Beauty Couture Corner: Tarte Cosmetics – High-Performance Naturals (Healthy Beauty)

I was introduced to Tarte Cosmetics a few years ago, when I applied for a job there. Needless to say I didn’t receive it (It’s ok, I still have LOVE for yall ;)). But while researching the company for the interview, I really fell in love with the brand. Their packaging is fashionable and chic and their makeup is the same, but also healthy and nourishing for your skin… they really have done an awesome job with their marketing and branding.

Tarte’s “Skinvigorating™ Benefits are:

√ Formulated without mineral oil

√ Formulated without phthalates

√ Formulated without synthetic fragrance

√ Formulated without paraben

√ Formulated without sodium lauryl sulfate

√ Dermatologist tested

√ Cruelty free

√ Natural fragrance

√ Clinically tested

I emailed them to see if their products were gluten-free as while (You know I got my gluten-allergy folks back!!), and here was Jennifer Crimmins response:

Hello Shemmyla,

Thank you for contacting tarte about our gluten-free products and policy.  We recognize that identifying gluten-free products is imperative to some of our customers.  In 2010 tarte modified all packaging and removed claims that read “formulated without gluten.” While tarte can ensure the products that formerly made up the gluten-free category were formulated without gluten, the plant where they are manufactured may or may not produce items with raw materials containing gluten. Since we cannot confirm this, and our priority is the safety and health of our customers, we decided to voluntarily remove the gluten-free category and therefore no longer state that any of our products are 100% gluten-free. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

Thanks Jennifer for all the great info!!

Until the next time stay, “Beautiful, Sassy, and Sophisticated!”

Shemmyla Green aka Ms. Sophisticated
