trèStiQue cosmetics are designed to simplify your makeup routine on-the-go with 2-in-1 beauty products, allowing you to create your own complete makeup kit of essential items in their lightweight bag. But is trèStiQue cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable? I’ve got the answers here!
Is trèStiQue Cruelty-Free?
trèStiQue is Cruelty-free! None of trèStiQue’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
trèStiQue Animal Testing Policy
trèStiQue has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of trèStiQue’s official animal testing statement:
Is trèStiQue Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, trèStiQue has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“At this time we do not sell our products in main land China.“
Is trèStiQue Vegan?
Not all of trèStiQue makeup products are vegan as some of their products contain beeswax, carmine, and/or other animal products and by-products. However, trèStiQue does offer some makeup that are suitable for vegans.
Below is a list of trèStiQue vegan products.
You can also find out which of their products are vegan as they’re all marked accordingly on their website in the product description. See below for an example.

As of 2021, I will no longer be regularly updating this list of trèStiQue vegan products as all of their vegan products are now clearly marked. Check their website for the most up-to-date and accurate information on which products are vegan or not.
The following trèStiQue products are suitable for vegans and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Is trèStiQue Sustainable?
trèStiQue’s headquarters is based in: USA
trèStiQue’s products are manufactured in: Produced in Italy and packaged in China
“Our product formulas are produced in Italy and packaged in China.”
*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.
trèStiQue’s new makeup brands are made from recycled plastic bottles, stating this is the first step in their commitment to sustainability:
“At trèStiQue, we’ve taken our first step into long-term sustainability practices with the launch of our new Sustainable Le Pak makeup bags! Consumer products greatly contribute to the amount of plastic waste we produce on the planet. In an effort to reduce the amount of plastic we send to the ocean, we’ve made 100% of the outer shell of our new Clean Ocean Collection bags from one recycled plastic bottle. We are currently working on ways to continue our commitment to sustainability and protecting our environment, stay tuned..”
Is trèStiQue‘s Mica Ethically-Sourced? trèStiQue claims their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.
“Yes, the Mica used to make our cruelty-free products are ethically-sourced without the use of child labour and we do source ingredients responsibly.”
I hope this article helped you to understand trèStiQue’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
