Before we get into the exciting brands that made it into this years list of the top 3 halal skincare products, you may be wondering, what is the difference between non-certified & halal certified?
Aren’t all skincare products the same?
And how can skincare products be halal or haram?
The easiest way to think about it is to imagine all the different labels that come to mind when thinking of an ethical product; fair trade, cruelty-free, environmentally friendly… all rolled into one supreme label – Halal.
Halal skincare is not just limited to containing ingredients that are Halal but also embodying Islamic principles from production to packaging.
For example, making sure there aren’t any false claims/information on the labels or ensuring the products are hygienically produced amongst many other checks.
All this gives you peace of mind that what you are consuming will not comprise any of the principles you stand for as a Muslim and is of the highest quality possible.
Is vegan the same as halal?
Alcohol is vegan. So in short, no.
Make sure to look out for alcohol in the ingredients or better yet just choose to buy from a Halal certified brand like the ones listed below. This will ensure your salah is accepted and the product on your skin is alcohol-free.
With all that out of the way, who are the beauty brands and which of their products made it into this year’s list?
