Popular Beauty Brands Fail Ethics Test, Ethical Consumer Magazine Says

May 8, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Popular and leading beauty brands have failed a corporate ethics analysis by the Ethical Consumer magazine. Focused on workers' rights, environmental policies, and animal testing, the test revealed that even brands perceived by consumers as ethical were actually guilty by association with their parent companies. Some brands sold by retailer Boots were rated poor because parent company Walgreens Boots Alliance does not require suppliers to ban animal testing. LVMH's beauty brand Benefit got a terrible score of 1.5 points out of 20 for its parent company's refusal to join the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
