active ingredient
Explanation:
I think it means that the tests were carried out using a product that had 3% active ingredient. For example:

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Ingredients | LIVESTRONG.COM
https://www.livestrong.com › Fashion, Style and Personal Care
Jul 18, 2017 - The active ingredient in Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is dimethicone at a concentration of 1.3 percent. Dimethicone is permitted by the FDA as an active ingredient for skin protectant products within a concentration of 1 to 30 percent. Dimethicone is an emollient, or skin moisturizer

In addition, the percentage and exact function of each active ingredient must be approved by the FDA. Products in this category are referred to as "over-the-counter" or "cosmetics that are also drugs"; the portion of an ingredient list with the active ingredients is referred to as the "Drug Facts" label.
