Halal Beauty, Defined

More than just a beauty trend.

A common misconception about the definition of Halal is that the product, be it food or makeup, doesn’t contain pork or ingredients made from pork. But that’s only one facet of it.

The Arabic word ‘Halal’ (also spelled halaal) translates to ‘permissible’, or ‘lawful’ in English. It contrasts with ‘haram’, which means forbidden. These are universal terms that go beyond food products; it’s a fundamental way of living. It connotes a life of integrity, restraint, and cleanliness for Muslims. That’s why Muslims are obliged to scrutinise the products they use everyday to make sure they’re Halal. So it’s less about what prohibited in a product but how we treat the environment we’re in.
