In March 2020 Ethical Consumer received a completed questionnaire from Organii Ltd, which contained a question on the company's policy on animal testing. The company provided the following statement:

"ORGANii does not, and has never, tested on animals (as covered in the organic certifications for each product)."

While this was considered positive the company did not provide a fixed cut-off date after which no new ingredients would have been tested on animals. As such it received Ethical Consumer's middle rating for Animal Testing and lost half a mark under this category.

In March 2020, Ethical Consumer viewed the Pravera website, which stated that none of its products were tested on animals.

As the company operated in a sector where animal testing is common and has a policy of not testing products or ingredients on animals, and of not commissioning such tests but did not have a fixed cut-off date (i.e. a specific date set by the company after which it will not use any new ingredients tested on animals), it received Ethical Consumer's middle rating for animal testing and lost half a mark under the Animal Testing category.
