While Muslim women maintain a sense of modesty, that doesn’t mean we don’t love to be beautiful! From styling our hair, to trying out new makeup tutorials on YouTube, to treating our bodies with the best products for soft, smooth skin.
Beauty is as big a part of a Muslimah’s life as any other woman.
The difference, however, is that we have more obstacles when it comes to purchasing our personal care products. Many cosmetics and other beauty products contain haram ingredients, such as alcohol, pig-derived collagen or gelatin, and pig-derived fat. Even some “organic” products may still contain trace amounts of haram ingredients.
It can be argued that Muslim women should only be using vegan products, as it is not permissible to harm and animal for the sake of beauty, or for any other reason than necessity. However, although most vegan products are safe for use, some may still contain alcohol so always be sure to check the ingredients.
Further, many mainstream personal care products contain harmful chemicals and toxins. While these many not directly fall under any haram ingredients, like pig, blood, or alcohol, harming your body with chemicals is not permissible in Islam.
Fortunately for us, there are many options for halal products aimed at enhancing and embracing our beauty while remaining true to our faith and values.
I’ve come up with as many products as I could and I’ve tried to find companies in different places of the world. All of these products are halal, vegan, all-natural, and cruelty free.
Note that although these companies are organized by location most, if not all, ship internationally.
I will be updating this directory as often as I can so be sure to save it in your bookmarks!
