Jessica Alba, 34 year-old, is known for her roles in movies such as Sin City or Valentine’s Day, has more to her life than Hollywood’s glitter. She was just elected “richest entrepreneurial woman in America”.
As she was destined to become one of the most popular faces on the big screen, her life changed the day she became a mother.
In 2008 after an allergic reaction to a cleaning product she decided to get cosmetic products’ composition analyzed (with a special attention for children product). Careful about her kid’s health, she launches her own product line, which is 100% organic and eco-responsible.
In 3 years, Jessica Alba’s Honest Company got to the top of the women entrepreneur’s chart. Her company is now worth over a billion dollars, she owns between 15%-20% of it that she shares with Christopher Gavigan, Sean Kane and Brian Lee.
Her fortune is evaluated today around 200 million dollars. It is quite surprising for a movie star to appear in the women entrepreneur chart, which counts women such as Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé (50$ million) but their fortune is more linked to their media activity.
