In August 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed New Internationalist's shop website and found that it sold cosmetics and toiletries. However the company did not appear to have a policy regarding animal testing.
One brand called "Incognito" stated that its products were cruelty free.
New Internationalist was contacted to confirm its policy on animal testing however no response was received. Due to the lack of clear policy regarding the issue of animal testing New Internationalist lost a whole mark under Ethical Consumer's category.
