In August 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed Green Tulip's website and found that it sold ranges of toiletries. However it did not sell any of its own branded toiletries.
Ethical Consumer expected companies retailing toiletries to have a "no animal testing" policy. No statement could be found on its website regarding Green Tulip's policy. It was noted that some of the brands listed did state "no animal testing" but this was not under each brand.

In August 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed Green Tulip's website and found that it sold some items made from leather. As leather was a slaughterhouse byproduct it lost half a mark under the animal rights category. Green Tulip told Ethical Consumer "The only leather bags we have are from Joyn India (coming soon) who are Fair Trade Federation members."
Leather, as the hide of a dead animal, naturally decomposes. To prevent this decomposition the leather industry uses a cocktail of harmful chemicals including trivalent chromium sulphate, sodium sulphide, sodium sulfhydrate, arsenic and cyanide to preserve it. Tannery effluent also contains large amounts of other pollutants, such as protein, hair, salt, lime sludge and acids. These can all pollute the land, air, and water supply making it a highly polluting industry. As a result the company lost half a mark in the Pollution and Toxics category.
