Tarte cosmetics have been bought out by Japanese company Kose, whom test on animals.
While they have assured their loyal customers that they will not be changing their stance on animal testing, it remains that their new parent company does test on animals. It is everyone’s own choice if they continue to support tarte, and as not all the companies products were vegan they were not on our vegan/cruelty free list anyway.
It is really disappointing that so many brands are selling to companies that do not share the same ethics (or that we are finding out the truth about these companies non-existant ethics)
and I sincerely hope this isn’t a continuing trend.
Please support completely vegan companies where you can.
