In March 2020 Ethical Consumer viewed Suma’s completed questionnaire and website for information about its policy on the issue of animal testing. A webpage entitled 'Toxic ingredients' was shared that stated, "Suma believes that beauty and household products should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements. All of our own brand personal care products and household and cleaning products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited."
Suma were therefore considered to have a positive policy on animal testing issues.
