Goop and founder Gwyneth Paltrow has been in the news a lot lately. Most of the time it is due to something negative such as trying to rip off their customers by selling feel-good items at ridiculously expensive prices. Today ‘s headlines are because her website, Goop.com, is selling wearable healing stickers at the cost of $60! But even worse than that are the ridiculous claims about the so-called healing stickers.
Paltrow says they are “made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear.”
The website claims, “Body Vibes stickers come pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing them to target imbalances. While you’re wearing them—close to your heart, on your left shoulder or arm—they’ll fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety. The founders, both aestheticians, also say they help clear skin by reducing inflammation and boosting cell turnover.”
In a bid to debunk her claims, NASA has said that it doesn’t use carbon material to line its suits and their current spacesuit has no carbon fibers in it – period.
It seems Goop’s ridiculous claims almost match their ridiculous prices!
Right Wing News reports:
Once dubbed ‘the most beautiful woman’ alive (God only knows why), Gwyneth Paltrow is as loony as they come. Or maybe, she’s as crafty as a fox ripping people off for feel-good weird crap. Maybe both. She seems to have had a run-in with NASA recently. This is a woman who sells stuff on her site called Goop.com that is pricey and utterly useless. You can get a t-shirt for $105, or you can read about “vaginal steams.” I can’t even process that one. But just as ridiculous are her wearable healing stickers that promote healing. Just no.
