The Inner Judge Flower Essence Blend, a tincture, was also listed in the lawsuit.
The Guardian reports that during those months, Goop's website touted the eggs' ability to balance hormones, prevent uterine prolapse, regulate menstrual cycles, and increase bladder control. Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow's company, will now stop making health claims about its vaginal eggs, and it will also pay $145,000 in civil penalties, in addition to offering refunds to any customers who may want it.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, Goop, has been slapped with penalties for "unsubstantiated claims". However, 10 prosecutors from the California Food, Drug and Medical Device Task Force said in their lawsuit that Goop's claims "were not supported by competent and reliable science". The jade and rose quartz eggs - which according to the company are made exclusively for Goop - sell for $66 and $55, respectively.
Gunter also warned that sleeping with a jade egg in one's vagina could lead to bacterial vaginosis or toxic shock syndrome - and that it was an equally bad idea to walk around with them inside. You can judge for yourself: The eggs remain available online.
Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a press release, "We will vigilantly protect consumers against companies that promise health benefits without the support of good science...or any science".

Kim Kardashian Meets Donald Trump On Prison Reform, Freeing Another Prisoner
One week later Trump granted the 63-year-old clemency, freeing her from prison after a more than two-decade stint on drug charges. The White House has not confirmed if Kardashian West will be meeting with another former reality TV star - the president.
In a statement to Bloomberg, Goop said it didn't agree with the view of prosecutors, but wanted to settle the case quickly.
Apparently, Goop knew - or, according to a complaint filed by the California consumer protection office, Goop should have known before they marketed this product, as well as a "flower essence" they claimed treated depression, to consumers on their website.
The most recent description of the Jade Egg on Goop's website says: "This nephrite jade stone helps connect the second chakra (the heart) and yoni for optimal self-love and well being".
Though the products are still available on Goop's website, the company has said it will fully refund customers who purchased the products between January 12 and August 31, 2017, according to prosecutors. "The law, though, sometimes views statements like this as advertising claims, which are subject to various legal requirements", Erica Moore, Goop's chief financial officer, said in a statement.
