Is Corsodyl an ethical toothpaste brand? 

Corsodyl is a brand of toothpaste which specialises in protecting healthy gums.

Unfortunately, within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Toothpaste Sector Corsodyl receives a below-benchmark score. Because of its low score, Corsodyl does not yet meet our minimum benchmark and cannot yet be classed as an ethical toothpaste brand.

Although it does not quite reach our minimum benchmark, we still encourage Corsodyl to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. By submitting an application, Corsodyl would enable The Good Shopping Guide to offer it an assessment and some suggestions on how to work on its bottom scores.

What categories does Corsodyl have a top rating for?

As it has a lack of negative records, Corsodyl has a top rating in our categories of Armaments and Nuclear Power.

Why does Corsodyl receive a bottom rating for our Animal Welfare category?

Unfortunately GSK, Corsodyl’s parent company, still tests on animals. Within its Public Policy Positions statement GSK says that ‘Animal studies represent a small but vital part’ of its research.

We hope that in the future that GSK will work on its low score for our Animal Welfare category.

What can Corsodyl do to improve its score? 

Corsodyl’s below benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Toothpaste Sector is the outcome of a calculation of multiple ethical criteria.

As it has a low score in the Ethical Toothpaste Sector we suggest that Corsodyl get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. Once we receive its application, The Good Shopping Guide will give Corsodyl some advice on how to work on its bottom scores.
