Customers have started to be more focused on healthy products and are much interested in everything that is natural. Thus, numerous companies who mislead customers about the content of their products turn out to be sued. Something like that also happened to Jessica Alba's company, who was named in a lawsuit over deceptive or misleading labeling.

The lawsuit was filed by customer Jonathan D. Rubin, who claimed that Jessica's company was misleading customers by featuring labels describing its products as "natural," when they actually contained synthetic ingredients. According to the lawsuit, these ingredients could potentially be hazardous. The customer unhappy with Jessica's company claimed that products such as Hand Soap, Honest Diapers and Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner, could actually be harmful to customers.

According to the plaintiff, certain ingredients contained by these products were potentially hazardous, as various studies have shown. Moreover, he said that the Honest Sunscreen product was even more dangerous, as it was completely ineffective. This means that customers' skin is not protected and skin issues could be experienced. Well, this issue is not actually new.

In fact, Honest received a lot of bad publicity last month when a series of complaints were filed by customers, claiming that the product was inefficient. Customers suffered sunburn because of this and took to social media to share their frustration.

Jonathan Rubin filed the complaint on behalf of himself and other customers, seeking a nationwide class representation including customers who purchased Honest products and were in a similar situation. The plaintiff sought for Jessica Alba's company to refund to customers all the profits that Honest made from the sale of these products. Jessica Alba has not responded to this lawsuit yet.

However, she did respond to the complaints on the inefficiency of its sunscreen. "Protecting our loved ones and yours is the reason we founded @honest. As parents, it pains us to hear that anyone has had a negative experience with our Sunscreen," the beautiful actress shared on Instagram. "We develop and use Honest Sunscreen to protect our own children - Honor, Haven, Luke, Evie, and Poppy - at the park, in the pool, outside, every day. As with everything we do, we take sun protection seriously here at Honest," she added.

The lawsuit has just been filed, so it is yet to see if the claims were really true.
