This may shock you but nearly all cosmetic products, such as skin creams, contain animal residues, including those of pigs.
This would immediately render them Haraam for the Muslims and non-Kosher for the Jewish.

This shocking revelation has only come to light recently and the cosmetics industry seems reluctant to address this issue. Animals by-products such as urine, gelatine, fats and acids are a staple ingredient for cosmetic products in modern times which would explain why the industry is hesitant to stop using them.

There are exceptions to the rule however as many new start up companies are bucking the trend and beginning to produce cosmetic creams without use of animal, specifically pig, ingredients. One such company is LuLu London Ltd., a premium brand start up from London England.

LuLu London's current product uses ingredients from the Black Pearls of Tahiti rather than animal residues. This innovative use of pearls creates a skin cream which is comparatively expensive to produce but is completely in line with Halal and Kosher standards. Effectively, it's a premium brand skin cream which can battle with the best whilst remaining animal-free.

And groups such as PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) approve of these new methods rather than the traditional trend of "slaughterhouses disposing of their animal by-products by selling them to cosmetics manufacturers".

So now that some manufacturers are beginning to produce Halal cosmetic creams, I guess the only question that remains is whether or not the consumers are willing to buy them?


LuLu London is a premium cosmetics company.

I only ever use Lush products, they're all vegetarian & a lot are vegan too.


And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

I don't have a lot of knowledge about cosmetics and knew about animal products being used but I had no idea it could contain urine but on second thought it all sounds yucky to put on one's face. Here in Canada, I use The Body Shop, with a similar premise as you've mentioned Sr. Fozia, free of animal testing and animal products. I love their lip balm and bath oils to spritz on after showers - they have really nice candles etc. mashaAllah.

The unity of all, perceptible to even bystanders, is the Oneness that inspired it, a sea without shores, subject me to this sea.
