In today's diverse beauty market, we often find ourselves seeking skincare products that align with our religious beliefs and ethical values. Halal Skincare is one of the example, as it is something we use everyday, we surely need to know whether its ingredients are safe or not and corresponding with our value.
Here's a few way to know if a Skincare line is halal or not:
1. Check the Ingredients List
Look over the ingredients list on the product's package or the company's website carefully. Halal skincare products stay away from elements that are haram (forbidden) in Muslim or ingredients obtained from animals that aren't killed in accordance with Islamic dietary requirements. Alcohol (unless denatured), components derived from pig, and some animal products are examples of common haram items to avoid. Any components made from the human body, for instance, stem cells that is a current trend.
2. Research the Brand's Ethical Practices
Not only the ingredients, the way they handle/produce the skincare is also important! Choose companies that emphasize on ethical testing practices, environmentally friendly production practices, and sustainable sourcing. We can gain a more comprehensive understanding of a brand's compatibility with our values by evaluating their practices.
3. Seek Guidance from Beauty Communities and Resources:
Connect with beauty communities and resources, both online and offline, that can help us in reviewing skincare's ingredients and production practices. These communities can provide valuable insights, product recommendations, and share their experiences with various brands and products. Engaging with beauty community can help us navigate the skincare market and discover new skincare gems. Lady K Korea provides a community to do so! KSisters provide a welcoming and warm community to discuss any beauty-related matter.
Doing all those things might sounds like it takes too much time and work just to identify whether that skincare is Halal or not, which is why the fourth way is the most efficient and fastest way to know.
4. Look for Halal Certification:
One of the most reliable ways to identify halal skincare products is to look for a halal certification seal or logo on the packaging. Certifying organizations, such as recognized halal certification organizations, ensure that products meet halal standards. Research and familiarize yourself with reputable halal certification organizations in your own country and look for their certification mark when shopping for skincare products.
To reduce so much work and difficulty, Lady K Korea's upcoming skincare line, LSoulle, will have a Halal Certificate to ensure LSoulle is align with Muslim beliefs and ethical values.
