Health and Beauty

Hair coloring, lipsticks, eye shadows, lotions, shampoo, gels, deodorants and baby products can contain ingredients derived from animals. These include different fats, collagen, blood, and blood by-products. Islamic Services of America obtains the list of ingredients from the producer and investigates the source and methods of production. More and more, Muslim consumers are seeking information about ingredients in various products. Health and beauty product manufacturers can benefit from Halal certification, as it assures their customers that prohibited ingredients are not used in their products. This greatly expands the market both domestically and internationally.
