The Skin-Care Guru Who Started—and Stayed—on the Farm

In partnership with our friends at Dyson
The Skin-Care Guru Who Started—and Stayed—on the Farm
Skin-care guru, CEO, Vermont farmer, single mom, Latina, clean crusader…it’s hard to put Tata Harper in a box. Famous for her gorgeous, fast-acting, high-tech serums, oils, masks, and essences—and for creating all-natural luxury skin care before anyone else had mastered melding the two—Harper knows her stuff about skin and about clean beauty. She’s also one of the most glamorous people we know. She talked to us about her path from girl growing up in Colombia to self-possessed founder of an enormously successful company. Her strategies—for keeping your skin in beautiful shape no matter what your age, for scheduling asa powerful form of self-care (the woman never procrastinates, believe it or not), and for balancing work and life so they always make you happy—are life-changing. You’ll also find out what goes into a superserum that costs $450, why Harper believes all-natural is the way to go, and why (if you needed more reasons) you should make the shift to clean beauty.

Sex, Lies, and Something Called Flower Porn

In partnership with our friends at Dyson
Sex, Lies, and Something Called Flower Porn
As perfumer Douglas Little creates sexy, moody, wildly original, stunningly gorgeous scents, he’s changing the toxic fragrance industry. In this episode, he talks about the sexiness inherent in natural materials, what it’s like to make perfume with GP for goop, why his line of perfumes is called Heretic, why the link between sexuality and scent is so powerful, the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of using botanicals instead of synthetic chemicals, and what Flower Porn is all about. From his childhood fascination with the dirt and (sometimes poisonous) plants in the garden and his career in the wild world of luxury perfumes to some shocking things about fragrance—like why it’s one of the most toxic categories in the entire beauty industry and what it is about conventional scents that gives people headaches—Little’s story is absolutely fascinating. He’s so smart and has such a beautiful imagination—who knew that clean perfume could be as sexy and cool as he’s managed to make it?

Gwyneth Paltrow: No Makeup, Lots of Skin Care, Tricks to Beat Frizz, and…F*ckability

In partnership with our friends at Dyson
Gwyneth Paltrow: No Makeup, Lots of Skin Care, Tricks to Beat Frizz, and…F*ckability
In the premiere episode of our new podcast series, The Beauty Closet, hosts Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill sit down with GP, and really talk. In between discussions about being, in GP’s words, “f*ckable,” nontoxic beauty, the role diversity plays at goop HQ, crow’s-feet, the weird workings of fame on the sense of self, and the upgrade we all get around age forty, GP gives up her best skin, hair, and makeup tips, including what she did to get her wedding-day glow. (French fries and whisky played a role, as did some beautiful no-makeup makeup.) The no-holds-barred conversation is as fun, serious, and hilarious as GP herself.
