Gwyneth Paltrow explains the inspiration for Goop's nontoxic lube

Posted on


Some people watch Netflix for fun. Gwyneth Paltrow watches it for inspiration.

In an interview on ChelseaPaltrow revealed that Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie inspired Goop’s sex issue — particularly the company’s decision to start selling nontoxic lube.

“Frankie makes her own homemade lube,” Paltrow says of the show. “We started thinking about, ‘Is lube toxic? Why is she making homemade lube?’… We learned that lube is actually really toxic… so we found a nontoxic organic lube that we are now selling on Goop.com.”

Watch the full clip — which also includes Chelsea Handler trying to understand what a pelvic floor trainer is — above, and see Chelsea when new episodes debut on Netflix each Wednesday, Thurdsay, and Friday.
