The Honest Company is committed to resolving all disputes in a fair, effective and cost-efficient manner. We seek to resolve any customer concerns through our Honest Support services at 1.888.862.8818. However, if you are dissatisfied with our customer service's resolution of your matter, these Terms of Service provide that disputes may be resolved in binding arbitration or small claims court. Our arbitration agreement for U.S. disputes, which is set forth below, has been designed to make arbitration as convenient and inexpensive for our customers as possible. We will abide by the terms of our current arbitration provision in all instances.
Arbitration Agreement: United States Only
(a) We and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted and include:
- Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory.
- Claims that arose before these or any prior versions of our Terms of Service (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- Claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to "The Honest Company", "we" and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under these Terms of Service or any prior agreements between us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
You agree that, by accessing and using this Site, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms of Service.
(b) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice") to the other party. A Notice to The Honest Company should be addressed to: Notice of Dispute, The Honest Company, 12130 Millennium Drive, Suite 500 Los Angeles, CA 90094 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received by us, you or The Honest Company may commence an arbitration proceeding.
During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by The Honest Company or you prior to selection of an arbitrator shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or The Honest Company is entitled.
You may download or copy a form Notice from The Honest Company General Notice Form (PDF). You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website (http://adr.org) under the "Forms" tab.
(c) After The Honest Company receives a Notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $75,000. (Currently, the filing fee is $125 for claims under $10,000, but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, The Honest Company will pay it directly after receiving a written request to do so at the Notice Address.) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), as modified by these Terms of Service, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall be bound by these Terms of Service. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If you choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond only by telephone or submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a hearing.
Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based. You and we agree that any awards or findings of fact or conclusions of law made in an arbitration of their dispute or claim are made only for the purposes of that arbitration and may not be used by any other person or entity in any later arbitration of any dispute or claim involving The Honest Company. You and we agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither of us will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which we were a party.
Except as otherwise provided for herein, we will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by us that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules. An award may be entered against a party who fails to appear at a duly noticed hearing.
(d) If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of The Honest Company's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will:
- pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 ("the alternative payment"), whichever is greater; and
- pay your attorney, if any, the amount of reasonable attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses (including reasonable expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the "attorneys' fees").
If we did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and reasonable attorneys' fees, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses and the alternative payment and the attorneys' fees at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
(e) The right to attorneys' fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. Although we may have a right to recover attorneys' fees and expenses in certain jurisdictions if we prevail in an arbitration, we will not seek such an award.
(f) The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. The arbitrator shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, and the parties agree that any injunctive award may be vacated or corrected on appeal by either party to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error. Each party will bear its own costs and fees on any such appeal. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
(g) All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential, other than as part of an appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction.
Arbitration Agreement: Canada

When you invite friends to register for an account at Honest.com, you will receive a $20 USD Referral Credit for each friend or family member who makes a qualified first purchase. Your friend or family member must be a new member of The Honest Company and Honest Beauty (this offer excludes returning or existing members) and live in a different household.
You will only receive a Referral Credit for your friend or family member's first qualified purchase if the purchase was a result of an invite from you via an authorized referral method. If your friend or family member does not click on the personal referral link in their invite email or other invite mechanism to accept your invitation, you may not receive a Referral Credit and we will have no liability to you because there is no discernible way to identify that the purchase resulted from your referral.
A qualified purchase is considered an Honest Shop purchase (a la carte purchase) or a subscription Bundle order, excluding purchases of Honest Gift Cards or Gift Bundles. Free Trial orders also do not count as a qualified purchase. There is no limit to the amount of Referral Credits you can earn and Referral Credits will accrue with every eligible friend or family member you refer. You can track your Referral Credits by visiting the Invites section in My Account on Honest.com.
If two people refer the same friend or family member, the member who sent the link that is used to create the new member's account will be considered the referring member, regardless of which link was sent to the new member first. There is a limit of one Referral Credit per new email address that is registered on Honest.com.
Spending Referral Credit on the Honest Services
Referral Credits are valid for 12 months from issuance. Your Referral Credits are automatically applied to your purchases at checkout in the order in which they expire (i.e., first to expire will be applied first).
You can check the amount of Referral Credits you have earned and their associated expiration dates at any time by visiting the Invites section in My Account.
Prohibitions and Cancellation
Referral Credits are issued to a single Honest.com account holder at our discretion and cannot be transferred between accounts or between users. Credits cannot be bartered, exchanged or sold.
Referral Credits are a promotional offer and are not a payment instruments. Referral Credits are issued without any exchange of money or value from you and you have no vested property right or interest in them.
Referral Credits have no cash value by themselves; they are only deemed to have a notional cash value of $20 if they are used in connection with an eligible purchase on our Site.
We reserve the right to limit or cancel your Referral Credits in our sole discretion if we determine that you have violated these Terms of Service, including through fraudulent or misleading referral activity (for example, by inviting fake people or individuals with whom you do not have a personal or family relationship to join The Honest Company, using false names, using multiple email accounts or email addresses, impersonating another person or otherwise providing false or misleading information to us) or if we terminate your account for any reason. You may also be liable for civil and/or criminal penalties under applicable law.
Changes to Referral Credit Terms
We reserve the right in our sole discretion at any time and without prior notice to you, to add to, remove or otherwise change the terms applicable to the issuance and use of Referral Credits. Such changes may include, without limitation, how you may earn and spend Referral Credits, how long Referral Credits last, minimum purchase amounts with which Referral Credits may be used and the lifetime maximum amount of Referral Credits that you may earn.
Gift cards are available in any denomination between $10.00-$500.00 USD. The amount of the gift card that you purchase will be charged to your bank or credit card upon your confirmation and submission of the order.
To make a purchase with an Honest gift card, the gift card holder must register an account with The Honest Company and must visit www.honest.com to redeem the gift card toward the purchase of eligible products from The Honest Company. Each purchase amount will be deducted from the gift card total credit balance until that balance equals zero. If an order exceeds the amount of total available credit on the gift card, the remaining balance must be paid with a bank and credit card.
Your Honest gift cards have no expiration date.
Gift cards cannot be used to purchase other Honest gift cards or gift bundles and they cannot be reloaded, resold, transferred for value, redeemed for cash or applied to any other account, unless otherwise required by law.
Gift card purchases cannot be refunded. Purchases of items from Honest.com can be returned pursuant to our return policies set forth in this policy and elsewhere.
Risk of Loss
We are not responsible if a gift card is misplaced, lost, stolen, destroyed or used without your permission, and we have no obligation to replace a gift card under such circumstances.
The Honest Company reserves the right to close member accounts and request alternative forms of payment if a fraudulently obtained gift card is redeemed and/or used to make purchases on the Honest.com website or mobile application.
