In February 2020, Ethical Consumer searched Neal's Yard Remedies’ website for details on the company's animal testing policy.

The company stated that "We have never tested on animals, only on willing humans, and never will. We are approved under the Leaping Bunny programme, the globally recognised gold standard of cruelty free assurance."

The Cruelty Free International criteria meant it included all of Neal’s Yard own brand product ranges falling within the remit of the cosmetic certification. Individual brands, ranges or items cannot be certified alone.

Ethical Consumer considered Neal’s Yard to have a positive policy addressing the issue of animal testing.
