In August 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed Lost Lanes' website, ethical.market, which was a market place selling a wide range of products from clothing to cosmetics.
To be listed on its website brand's products had to fit into one or more of Ethical Market's standards. Its standards included a provision stating "No Animal Testing". It explained "The seller confirms that no part of this product has ever been tested on animals during its design or manufacture."
While it was positive that ethical.market included this in its standards it was a not compulsory requirement that brands selling products on its website had to meet. In addition it did not provide any information on whether brands were required to have a fixed cut off date for animal tested ingredients. While Ethical Consumer couldn't find any products which didnt have the "No Animal Testing" label it was unclear how it was defined. It therefore received Ethical Consumer's middle rating for animal testing.
