Skincare and makeup from the perspective of Muslims
Skincare and makeup have become a popular practice for women from all walks of life. However, not everyone is free to use any skincare or makeup products they find in the market. For example, Muslim women must make sure that they do not commit acts that goes against Islam and take measures to ensure that they abide to ingredient restrictions. In short, the products they use must be halal.
In Arabic, halal refers to what is lawful for the Muslims while Haram signifies what is unlawful for them. For a product to be halal, it should not contain non-permissible ingredients such as alcohol, gelatine, and collagen. Coincidentally, these three ingredients are also key components of many beauty products. Therefore, it is not easy for Muslim women to find products that do not contain any of these prohibited ingredients.
What are halal-certified products?
Halal skincare products contain ingredients that are permissible according to Islamic teachings, which means that there is no use of alcohol, gelatine, keratin and animal based ingredients. In general, people tend to have the misconception that as long as they are not directly consuming these makeup products, it is safe to use them despite containing haram ingredients. However, it is important to note that when you apply lipstick or lip balm, it can be easily swallowed while facial products can penetrate through your skin which is a major cause of concern. Therefore, to effectively avoid any unlawful acts, halal products have become very popular in the cosmetics industry.
