WSJ Keeps Up Pressure On Honest Co.

The Wall Street Journal is keeping the pressure on Los Angeles-based Honest Co., saying this morning that the company that makes Honest Co's laundry detergent, Earth Friendly Products, removed all of the claims that its laundry detergent was free of sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) last spring. The WSJ cited experts in the industry who said that the compound which Honest Co. says it uses instead of SLS, sodium coco sulfate (SCS), actually contains "a large amount of SLS", despite being made from coconut oil. Honest Co.'s says that it does not use SLS in its products.
