Actress Jessica Alba poses for a portrait Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012, in New York to promote Honest.com, a new e-commerce eco friendly and non-toxic baby product company.

NEW YORK — Jessica Alba has another new baby.

She's launched an e-commerce company at Honest.com (named after her 3-year-old daughter Honor) to sell eco-friendly and toxic free family products for a monthly subscription.

Alba, who welcomed her second daughter last summer, said Tuesday the idea was born after she learned that toxic chemicals are in widely used, everyday products. The 30-year-old actress said the venture is "hands down" more nerve-racking than the opening of a new movie but also more gratifying.

Honest.com offers subscription packages for products including diapers, shampoo and laundry detergent. Alba has plans to expand the line based on customer feedback.
