Lately, we can see more and more personal care products with the word Halal stamped across. ‘Halal’ is the latest trend in the cosmetics industry. Many new brands offering Halal make-up have cropped up and many reputable brands have introduced their own Halal beauty line. The Halal cosmetics have it all covered, from wudhu (ablution) friendly nail polishes to alcohol-free deodorants.
What is so special about Halal? What does it entail? So what’s all the hype about?
There are some ingredients commonly present in beauty and personal care products that are not permissible according to Islamic law (shariah), hence a large body of Muslims are unable to use them. Put into simple terms, Halal means permissible. A Halal product means that it is harmless and free from objects that are deemed impure (najis) by Islamic law. Products have been put together keeping Muslim consumers in mind with Halal ingredients. A Halal product is free from;
- The meat of animals slaughtered in an un-Islamic way
- Toxic and harmful substances
- The meat of impermissible animals
The majority of the renowned cosmetic companies have originated in the west and are owned and operated by non-Muslims. They have their own standards of quality. Muslims on the other hand, have a different set of standards that revealed to them from above seven heavens. Unfortunately, these standards were largely ignored in the past due to various reasons.
The Muslim market is huge, them being 24.1% of the entire population of 1.8 billion according to a study in 2015. However, the importance of this growing market has been realized and a huge number of brands are catering to the needs of Muslims by offering Halal products.
Moreover, Halal products are trending because:
Halal Products Guarantee the best of both Worlds
Muslims take great pride in keeping well-groomed, clean and tidy, at the same time being conscious about their faith. Halal products provide a great solution to their personal care and beauty regimes while not becoming a hindrance while praying to the Almighty. So now, they can experience the best of both worlds and stay sophisticated yet faithful.
In the past, Muslim women had to wash off their make-up before every ablution and as they couldn’t use products with impure ingredients. Halal certified brands come as a relief for Muslims. Now that they can use products and observe their religious obligations at the same time; isn’t that best of both the worlds?
It is Safe, Healthy and Wholesome
Halal beauty and personal care products are popular because they are superior in quality, safer and healthier. Apart from being produced according to Islamic guidelines the products are vegan-free, environment-friendly and cruelty-free as well. That’s the best a product can be!
Halal isn’t just for the Muslims. Many non-Muslims prefer Halal products as well. And that’s because it isn’t just an Arabic label. It is a certification that the products you are buying have been produced in the best and safest way, using only the finest and purest ingredients.
Because YOU are more Aware
You needed it that way and that’s why it is trending!
Muslims are more aware of their religious requirements and do not want to buy cosmetics and personal care products that contain haram ingredients. That’s where Halal comes in! Furthermore, the present generation is aware of what they buy and where these products come from. They want their products to be more natural, healthy and safe.
