The meaning of the Arabic word ‘halal’, in English, is permissible or lawful. For Muslims, it is a religious obligation to ensure that whatever they use, consume or wear is halal and free from ‘haram’ – or forbidden – substances.
When it comes to beauty goods, it’s quite common to find products manufactured with forbidden ingredients such as alcohol and pig-derived fat, gelatin or collagen. In addition to this, Muslim’s are required to respect and love all of the Almighty’s creations, making it haram to hurt or harm animals for the sake of beauty. Simply put, that means halal products are also cruelty-free!
