Uh-Oh! Gwyneth Paltrow's Most Eyebrow-Raising Goop Moments

  Uh-Oh! Gwyneth Paltrow's Most Eyebrow-Raising Goop Moments In Goop we trust? Gwyneth Paltrow has courted controversy since launching her wellness and lifestyle brand, Goop, in 2008. What started as a weekly newsletter from the Clean Plate author, grew to an expansive website that spawned a fashion line, wellness products, recipe portal, podcast, magazine and health summit, among other projects. “We operate from a place of curiosity and nonjudgment, and we start hard conversations, crack open taboos, and look for connection and resonance everywhere we can find it,” Goop’s website reads. “We don’t mind being the tip of the spear — in short, we go first so you don’t have to. We’re glad you’re here.” Since its launch, Goop has released a few controversial products, including the Jade Egg (it is claimed to increase sexual energy when placed in one’s vagina) and the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle. Paltrow, however, stands by her choice to release the items, especially the scent that may make some people uncomfortable. “You grew up getting messaging around the feminine care that was heavily scented with synthetic fragrances and all this kind of thing,” Paltrow exclusively told Us Weekly in September 2020, regarding her cheeky candle. “I just felt it was time to make a bit of a feminist statement around accepting who we are and our femininity.” A year prior, the Iron Man actress came under more fire after the In Goop Health conference in London in June 2019.
