GWYN­NIE PAL­TROW’S BRAND SLAMMED

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Time Out -

Mark Shel­hamer, former chief sci­en­tist at NASAs hu­man re­search divi­sion, has crit­i­cised Os­car­win­ning ac­tor Gwyneth Pal­trow’s (right) life­style and well­ness brand for pro­mot­ing bo­gus $120 (`7730) stick­ers that con­tain ma­te­ri­als used in space­suits.

Ac­cord­ing to tech­nol­ogy web­site Giz­modo, Body Vibes stick­ers are the lat­est prod­uct pro­moted by Pal­trow’s brand. Pal­trow’s web­site said the stick­ers come pro­grammed to an ideal fre­quency, al­low­ing them to tar­get im­bal­ances in hu­man body’s en­ergy.

Shel­hamer said stick­ers’ claim to have car­bon ma­te­rial from NASA space­suits is false. “Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up. If they pro­mote heal­ing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are re­moved,” the sci­en­tist added. Later, The ac­tor’s web­site pulled out the men­tion of the prod­uct con­tain­ing the NASA ma­te­rial.
