Clean… Natural… Organic… While these buzzwords have gained some serious momentum over the past few years, there’s another category to keep your eyes peeled for… Halal-certified. Whenever a beauty brand creates products that align with the Islamic faith, it earns a Halal-certified sticker – which means it’s suitable for Muslims to use. Typically used to deem a food item safe for Muslim consumption, halal is the Arabic term for ‘permissible’ and it extends effortlessly to beauty formulas that are applied to the skin.

Halal-certified products are free from alcohol or animal products such as carmine (derived from cochineal beetles); fat from pigs, cows, and sheep; animal hair, skin, and bones, or beeswax. To qualify as Halal-certified, brands must also ethically source their ingredients, adopt eco-conscious practices, and shouldn’t test on animals. All in all, they’re do-gooders for your skin and the planet. These six seriously bomb halal brands won’t let you down.

1. Mersi Cosmetics

Most nail polishes don’t let water penetrate through them, which can be problematic for Muslims who cleanse certain parts of their body in preparation for prayers, including their nails. That’s why Mersi decided to step in with a breathable polish formula that allows water to pass through it. After a lot of trial and error, they finally launched a collection of halal polish formulas so EVERYONE could enjoy #ManiMondays. To the team, we say, Merci beaucoup!

Founder Claudia Nour wanted to bridge the gap between acne-friendly and halal makeup products. After she found what clicked (peep: minerals), she decided to absorb as much info on makeup formulation before kickstarting her business. She most certainly did a good job. Not only are they halal and wudu-friendly, but they’re also good for acne-prone skin and the environment. Naturally, she sources her ingredients ethically too. #Love.

6. Amara Cosmetics

Since “Halal isn’t limited to what is consumed as food but also applies to what is put on our skin,” Amara Cosmetics wanted to help Muslim women feel beautiful without worrying about what’s inside their products. And they did exactly that by carefully studying Islamic law while curating their inkey list and formulations. The result is a collection of high-quality, long-wear, super pigmented products, all made without any animal-derived substances. With tons of Halal-certified lipsticks, nail polishes, and setting powders to shop, they’re essentially a beauty green-house, IYKWIM.
