The Halal market has grown exponentially in the last few years and is on its way to becoming mainstream in the beauty world, if not already. Once confused as only for those who practiced Islam, Halal makeup and skincare is actually for everyone, no matter their religion because people are caring a hell of a lot about the ingredients that go into their beauty products.
What is Halal beauty though? Halal is the Arabic word that means permissible. The beauty or skincare products that only contain ingredients that are acceptable to Islamic Law. This includes the packaging as well. The Halal beauty products are almost compatible to vegan, guilt-free and cruelty-free cosmetics.
