In February 2020 Ethical Consumer sent Caurnie Soap Co a questionnaire, requesting information about its animal testing policies and practices. No response was received. Ethical Consumer therefore searched the company’s website,, in March 2020 for publicly available information.

The website stated ‘Caurnie uses plants we grow not animal tested’.

The Naturewatch website listed Caurnie as being an endorsed company which meant that they had a fixed cut off date animal testing policy.

The company received Ethical Consumer's best rating for its animal testing policy.
