Makeup allows for plenty of self-expression. Sometimes, it’s not just how it looks on your face that matters but what you decide to put on. Currently, there are lots of options in the cosmetics industry. This allows women to choose what best suits their beauty philosophy. Yet the concept of halal beauty is less frequently talked about.
What is halal beauty?
A common misconception about halal beauty is that it’s simply natural or vegan. Halal beauty is more distinctive in that its composition and production must adhere to the tenets of Islamic law. That means no alcohol, no genetically modified organisms, and no ingredients derived from animals. This is so because halal is believed to not only affect what Muslims should eat but also what cosmetics they wear (in part because lipstick, for example, gets ingested when you lick your lips or eat). Curious? Here are some of the brands to know if you’re interested in checking out halal-certified products.
