Cruelty-Free Timeline

1948 – Since its foundation in 1948, Tresemme has changed hands quite a few times.

1968 – There is not much information about Tresemme’s earlier cruelty policies when it was owned by Emme or Alberto-Culver.

2010 – In 2010, it was acquired by a famous consumer supplier brand. However, after Tresemme’s 2010 merger, it took the ‘testing on animals when required by law’ policy of its parent brand.

2021 – In May, 2021, Tresemme announced it has become cruelty-free and its products are not tested on animals anywhere around the globe. It withdrew from mainland China too.

Tresemme became PETA-approved.

Currently – Tresemme products carry PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies logo.
