In May 2021, Ethical Consumer viewed a story on Telegraph website dated August 2018, titled, 'Superdrug face backlash against Botox treatment from animal rights groups'. It stated:
"Superdrug is facing a backlash from animal rights groups for selling botox injections tested on animals.
"The high street retailer said it would provide the injections at one of its London stores from as little as £99, following feedback from thousands of its beauty conscious customers.
"However, Superdrug, has come under fierce criticism from animal welfare organisations who highlight the cruelty that can be involved in animal testing of these types of products."
The company therefore lost half a mark under Animal Testing.
