Brand Philosophy

What does Halal mean?

Halal is an Arabic word for ‘that which is lawful or permitted’. The word Halal may bring the thought of food to mind, but it is actually a universal tenet that applies to all aspect of life and not just food. If a product is Halal certified, it doesn’t contain alcohol, animal ingredients and harsh chemicals and is not tested on animals, so it gives people the reassurance that it is pure and natural. Halal is for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Muslim or not – Halal is the ultimate stamp of purity and safety guaranteeing superior quality products.

Why should I use Halal Cosmetics?

Halal cosmetics are ethical beauty products rooted in the science of ‘Halal’ and free of impurities such as pig fat, gelatin, keratin and other animal derived ingredients, alcohol and harsh chemicals such as sulfates and parabens commonly found in many popular brands’ products. Halal cosmetics are not merely natural but also pure and hygienically manufactured, vegan and animal cruelty free. Such products are bound to be better for us as well as for our environment.

How long will it take before I see an improvement in my skin?

Skin tends to regenerate naturally in 4-6 weeks and that is about the time it takes to notice improvements in your skin texture and tone. For best results, use Iba products regularly and avoid using any other synthetic/harsh products at the same time.

Are Iba products 100% natural and herbal?

Herbal cosmetics are products containing herbal or medicinal ingredients. However, it does not mean that such products are free from animal derived ingredients, alcohol, or harsh chemicals such as sulfates, parabens, ammonia or bleaching agents.

However, it is always recommended for people with sensitive skin to patch test any new product on a small patch on their forearm before using them more widely.
