How to Choose Halal Cosmetics ?

How do we Know which Make up are halal and which are not ?

Assalamu Alaikum,

I Have a News ! Most of us are Contaminating ourselves with Cosmetics which can Invalidates our Salah. Our Everyday body care products, Make up Products and toiletries such as shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, body creams, may contain animal byproducts (which might include pig.

Shocked ! I too was Shocked and Upset about this Discovery. Although I was aware of the talk about some Lipsticks containing Pigs fats and took great care in Choosing A Lipstick free from Animal Fats. I brought Myself a red Lipstick few days back which claimed Itself to be fat free. While I was checking the Ingredient List I saw an Ingredient called” Caramine” .I researched about this  Ingredient and was shocked to learn that My Red Lipstick actually got Its Pigmentation from Insects. And as all Insects except Locusts are Haram in Islam. My Lipstick was haram too. I felt like filth and began my research on Other Body Products and Cosmetic Brands. And Here is What I found:-

Halal doesn’t limits Itself to food. As We all Know that Muslims are Forbidden to have Contact with Pork Products. Using the beauty products currently available on the market means consumers are potentially contaminating themselves with Haram ingredients in these products.

halal Cosmetics

Sahih International: He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit] – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.(16:115)

The above verses of the Holy Qur’an are sufficient to satisfy a Muslim as to why pork is forbidden. According to the mufti at the official fatwa call center of the UAE in Abu Dhabi, pork products in any state are “absolutely haram”. “Everything from the pig is rejected,” he said .”We can’t eat it, buy it, sell it, wear the leather or even touch the animal. It is nejes [dirty or impure] and we can’t use it on our body, a person will then not be in a state of purity fit to pray.”

How do forbidden ingredients become a part of our beauty products?

Protein waste and animal by-products are recycled through a process called rendering. Only about 50% of a cow, 60% of a pig, 72% of a chicken, and 78% of a turkey actually end up in the supermarket. Renderers convert these materials into valuable commodities that are used to manufacture skin care and cosmetics.

Well,Actually you will be shocked to know that In 1990, the National Health and Medical Research Council in Canberra, Australia, asserted the average woman could expect to swallow between 500 and 1,500 grams of lipstick in her lifetime if she was a modest but regular user.(ref)

Tips To Choose Halal Cosmetics /Make up

We are Listing some tips to Choose Halal cosmetics . There may be more but We are going with the most common found Ingredients and Popular brands.

  1. Check the Label If it is Animal Fat free or Not.
  2. Check the Ingredient list:If it Contains CARMINE OR COCHINEAL,It is haram.
    • Carmine/CI 75470 (colour) is derived from Cochineal (from beetles).
    • red color from Cochineal or Carmine is Haram because all insects are Haram in Islam except locust.
  3. Check For these Potentially Questionable Ingredients:
    • Oleic Acid  Which is found in Moisturizers, and cosmetics. Oleic Acid is derived from animal matter (beef or pork)
    • Keratin is found in Moisturizers(Hydrolyzed Keratin – derived from Keratin (from cashmere goat or sheep wool).)
    • Lanolin Alcohol is derived from animal matter
    • Palmitic Acid is found in Moisturizers, Masques and cosmetics
    • Gelatin is found in Moisturizers, cosmetics. Only fish gelatin is Halal. If you run a DNA analysis (nowadays it is used to detect pig by-products in a food product developed by a Florida company ) of Type A gelatin (pig) and Pig, you will find no difference.
    • Stearic Acid/Stearyl Alcohol is found in Moisturizers, cleansers, Exfoliator, Toners, Masque, and after shave(Halal if Obtained from vegetable fat. Haram if obtained from pork fat.)
    • Glycerin/glycerol is found in Moisturizers, cleansers after shave. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then it will be Haram.
  4. Regarding Alcohol in Cosmetics: Stearyl alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol and Cetyl alcohol are emulsifiers, meaning they help the oily ingredients in the formulation dissolve in the water phase to give the cream a smooth consistency. They tend to be white, waxy solids and are known as fatty alcohols, which occur naturally in some plants and animals. These could be Halal, even though the name suggests otherwise, because if ingested, they are not intoxicating. Cetyl Alcohol for example is a hard wax obtained usually from palm oil. However, there is no way of knowing if they are originally derived from animals or vegetables and thus a well recognized third party Muslim approval is of great importance.

About the Halal Cosmetics

Until recently, Halal was only associated with food.With rising awareness and transparency, the focus is moving towards making more offerings Halal, including financial and beauty products. Since no fully Shariah compliant Halal Beauty Company is there in the market , consumers are potentially contaminating themselves with the questionable ingredients in these products. Unfortunately there is No worldwide consensus or single standard on recognition of single certification as Halal and no proper information or transparency in terms of production facilities and ingredient sourcing

At a time when many other large consumer segments are reaching a saturation point, Muslims are a new outlet from which to build a base for future growth. There are an estimated 1.82 Billion Muslims worldwide that constitute 20% of world population. Islam has no geographic boundary and is a religion and a culture , lives differently in various areas of the world. However , Muslims share the concept of Sharia which is a framework for religious, political, social, private and domestic life. Halal is any action or object that is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. Muslims are forbidden to have any contact with pork products.

Halal Certified :

A Product is “Halal Certified” When The Islamic authority (Imam) inspects the production facilities and factories to make sure there are no haram products or alcohol (including fluids used to clean the equipment) used in the manufacturing process. To be certified halal, halal certifying organizations  must be able to track down the source of every ingredient  of the product to ensure that it was created according to Sharia Law — the system that governs members of the Islamic faith. Samples of each product are also sent to an independent lab contracted by U.S. Halal Certification to test for traces of pork or pork byproducts before certification is issued. Testing is done on the individual products and ingredients to make sure there are no pork or animal bi-products-it is a time intensive process and may take months.  And finally the certificate is issued-for each and every product-if all requirements are met to become Certified Halal.

   Halal Make up  Brands

People are becoming conscious and aware of Halal and Haram  and what’s in their skin care and makeup, which translates to their willingness to spend more on high-quality halal products.

Some Halal Cosmetics Brand are : Iba  ,Inika, Inglot (nailpolishes),Clara Cosmetics, and Amara ,Shehnaz hebal ,, Claudia Nour

There may be other different brands of halal cosmetics too.My advice to all my Muslim friends is to choose a brand that qualifies halal certification and only use the halal products. And if this is not possible then One golden rule which you can apply in choosing your Cosmetics is to avoid the Cosmetics made with animal products and use herbal/vegan cosmetics which do not contain the Above listed haram Ingredients.

I hope you can make time to answer my question, thank you, i really appreciate it.

  18. Assalamu Alaikum ,

    Please forgive me as these days I am not able to research into all the products .I am strictly busy in my studies these days .If you are unsure about certain product the best way out is to message the company through their facebook or (contact us ) section.Mention the exact product you want to enquire about .If they respond in positive go ahead if they don’t response at all the product is doubtful.

    Please sisters do your own research . Multiple products of same company may vary in ingredients used and only they can tell us if they haven’t used any haram ingredients.

    Unfortunately we live in such society where there are not enough halal certified brands .May Allah save us from consuming and using haram.

    Jazak Allah khair for understanding.

  23. AS Afia,

    Thank you for such a detailed piece of beauty literature. Often we mistakenly don’t understand how skincare and makeup can have such detrimental affects on us muslimahs. It’s great to find articles that show some transparency on the beauty industry. Muslim or not, I don’t think anyone wants to rub animal fats on their skin.

    I am a health and wellness coach for a skincare brand, Arboone. I am a District Manager with the company. If you haven’t heard of them, their products are
    – chemical free
    – animal fat free
    – alcohol free
    – mineral oil free
    – 100%vegan certified
    – 100% kosher certified
    – botanically based backed by the best science
    – Swiss founder company

    They are sold worldwide and very popular amongst the muslim community. There is a range to suit all skin types and the products give remarkable results.

    I happen to stumble across your website as I am in the middle of preparing a presentation for a workshop for 20 Mulsim women about the dangers of the beauty industry. So, thank you. I’ve hyperlinked this page 🙂

    I’m also on facebook and Instagram: Saima Haq, Beautiful Inside and Out

    I hope my answer helps clear your confusion . Jazak Allah khair .

  29. Assalamu Alaikum Afia.,
    I’m too from India. Last year, I bought Iba Lipsticks and everything was fine. It had the word ‘halal’ in its brand name, it was Halal certified and I was happy. It was like a break-through from haram! However, quite recently, I started my own little research on the cosmetics I was using. I didn’t care to double-check Iba, I trusted it! I wanted to know the ingredients used in the product I used. Lakme didn’t have any ingredients mentioned, it wasn’t even on their website. As I was surfing the web, I even went through the Iba Halal Care website. It was then I realised that Iba too didn’t mention its ingredients. Just ‘Key Ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera’ doesn’t suffice for it to become Halal, no chemical names and many ingredients were hidden.I felt like being cheated! Tell me your views on this.
    Please reply to my email.

    Some Oil of Olay products are halal. If you are ever unsure, read the ingredients. Also they have an 800 number on all the products and they are very efficient and helpful in addressing any concerns. You can just ask them if any particular item has alcohol or animal products. I use Olay ultra moisture shea butter body wash in the shower, which contains no animal products or alcohol. It was recommended by my doctor for helping with dry skin. I hope this is helpful.

Since different products(even the different shades)are made of different ingredients ,only the company can tell you if it is suitable for you.
    Take care sisters.And thank you for writing.

  66. MAC says that it doesn’t contains ingredients derived from Pig .You need to check for “Carmine” in the lipsticks . Some of it contain Caramine
    We talked to them and found that their lipstick do contain carmine,especially the red shades . So,If you avoid the red shades , some of them may be safer .

    Again, I would say ,If you want to be Very sure buy the cosmetics which are labelled halal or write to the company with the product you intend to use because a brand has many products and all of them may have different ingredients .

    Jazak Allah Khair.

    These companies are not halal certified in itself because halal certification is carried out by a halal certifying body but if you think the cosmetics you are using doesn’t contain any ingredient that is haram,you may use it.JazakAllah khair.

  91. Most of the comestic products say glycerin or glycerine so how do I know if this ingredient extract from animal fats or vegetables fats?

  92. Assalamu alaikum @binte. Thank you for writing to us.The answer is I do not know. Actually I have not tried those brands and I do not know of its ingredients .Morever after I have learned about the certified halal brands and their certification process , I think that it is more safe to rely on the halal brands rather than analyse it from our own limited knowledge .yes,some companies clearly states that they use pig but the ones that dont ,remember that halal certification is a month long process where the body investigates many factors which only the manufacturer know.

    So,I cannot misguide the readers stating so and so halal certified cosmetics is halal instead we should try to use things that are already certified halal or We can request our favourite brand to go for halal certification .

  93. Someone has asked me for the verification of few brands n it’s urgent. Please reply as soon as possible. These are:
    Anastasia, Bobbi Brown, Burberry, Clinique, Diana of London, Dior, DMGM, Elf, Estee Lauder, L.A Girl, Lancome, The Balm Cosmetics, Urban Decay, Wet n Wild. Please do let me know about their halaal verification please.Jazakillah.

  94. Asak..
    Will you please let us know about Lakme products of India….are they halal or not..

    JazakAllah khairan

  95. Assalamoalaikum.

    This is what The Body Shop website says:
    “All other ingredients with the word ‘Alcohol’ in their names are not used in the alcoholic beverages for the purposes of intoxication, have significantly different chemical structures to Ethyl Alcohol and are well established cosmetic ingredients that are fully compliant with Halal requirements.”

    Does this make the products halal?

  96. Yes it is difficult . That is why there are halal cosmetics which is verified by Organisations responsible for delivering halal products for customers. All Others are doubtful and we can not say much about them with confirmation.

  97. How can we get to know that the ingredients used in cosmetic and body products are free from animal fat and non-alcoholic as the ingredients’ origin are not mentioned there with the ingredients?

  98. Assalamu alikum.

    Saima ,Body Shops do not have the halal certification but in their website they say that
    “We will continuously review and update our ethical criteria and guidelines for the development and manufacture of our products, which includes those covering raw materials, derived from non-porcine animal by-products, and will implement action plans for the timely and realistic phase-out of relevant materials from our formulations, as appropriate to maintain the appropriate ethical standards.”

    Just check the ingredients carefully .I cannot say if it is absolutely halal or not . Hope it gets the halal certification for us to be sure.

  99. Assalamu Alaikum, Here is the reply We got from NYX-

    We do not have prepared information on the ingredient information you requested. However, all the ingredients we use in a product are listed on the package or the label of the product itself. For products too small to accommodate the list, a separate ingredient list is available on the display unit in the store for your convenience. Since some ingredients are known by more than one name, we use the standard industry FDA-recognized names.

    Cosmetic and personal care products may contain ingredients derived from animal sources such as lanolin and honey. Our products do not contain ingredients derived from bovine (beef) or porcine (pork) sources; we may use ingredients derived from fish and insects.

    Nyx is not “Halal Certified” and it is doubtful in my opinion.

  100. Yes,they may be a little more priced but do you know that the halal certification process takes months and comes with a hefty fee. Membership with U.S. Halal Certification costs almost $2,000, depending on the number of items to be certified .And then they have to pay for the organization’s copyright and trademarks if you intend to use the logos. Every couple of years, the halal certifying organization also conducts an independent audit and requires each halal-certified company to notify it of any changes in product ingredients.

    Atleast they are giving us high quality Products which I am thankful for .And they are sometimes cheap than other big non halal brands too.

  101. Really disappointed to see the ridiculously high prices of Halal cosmetics .. How many Muslim sisters can actually afford a lipstick worth $50 that too compared to $5 on any average brand like Revelon cover girl or even Rimmel .. This is rather discouraging .. These halal brands should be educated about halal earning first

  102. Asalaamu waalaykum
    From the above it means tressemme does not contain pig by products. Am i right?

  103. Thank you for asking this question.
    Actually ,Lanolin is Halal because it is obtained from fat of the sheep’s wool without slaughtering the sheep. and Lanolin Alcohol is a sheep’s wool wax.Both are considered to be Halal.Earlier it was under the category of Potentially Questionable Ingredient(as stated in the article ) and even now some consider it doubtful..

  104. “Lanolin and honey are halal. Insects and fish sources are also halal. So, I think that it is safe to Use them.” Using insects are also haram .right or wrong?

  105. Nyx has no halal certification.When We Inquired about their Products,they asked us to check the Individual Product labels If It contains a Potentially haram Ingredient .

    Most of our products are but a few do have animal derived ingredients and/or could contain gluten. It is best for the customer to view the labels of each product in-person and determine if there is any ingredient that could be derived from animals and/or contains gluten.

    glycerin as we have read in the post is halal if derieved from vegetable source. But When Nyx as asked about the source of the glycerin,this was their reply-

    “We do not have sourcing information for the individual ingredients unfortunately. But if you have any hesitations at all about a product’s ingredients it is best to refrain from using it.

    Jzk Khair.

  106. We contacted Maybelline to Know If their Products are Halal .

    Maybelline is not Halal certified but they wrote to Us that they do not contain ingredients derived from bovine (beef) or porcine (pork) sources although they do use ingredients derived from fish and insects.This is the feedback-

    “Cosmetic and personal care products may contain ingredients derived from animal sources such as lanolin and honey. Our products do not contain ingredients derived from bovine (beef) or porcine (pork) sources; we may use ingredients derived from fish and insects. A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.”

    edit : Lanolin and honey are halal. Fish sources are also halal. So, I think that it is safe to Use them.Please check for ingredient like caramine/cochineal which is derieved from insects.

  107. Assalamu alaikum… the Maybelline lipstick and foundation contain pig fat or is it harm product…?

  108. thank you sooo much for these helpful tips. can u please suggest a halal beauty anti aging cream which will make skin bright and spotless.
