    Hello family,

    Is anyone have a futher information about what the ICID (International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary) is?

    One of our customer request the formula not with the INCI names but with ICID names. I can not find any open sources to have them.

    It’s the same thing. INCI names (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) are compiled in a list in the ICID (International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary).  All the chemical names in the ICID are INCI names.
