Cargo Cosmetics is a cruelty-free makeup brand! Their products and ingredients are n0t tested on animals, and they don’t hire third parties to test on their behalf. Also, Cargo products aren’t sold in China.
In July 2012, Cargo was acquired by TPR Holdings. TPR Holdings currently owns Cargo Cosmetics, Nicole Richie Fragrance, Oscar Brandt Hair Care, Sweet Breath Oral Care, FCUK Fragrance, Freeze 24/7 Skincare, as well as Zirh Men’s Skincare. Some of these companies test on animals, so it can be said that Cargo is owned by a parent company that isn’t cruelty-free. Nonetheless, the brand itself is cruelty-free.
Here’s an e-mail from a representative:
Thank you for your interest in our products.
You will be happy to know that Cargo Cosmetics does not participate in animal testing nor do we contract to 3rd parties that currently test on animals. We are not currently sold in China.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
