Los Angeles, March 22 (IANS) Hollywood actress Jessica Alba admits she didn’t always make the right choices in her acting career, but launching her eco-friendly lifestyle company has made her more creative.
“My company has weirdly allowed me to be more creative in my roles. It helps me work with people I love and appreciate,” contactmusic.com quoter Alba as saying.
“For me, acting was a lot about making the right choices and trusting my instincts. I didn’t always listen to my gut and make the right choice,” she added.
The 31-year-old actress, who has daughters Honor, four, and 20-month-old Haven with husband Cash Warren, launched her company after becoming a mother. It deals in organically-produced nappies, baby wipes and bath products.
Alba feared big brand baby products could be harmful to her children.
“It’s really hard to find baby products that use non-toxic chemicals that mums can trust. Major corporate brands that label their products eco-friendly or non-toxic are usually referring to the way they make their packaging, not their product,” she said.
The actress has also written her own book titled, “The Honest Life”, dispensing tips on living well, parenting and healthy eating.
“I absolutely do these things. That’s why I wrote the book. There’s lots of options, like delivery services for fresh produce that is organic, if people just want to do a couple of things in the book that are super-easy. You can take what you want from the book,” she said.
