A seasoned champion of health, acclaimed best-selling author, speaker, and purpose-driven social entrepreneur, Christopher’s commitment and consciousness have been instrumental in spreading global awareness about human health and the environment.
In his role as CEO of the non-profit Healthy Child Healthy World, Christopher led a coalition of doctors, global retailers, and notables to drive awareness of the emerging science that would help ignite a consumer movement to demand for safer, healthier, non-toxic products. Christopher then focused on consumer solutions and founded and built The Honest Company in 2012 with Jessica Alba – the paradigm-shifting non-toxic consumer brand of skincare, home cleaning, and beauty products that delivered upon the principles of purpose, innovation, and socially responsible. Most recently, Gavigan has launched a science-driven, therapeutic botanical brand called PRIMA to bridge the gap between healthcare and wellness, and bring hemp cannabinoids/CBD to consumers with clinically validated, industry-defining standards, and radical transparency.
He has authored numerous pieces on environmental health, sustainability, and the natural marketplace for national publications including People Magazine, Huffington Post, USA Today, CNN, Medium, and Fast Company. Christopher sits on the Board of Directors of Mount Sinai Hospital and has received numerous recognitions: UCSB Outstanding Alumni – 2019, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year – 2015, WebMD’s Health Hero Award – 2010, Men’s Journal GameChanger Award – 2010, NY Times Bestseller Nonfiction Book List – 2009, Elle Magazine’s Green Award – 2007. Christopher is a proudest father of four children: Luke (13), Evie (10), Poppy (9), and Josephine (5) and lives with his wife, Jessica Capshaw in Bedford, New York.
