Is Tarte certified cruelty-free by any organizations?

Is Tarte vegan?

Tarte is cruelty-free but not 100% vegan, meaning that some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients.

How do you determine that brands like Tarte are cruelty-free?

We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their full animal testing policy. If brands answer all our questions and confirm that no animal testing is happening at any point during production and beyond, they're added to our cruelty-free list. All brands we add have confirmed the information above.
