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.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
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.
On The goop Podcast, GP and our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, chat with leading thinkers, culture
changers, and industry disruptors—from doctors to creatives, CEOs to spiritual healers—about shifting old
paradigms and starting new conversations. Tune in to hear from Oprah, Brené Brown, Bryan Stevenson,
Joe Dispenza, Zach Bush, Johann Hari, Peggy Orenstein, Elizabeth Gilbert, Erin Brockovich, and more.
We believe that 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.
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.
Meet Us IRL
We have permanent brick-and-mortar stores in New York,
LA, San Francisco, and London; a sundries shop in
Montecito; and a constantly rotating assortment of pop-
ups across the globe. There, you can shop, of course, and
you can also join our events—everything from clean beauty
master classes to mind-expanding energy readings. And a
few times a year, we host our wellness summit, In goop
Health, which is a day devoted to bringing all things goop
