Hello, everyone. I got a helpful email today by a nice gal named Robin. She is in the market for gluten free products and discovered that www.tartecosmetics.com has several gluten free products. I have not personally had a chance to ask the company any questions, but this sounds like a great place to look around.
Robin also reported “40% off of everything on their site now (plus free shipping if you spend $40. Coupon code is "luckyweek3” Great job sniffing out the sale, Robin :) I don’t know now long this promotion is going on, but it sounds like this reasonably priced cosmetic line will be even more reasonable for right now.
Here are their comments from the FAQ section about allergens:
At the bottom of every tarte product page in the tarte shop there is an ingredient listing where you can find the ingredients to the products you’re interested in. You can also find a list of gluten free products on the skinvigorating ingredients page. All gluten free products are marked on each product page in the tarte shop. Tarte cannot guarantee that any ingredients or products were produced in an allergen free environment.
I looked at a few products and they do put a clear easy-to-read list of ingredients and various benefits from each product. Just be sure that you remember Tarte doesn’t guarantee a gluten free environment. However, for those of you comfortable with cosmetics that are gluten-free by ingredient, you will have several beautiful choices.
If any of you have already purchased something from Tarte Cosmetics, let me know what you think. Thanks again to Robin for sending me her great find. :)
