Is Tarte cruelty-free? Yes!

Tarte is cruelty-free. There is no animal testing occurring on Tarte products or ingredients by Tarte, a parent company, or any companies that they work with. Tarte also does not test on animals when required by law.

Tarte is owned by Kose, and Kose is not cruelty-free. I think everyone should decide for themselves how they feel about parent companies who test on animals. Supporting any cruelty-free brand is better than purchasing products from a brand that tests on animals. I encourage everyone who supports cruelty-free brands to let Tarte and Kose know that being cruelty-free is important to you.

  1. Hi there,

    Recently I started noticing on tartes packaging that it is ‘made in china’. Does this mean that the package alone is made there? Or the actual product as well?

  2. Actually Kose says on their website that they are cruelty-free:


    At Kose, we are promoting the development of cosmetics (including quasi-drugs) with a policy not to conduct animal experiments.

    Japanese websites say that Kose discontinued animal testing as of October, 2014.

    1. Sadly, they do still test on animals when required by law. 🙁 Since this is done through a hired 3rd party, they are able to say that they themselves do not test on animals.
