What’s goop?

In 2008, Gwyneth Paltrow launched goop from her kitchen as a homespun weekly newsletter. It’s grown a lot since then. 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. 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.

We take a curious, open-minded, and service-centric approach to the work we do. We ask questions about all of it. We believe that people can take what serves them and leave what doesn’t. We recommend what we love and what we think is worthy of your time and wallet. We value your trust above all things.

    We do not believe that beauty products need to be toxic to us in order to be luxurious and effective—and we have the clinical testing to prove it. We curate the best in clean beauty and also make our own line of glow-inducing skin care.

    We think it’s possible to build a great wardrobe from a handful of beautifully made essentials that will last for years. This is reflected in the styling stories we put together, our tightly curated fashion shop, and in G. Label, our fashion line that launches in monthly capsule collections.

    We have a tightly edited wellness shop of products vetted for efficacy by our in-house research scientists, and we’ve also created five vitamin and supplement protocols with doctors to cover all the bases.

    Cook

    We that believe whole food is the cornerstone of health, and that the happiest moments of the day happen at the dinner table. We think ingredient sourcing is important: for the planet, for our guts, and because you need fewer things and simpler recipes when the components stand on their own. While many of our recipes are relatively virtuous and free of common allergens, they are still delicious and simple. The goop shop is replete with essentials for your kitchen, including prep tools, PFOA-free cookware, and a beautiful assortment of tableware.

    Travel

    We’re all time-strapped, which means there’s no room on the itinerary for bad pizza. We traverse cities looking under every rock for the bucket-list meals, experiences, and shops that mean you can get back on the plane satisfied—whether it’s dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant or a quick bite at the taco truck down the street. We also know that not every trip is a vacation, which is why we include kid-friendly hotels, coffee shops where you can perch and work, and shortcuts and services for maximizing your days.
