Is Tarte Cruelty free?

Updated: Jun 7, 2019


Tarte cosmetics has a cruelty free logo on their products

Tarte Cosmetics does not test on animals and is certified cruelty-free by PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies Program and Logical Harmony*. But it is worth noting that Tarte is now owned by a parent company , the Japanese multinational company called Kose. Kose sells products in China and is therefore not cruelty free- which we discussed briefly on our article here.

A consensus of our community believes that if a company supports animal testing on any of its brands then they don’t want to give the company their money and therefore Tarte is rated as not rated cruelty free as if you buy it your money goes to the Japanese company.
