Jessica Alba covers the July 2018 issue of InStyle magazine photographed by Anthony Maule and styled by Karla Welch.
On her parents: They are American, but my mom’s side is Danish and French, and my dad is Mexican. When I started, I was labeled “exotic.” That was it. It was like you had to be mysterious and sexual. Back in the day, if you were Latina, it was always a stereotype. They couldn’t write you as a normal person in the world. [Director] Robert Rodriguez was kinda the first person who made Latinos commercial in his movies, like in the Spy Kids franchise. And then Jennifer Lopez and Salma Hayek [helped pave the way]. It was tough in the beginning.
On The Honest Company: It’s my baby! I’m so proud of it, and I want it to be successful. I believe we’re changing the conversation. You never really heard about toxic chemicals in products before. It wasn’t that commercial when we launched six years ago. People weren’t questioning ingredients or whether there was a safe alternative. Some people were, but they were sort of looked at as like, “Oh, you’re a hippie.” But now it’s mainstream, and that’s cool. So we were pioneers. Hopefully, it will allow people to live better and healthier lives because they’ll at least know what to avoid.
