Goop is a lifestyle and wellness brand founded by Gweneth Paltrow, which first began as a weekly email newsletter. The actress claims to have started the brand right from her kitchen, and Goop has seen a lot of growth and success over the years. When asked what inspired her brand’s name, Paltrow said that it came from an acquaintance who told her that every successful company has two’ o’s in their name. 

The brand was finally incorporated in 2011, and by then, it had already gathered worldwide recognition. In 2012, an e-commerce website was also added, and Goop gradually started expanding its business. The next breakthrough came when Beyonce donated her shoes for the annual charity closet sale. The following article talks about the type of information you will find on her website, what you should read and what is worth buying from Paltrow’s unique boss venture. 

What Should You Read There?

Lifestyle 
First launched in 2008, the newsletter started with articles on health, lifestyle, and fashion, and its first articles were on Turkey Ragu and Banana-Nut Muffins. It had articles on new-age advice on beauty, travel, health, and cooking fuelled with curiosity and guaranteed a fun read. 

Every newsletter would have an editor’s note which would contain insights into Paltrow’s daily life. The Goop website achieved its first breakthrough by publishing “Conscious Uncoupling,” an article by Habib Sadeghi and Sherry Sami. Since then, the website has always been in the news for publishing avant-garde articles under fire from numerous critics and fans alike.

Cooking recipes
The recipes on the Goop website are generally free of common allergens and are curated to be exceptionally healthy for your body. They are primarily simple yet delicious recipes that would take very little time to prepare—detox recipes from Paltrow’s kitchen to comfort foods like chicken soup. The Goop website is replete with recipes from around the world. 

Travel
Goop’s travel section contains curated travel guides and itineraries. It also has details about the top destinations worldwide- places to visit, transportation, and guides about the nooks and corners of the place. The website also has articles on the top destinations to get married in and a section where travelers can find places to go, which has the address and phone numbers of the places cited.

What Should You Buy There?

Beauty Products
In 2016, the website started selling its skin-care line, and gradually, the e-commerce website grew in popularity. Goop believes in creating cruelty-free products which are both luxurious and practical. They also sell their line of ‘glow-inducing skincare,’ and recently, they have started selling their products in pop-up shops worldwide. Goop by Juice Beauty was the make-up line that was launched in collaboration with Juice Beauty.

Goop Fragrance
This is Goop’s all-natural line of fragrance which sells a range of perfumes and scented candles. Perfumer Douglas Little created Edition 01 Winter in 2016, the first fragrance of the line. They are all specially curated and selected and are hits across stores worldwide.

Goop Wellness
As business gradually boomed, Paltrow and her team decided to enter the wellness industry. To that effect, they started creating health and vitamin supplements that are gluten and GMO-free. The range of supplements was inspired by an article on postnatal depletion that was published by Goop earlier.

Fashion and Activewear Collection
Goop’s fashion line was first launched in 2016 and contained personal favorites and items specially selected by Gweneth Paltrow herself. Further, Goop also released a limited-edition activewear line that is an activewear enthusiast’s best dream. The line was launched in partnership with Proenza Schouler.
