Jessica Alba says running her business is a "life calling". The actress loves her acting work and her eco-friendly company, The Honest Company, but says they both require very different skills. She said: "Having a company that's making the world a better place is a life calling. Performing has also been a life calling, but they're so different. "It takes a completely different side of my brain to do one versus the other. But I'm truly very proud of The Honest Company." The actress was inspired to start up The Honest Company which offer a range of household, health care, and beauty products after experiencing an allergic reaction during her second pregnancy. She explained to Glam Belleza Latina magazine: "I had an allergic reaction to baby laundry detergent when I was pregnant, which made me wonder: If a baby laundry detergent gives me a horrible reaction, then what will it do to a newborn? I realised that so many toxic chemicals are used in everyday products."
