In May 2021 Ethical Consumer viewed the Astonish website and found the following FAQ in relation to animal testing:

"We don’t test our products on animals or use animal ingredients. We’re proud to be approved by Cruelty Free International and the Vegan Society".

This statement below was no longer found through its website but was found by an internet search:

"We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited." The company confirmed in a questionnaire response that it operated a fixed cut-off date.

Overall, the company received Ethical Consumer’s best rating for its animal testing policy and was not marked down in this category.
