    Could you please help me with the next question: how to check whether the ingredient has an animal tests ? and can be used in some kind of non-animal test certification (yes. of course I understand all the bottoms but its a request of my employer).

    As I see it should be some systems where you can put CAS or INCI and to see all information about tests. I found in some articles about CAMSEC database, but didnt find any information about it.

    Hope you can help me. Thank you.

    P.S. if you know some 3d party organizations that could make the ingredients check please recommend me. Thank you.

    your only option is to ask the supplier of the raw material for certification about animal testing. other than that at leas in europe i don’t know of any database wear you can see for all suppliers of raw materials if they tested on animals or not. And as far as i know, it is always not regarding the total of all suppliers it is always specific to one supplier you are getting the raw material from.

    Yes, the only thing you can do is contact the manufacturer of the ingredient and request a Cruelty-Free certificate or declaration that the ingredient has not been tested on animals. Animal testing has been banned in Europe for quite some time now. It is still allowed in the US, but rarely practiced. I just finished this exercise myself on behalf of a client.
