Things don’t look too well for Gwyneth Paltrow. A few days after the star claimed that she plans on focusing less on her acting career to be able to spend more time dealing with her business, it seems that her business, Goop, is facing some problems.
Allegedly, NASA accused the company of scamming customers with its healing stickers. In response to the accusations, Goop decided to withdraw its claims about the wearable stickers, which were promoted on the company’s website. So, the stickers were actually produced by Body Vibes and were promoted on Goop’s website at the cost of $60 for a pack of 10.
The website claimed that the stickers are “made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits.” The same message added that they can “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies” and will “fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety.”
The claims made in the description of the product were completely dismissed by NASA. A rep said that the agency does “not have any conductive carbon material lining spacesuits.” Goop reacted soon after and removed the post. The company also denied responsibility saying that the company that made the claims was to be inquired for their accuracy.
“The opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of [Goop.] Based on the statement from NASA, we’ve gone back to the company to inquire about the claim and removed the claim from our site until we get additional verification,” Goop’s statement said.
A statement was also released by Body Vibes, which said that it was all a communications error. “We have learned that our engineer was misinformed by a distributor about the material in question, which was purchased for its unique specifications. We regret not doing our due diligence before including the distributor’s information in the story of our product,” Body Vibes said.
It is yet to see if the Goop’s image will be in any way affected by this scandal.
