Halal means ‘permissible’ in Islamic law. It is a way of living chosen by the believers of the Muslim community. The true believers are seen to consume consciously and sensibly. Islamic law considers the consumption of alcohol, certain animals, and blood haram. Any products made with these are considered haram too. Here is everything you need to know about Halal Beauty products in a nutshell.
Before we start let us see what ‘halal beauty products’ implies. The cosmetics or skin care products like Muslim lipstick or Muslim nail polish that contain halal ingredients are considered as halal beauty products. These products must not use alcohol, animal by-products or any kind of harmful ingredients in any phase of their preparation or manufacturing.
Some products claim to be halal without the accreditation of certification bodies. There are Halal governing bodies that give Halal certificates to cosmetic and personal care products. Certificates prove the authenticity of the claims made by the brands. Most of the countries have their own governing bodies to do the same.
This is one significant point to look upon. The products that claim to be halal shouldn’t have the presence of alcohol, pork or pork derived ingredients or carmine in any way. But sometimes the problem with skin care products is that although the product might not have direct involvement of the above-mentioned haram ingredients, the by-products can be made from the combination of them. For this reason, everyone should observe the ingredients keenly and should turn down the product in case you find the presence of keratin, oleic acid, lanolin alcohol, gelatin, collagen, estrogen etc.
Halal beauty products help Muslim women to enjoy the luxury of makeup without compromising their values and beliefs. Also, halal products are cruelty-free, skin-friendly, safe and are made with organic and natural ingredients. It is moisturizing to the skin and can be worn even during the prayers.
