(Mirror Daily, United States) – Gwyneth Paltrow and her wellness brand Goop have recently promoted a line of Body Vibes healing stickers which supposedly balanced the energy in the body. They claim the stickers are made up of the same material as NASA spacesuits, but the space agency stepped up and blamed the brand for false advertising.
Falsely advertised healing stickers
These stickers are available on the Goop website for $60 a pack containing 10 pieces. They are presented like a miraculous healing tool which regulates the energy in our bodies and relieves stress and anxiety. The stickers supposedly contain the same conductive material found in NASA spacesuits, which tracks the vital signs of the astronauts and signals any small change.
However, it turns out that these claims are here only to attract customers. NASA officials issued a statement in which they revealed their suits do not contain any carbon conductive material. Also, they question these healing properties, and cite several reviews from unhappy customers who complained these stickers left marks on their bodies after removal.
Goop blamed the producer for the misunderstandings
After these accusations, Goop decided to edit the presentation of these healing stickers, and blamed the producers they acquired them from. These descriptions the products come with are not always in accordance with Goop’s view, claims the company, since they are provided by the manufacturers.
Goop says it has always been striving to offer the best wellness alternatives, and is constantly trying to improve their services by listening to the feedback it receives. After the healing stickers incident, the company carried an investigation on the apparently false claims and, until it finds further proof, removed the description from the website.
Body Vibes, the sticker producer, apologized for the confusion it created. It claimed that one of the engineers was misinformed regarding the material of the stickers, and this led to the faulty description of the product. They publicly apologized, and said they didn’t intend to trick anyone.
