We appreciate mom all year long, but the time to make sure you show it is coming up in just a few weeks – Mother’s Day! Many moms do it all – taking care of the kids, the house, the husband, the bills, and so much more. And celebrity mamas (aside from their sprawling estates and hired help) are no different! Many A-list mom-treprenuers juggle successful careers, beautiful families, and even have an Academy Award to boot! We wanted to take a minute to give them some credit — especially since many have joined us in the beauty industry by launching product lines, yoga apparel, and more.
In honor of Mother’s Day, here are our favorite Spa Week-approved celebrity mom-trepreneurs:
She may have caught some media slack for “pre-chewing” baby Bear’s food, but this is one Mama Bear who’s got her act together. Alicia is committed to eco and vegan living, and helps to spread the mantra through a passionate following.
Juice Beauty: Alicia’s commitment to natural products is shown in her collaboration with Juice Beauty. The formulas are made from vegan and organic ingredients and can be found in sustainable packaging made from over 90% of recycled materials. The line includes a cleanser, moisturizer and pretty makeup!
“Kind” Life Brand: The Kind Life is Alicia’s website empire, where followers go for tips on living a happy, whole, and green life from her and her team. It’s an extension of her best-selling book, The Kind Diet, which offers vegan recipes and outlines the benefits of this healthier lifestyle.
Gwyneth drew inspiration from the Bible in naming her little ones Apple and Moses – and then went on to create her own type of sanctuary for devotees – GOOP, where dedicated fans can come to follow (and worship) Gwyneth’s lifestyle advice.
GOOP: GOOP is a weekly subscription website offering tips on everything from homemaking to shopping, wellness and more. And not only that – the site is constantly working with new, exclusive collaborators and selling (often pricey) lifestyle must-haves.
High-powered celeb stylist, Rachel Zoe, doubles as a doting mother to adorable son Skyler. And these days it seems like she’s at it nonstop dreaming up new business ventures, too!
Rachel Zoe Apparel: After years of dressing the hottest names in Hollywood, Zoe got behind the drawing board and finally started her own premium apparel collection – but this trendy line with a designer name tag doesn’t come cheap.
DreamDry: Zoe’s newest venture into the world of blow dry bars is only about two months old – but according to Racked the business can already be described as a booming success! The chic décor is exactly what we’d expect – and we can’t wait to try it out!
This former VS Angel decided to spread her beauty wings and fly in 2007 when she launched eco-friendly beauty brand Josie Maran Cosmetics. Moms to be and women everywhere who care about the earth AND looking beautiful are thankful for Maran’s creativity!
Josie Maran Cosmetics Line: Josie Maran Cosmetics is a pioneer in the eco-friendly beauty field, as it was one of the first conscious lines to maintain a feeling of luxury, too. With a cult following of beauty editors, bloggers and celebrities alike, the Josie Maran product line continues to grow and introduce new favorites, including our Spa Week Beauty Editor’s must-have multitasking product, Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Oil!
This gorgeous mom got her start as a teenager in films like The Secret World of Alex Mack but boy, has she grown up since! With the additions of Honor and Haven, Jessica Alba now has her own Fantastic Four right at home!
The Honest Co.: Alba is another mom who champions the clean, chemical-free and eco-friendly. Inspired and empowered by motherhood, Alba felt the need to protect her children and ensure that only the safest products were used on them, thus The Honest Co. was born. Retailers of everything from bath and body products to diapers and eco cleaning supplies, consider this a one-stop shop for expectant mamas!
