Jes­sica Alba (above) and her cos­met­ics com­pany have come un­der fire af­ter out­raged cus­tomers com­plained that the brand’s sun­screen is in­ef­fec­tive and doesn’t pro­vide proper pro­tec­tion.

The Sin City star’s busi­ness claims that it sells safe and eco-friendly house- hold and baby care prod­ucts, but the prod­ucts have up­set con­sumers, who re­cently bashed the brand online. The up­set users posted on so­cial media snaps of their red, burnt skin af­ter us­ing the prod­uct, with one even claim­ing they “got fried”.

“I’ve tried dozens of sun­screens and words can’t come close to de­scrib­ing how ter­ri­ble this prod­uct com­pares even to the cheap­est stuff you find at dis­count stores,” one user wrote. A rep for Alba’s com­pany re­leased a state­ment, “We’re com­mit­ted to pro­vide safe and ef­fec­tive prod­ucts, and we take all con­sumer feed­back very se­ri­ously. Our prod­uct was tested by an in­de­pen­dent third party against the pro­to­cols pre­scribed by the US Food & Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion’s (FDA) mono­graph for over-the-counter sun­screen prod­ucts. The re­sults showed that our prod­uct is ef­fec­tive and safe for use as an 80 minute wa­ter­re­sis­tant...” he said.
