WHY HALAL MAKE-UP?
Most cosmetic brands use Haram ingredients, such as pork grease, alcohol or insects in their products.
It is not only disgusting to apply such products on our skin, but as a muslim, it can also have important consequences. As a matter of fact, one risks swallowing a bit of these products (with lipsticks, for example), and by doing this consuming haram ingredients.
Also, having illicit substances on us is a cause to invalidate prayers.
KHADIJA has developped a 100% Halal product range, certified by the Halal Authority Board, a world-wide known reference of Halal certification.
After years of research, our formula use only the most PREMIUM ingredients to offer the HIGHEST QUALITY make-up that enhances ALL BEAUTIES.
HOW TO IDENTIFY HARAM INGREDIENTS?
It is not easy to identify Haram ingredients, because they are usually coded with technical and complicated names.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of Haram ingredients that you can find in most cosmetics:
– Pork grease and other animal grease: the following ingredients can contain animal grease (most commonly pork): glycerine, retinol, kératine, collagen, elsatin, gelatin, stearate, Hyaluronic acid, … Usually found in foundations, skin care, hair care or nail care products
– Insects: hidden inder names like CI 75470 / Carmine / Natural Red 4 / Crimson Lake / … Mainly found in lipsticks, gloss, and many other colour cosmetics
– Haram Alcohol: known as Alcohol Denat, Ethanol, Isopropyl Alcohol… Found in mascaras, skin care, foundations, fragrances, …
WHAT IF I FIND NO HARAM INGREDIENT, DOES THIS MEAN THE PRODUCT IS HALAL?
Maybe, but you cannot be sure. During the production, cosmetics can be in contact with Haram ingredients that will contaminate the product without appearing in the ingredient list.
