Halal cosmetics have become the choice for many women, especially muslims. No wonder, because as we all kow, the world’s Muslim population which reaches more than 2 billion people. It certainly becomes a huge potential market for halal products. Halal based products’ demand also increases every year.
What is Halal Cosmetics?
Halal cosmetics are cosmetics that have received halal certification from official institutions in each country, for example in Indonesia there is MUI. To get halal certificates, halal cosmetic products must meet certain standards such as being made from halal ingredients (raw materials, additives), and manufacturing processes (tools, machines, production stages) that do not contain haram elements. The ingredients that are often suspected of containing haram elements in cosmetic products are placenta extract and collagen. This is because these materials may come from materials or animal parts that are categorized as haram in Islam.
Not only from the content, the halalness of cosmetic products must also be seen from the manufacturing process as well. Even though using animal parts that are categorized as halal, these animals must be ensured that they have been processed by Islamic law. Likewise with product testing. If done on animals, cosmetic products are declared halal if the tests are not carried out with the intention of hurting and killing. In Islam, all forms of torture against animals are prohibited. With selective ingredients, safe and painless processes and testing, halal cosmetics certainly have good benefits for the skin and don’t make you feel guilty when using them.
