Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop is catching heat for a ridiculous product once again. The rich lady lifestyle blog is selling “bio-healing” stickers for $120! The company claims the carbon material used in them was made by NASA for space suits and help with physical tension and anxiety, among other hippie-dippie things. Sounds too good to be true, which is why Gizmodo reached out to a NASA scientist to get the scoop. Turns out they’re BS. (Duh.)
“Wow,” former chief scientist at NASA’s human research division Mark Shelhamer said. “What a load of BS this is,” adding “Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up. If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?”
The actress’ website has since pulled “NASA” from it’s description and issued a statement after being questioned.
“As we have always explained, advice and recommendations included on goop are not formal endorsements and the opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of goop,” their rep wrote.” Our content is meant to highlight unique products and offerings, find open-minded alternatives, and encourage conversation.”
