All Natural Muslim Beauty Options? Halal Yes!

By Sophia Hussain

Muslim women love to be beautiful. They line their eyes with kohl, wear the finest perfumes, are always perfectly manicured…but those who are most devout can face obstacles. What if their cosmetics contain ingredients forbidden by their faith? Some forbidden–or ‘haram’ in Arabic–ingredients commonly found in cosmetics include alcohol, pig-derived collagen or gelatin, or pig derived fat. In fact, it could be argued that Muslim women should use only vegan brands, as their religion demands that they  respect the environment God created, and should never harm or abuse animals for the sake of beauty.

Step in halal (‘permissible’ in Arabic) beauty products. These are cosmetics that are sure not to contain any haram ingredients, and are usually also made by Muslims, and/or halal certified by a religious leader.  What differentiates halal beauty products from mainstream or “organic” brands is that these brands may still contain trace amounts of haram ingredients, and may not necessarily be free from harmful chemicals such as parabens and sulfates.

Fortunately, many halal beauty brands offer fabulous luxe options to enhance beauty regimens – appealing to everyone seeking a healthy and ethical alternative.  Here are highlights of seven innovative European halal beauty brands from Belgium, England, France, The Netherlands, and Turkey, all of which are all free from alcohol, swine-derived components, harmful chemicals, and are not tested on animals.

Halal Natural Muslim Beauty

England

PHB Ethical Beauty was founded in 2012 by Rose Brown, a vegetarian, animal lover, and daughter of Jimmy Brown – 70’s British pop/reggae band UB40.  She discovered that there was a lack of vegan products on the market which prompted her to create PHB, or Pure Health and Beauty.  This Birmingham-based family business offers an extensive range of hand-made, halal certified [by the Halal Cosmetics Standards Agency UK], natural, and vegan-certified beauty products.  There is a unique collection of natural remedies for treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.  Products are housed in minimal recyclable packaging with colour coded labels corresponding to a specific skin type. In 2013, PHB opened additional shops in the Nation of Brunei.

The Halal Cosmetics Company was established in 2013 after Lancashire-based founder and “mumpreneur” Salma Chaudhry was diagnosed with breast cancer [she is now cured].  She discovered that the available skincare products on the market contained carcinogenic ingredients, and were not halal either.  The Halal Cosmetics Company collection contains an innovative ingredient called “astaxanthin” [pronounced asta-zan-thin], which is derived from a microalgae.  Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant which fights cancer-causing free radicals, and acts as a natural sunscreen too.  The skincare collection is housed in chic lucite-white duo hued containers, with an identifying Islamic motif – the crescent and star.  This socially conscious brand also donates proceeds from the sale of their collection to UK-based Macmillian Cancer support.

North America

Amara means  “Eternal beauty, lasting forever, always existing, unfading” in Arabic, and that’s exactly the image wants their customers to have of their halal cosmetics. Modern design, colour palettes and high quality ingredients define this brand, which includes lipsticks, eye shadows, blushers, foundations, nail polishes and all the makeup goods you need make yourself pretty – without any animal ingredients, nasty chemicals or alcohol, of course!

Halal Natural Muslim Beauty

Another brand we love from this continent is Tuesday in Love. Started by a Muslim husband who became sad when his wife grew frustrated at the lack of Islamic beauty brands, he basically started one for her! Famous mainly for their non-toxic, completely breathable and porous halal nail polishes, the label has now branched out into all kinds of animal-and-alcohol-free colour cosmetics, too.

France

Jamal Paris Cosmetique was founded by Chantal Japhet in 2006, who created a luxe line of skincare and mineral-based cosmetics.  “Jamal” means “beauty” in Arabic.  Natural ingredients found in the Jamal Paris collection includes: sunflower oil, aloe vera, and rose water.  An innovative ingredient in the skincare line, called “biowhite” complex, is a plant-based combination designed to promote even skin tone, and provides anti-aging benefits.  Jamal Paris is scripted in an elegant arabesque text, where the skincare collection is housed in miminal white packaging with a delicate floral motif, and the mineral cosmetics range is housed in chic high-gloss black lacquer packaging. The brand is also halal-certified by the Grande Mosquee de Paris.

Halal Natural Muslim Beauty

Turkey

Mihri Istanbul is a luxury skincare line launched in 2012 by Istanbul-based Deren Chemicals, which has an over 28-year history in Turkey.  Mihri, which means “sun” in Turkish, created a brilliant collection of natural origin-derived exotic ingredients including: calendula flower, carob tree, red seaweed, and decaffeinated green bean extracts.

This collection of innovative cosmetics includes: an anti-cellulite lotion, anti-wrinkle creams, a body hair inhibitor lotion, and an anti-hair loss serum.  The Mihri line is housed in luxurious gold, black and white packaging, adorned with an arabesque “sun” motif. Mihri is halal-certified by the GIMDES Halal Products Research Institute of Turkey, and there are exciting plans to launch the collection in France in 2014.

Halal Natural Muslim Beauty

Poland

Whilst Poland has only a teeny weeny Muslim population, this is the land where one of the most popular Muslim beauty products comes from: Inglot.

With prayers five times a day and a pre-prayer ritual that requires washing the hands and arms, traditional fingernail polish has been mostly off limits for Muslim women because it prevents water from making contact with the nails. But Inglot’s revolutionary  ‘breathable’ nail polish  solves that problem.

The polish is the first to let air and moisture pass through to the nail, and thanks to its permeability, it complies with Muslim law – and did I mention it comes in a whole rainbow of amazing shades?

    You should definitely give Sea Of Herbs a try… beauty and cosmetic products for the entire family. Based out of Jerusalem, it is a brand that has been developed over a century by a Palestinian family whom for generations has worked in the field of spice, herbal remedies and such.

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
