You know nothing about vagina, Goop 

Gwyneth Paltrow’s health and wellness empire Goop agreed to settle a lawsuit alleging it made unscientific claims about several of its products, including its infamous vaginal healing eggs.

On Tuesday, Goop Inc. agreed to pay $145,000 in civil penalties brought by the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office and others that alleged the company’s claims about its “vaginal eggs” were hogwash.

“We will vigilantly protect consumers against companies that promise health benefits without the support of good …or any ,” District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a written statement.

Starting from the payment, Goop will no longer promiss “vaginal egg” balances your hormones, regulates your menstrual cycle, or helps with bladder control but will continue selling the eggs online with updated language describing the products.

The company is also offering a refund for customers who purchased the eggs or the flower essence under false claims however says it has not received any complaints about the products.

What the heck is “vaginal egg”?

Goop’s $66 Jade Egg and $55 Rose Quartz egg wew claimed to be a “strictly guarded secret of Chinese royalty” that once helped queens and concubines keep their nether regions in shape.

As Paltrow told Jimmy Kimmel last summer, “women insert the jade egg in their lady parts… to help tone the pelvic floor.”

When Kimmel asked exactly how the eggs worked, Paltrow’s answer became a little murkier.

“I don’t know. I need to start my jade egg practice,” she said with a laugh. But she added that the company has sold “tons” of the eggs, and that “women, actually, have had incredible results.”

This was not the first time Goop got into a sticky situation with false advertising.

In 2017, Truth in Advertising found more than 50 instances of factual errors on Goop’s website and in 2017 Goop was under fire for saying stickers it sold were made with NASA spacesuit material and could “rebalance” your energy and reduce anxiety.
