The term ‘Halal’ translates to ‘permissibility’. It is used in the Islamic context to define permissibility of certain practices and ingredients. These ingredients include alcohol, pork and blood, which are considered to be ‘Haram’ (forbidden) and unworthy of application. So what is Halal Makeup? This is simply any skincare or makeup related products that do not contain any “Haram” ingredients such as pork or alcohol. Halal cosmetics can range from a variety of products.
