In February 2020 Ethical Consumer sent Bentley Organics Ltd a questionnaire, requesting information about the company’s animal testing policy. No response was received. Ethical Consumer therefore searched the company’s website in March 2020 for publicly available information.

The FAQ section of the website stated: ‘‘We do not test any of our end products on animals. We also make sure none of the ingredients we use are tested on animals’. Although Ethical Consumer considered this to be a positive animal testing policy, as no fixed cut off date was provided, the company received a middle rating for its Animal Testing policy and lost half a mark in this category.

Ethical Consumer searched Bentley Organics website in March 2020 for information about its products. All Bentley Organic products were said to be suitable for vegetarians and most of the products were registered with the Vegan Society. However, some products contained beeswax or honey.

As a result the company lost half a mark under the Animal Rights category.
