Laundry detergent from Jessica Alba’s Honest Company Inc. may contain ingredients it promised to avoid using in their products.
“Our findings support that there is a significant amount of sodium lauryl sulfate in Honest’s detergent,” said Barbara Pavan, a chemist at one of the labs, Impact Analytical. Another lab, Chemir, a division of EAG Inc., said its test for SLS found about the same concentration as Tide, which is made by P&G. “It was not a trace amount,” said Matthew Hynes, a chemist at Chemir who conducted the test.
Honest Company Inc. disputes the labs’ findings and says its own testing found no SLS in their products. (RELATED: 10 Reasons You Should Never Use Anything Containing Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)
