What are Halal Certified Cosmetics
The concept of Halal or what is permitted is rooted in science to ensure -
Purity and cleanliness of the sources from which products are derived and the process by which they are made.
Safety of human lives by consuming only that which is wholesome and healthy
Integrity and ethical way of life by avoiding cruelty to animals, harm to the environment and unfair business practices
In other words, Halal is a way of life that benefits an individual in their physical and spiritual wellbeing.
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.
Animal derived ingredients in cosmetics
Due to advancement in processing technology and to attain cost benefits, many cosmetic products available in the market today are made of ingredients from animal-derived sources:
In addition to above, many commonly used ingredients in cosmetics such as glycerin, waxes and emulsifiers can be derived from non-halal sources such as animal fat or from permitted sources such as vegetable oil or mineral oil. It may not be possible to know the source by reading the label on the product.
Choose halal certified cosmetics to be sure that the products you use are pure, safe and efficacious all at once.
