What is Halal-Friendly beauty?
Last year, we wrote a blog post to outline the importance of using Halal-Friendly beauty products in accordance to Islam. Here we discussed what is halal beauty, and which features in skincare products make a product Halal-Friendly, and which ingredients are prohibited under Islamic law.
To recap, halal beauty products must not contain ingredients of animal origin, alcohol or other ingredients considered as unclean in Islam. As well as these, beauty products need to be cruelty-free, and the cleanliness of the sources from which products are derived and the process in which they are made is of upmost importance. Halal-Friendly beauty products can be used by anyone, and don’t exclusively need to be used by only Muslims. Halal beauty products are also suitable for Vegans, or for anyone who simply wants to use gentle alcohol free and Cruelty-free products in everyday life.
