In December 2019 Ethical Consumer viewed Lucy Bee's website and the questionnaire the company returned to Ethical Consumer.

The questionnaire stated: "Lucy Bee does not and shall not conduct, commission, or be a party to Animal Testing of any cosmetic and/or household products including, without limitation, formulations and ingredients of such products.

Lucy Bee does not and shall not purchase any ingredient, formulation, or product from any third-party manufacturer or supplier that conducted, commissioned, or had been party to animal testing on said ingredient, formulation, or product. If a formulation, ingredient, or product is found not to comply with the standard, the company will replace it with an alternative that complies with the standard’s criteria or remove it from the product range."

The company confirmed that its skincare and soap ranges were certified by Leaping Bunny.

This was considered to be a positive policy on animal testing issues, therefore Lucy Bee received Ethical Consumer's best rating for animal testing.
