    This is not the first time I heard a cosmetic line labeled as “halal” because there are several local lines in my country certified as halal cosmetics as well.
    But I’m always interested with cosmetics claimed to be alcohol (ethanol in particular) and pig-free.
    However, in the website, they don’t list down the ingredients.
    When they say their products are advance in terms of ingredients, they MUST list the ingredients so that we know the ingredients they are using.
    It is very common for today’s women to check cosmetics ingredients first before decided to buy it.

    I think it is amazing that one of our sisters has thought of this and went through the effort to give us the option of halal skin care! long over due! And she gave so much care to offer something so beautiful and even special for our hot weather. YIPPIE! I can t wait to be a loyal customer!!!

    I’m not sure about what’s “allowed” or “not allowed” with regards to cosmetics ingredients, but I think that we should definitely be cautious of what we put on our skin/bodies.
    If we can afford to buy organic/animal free stuff it’s better in the long run for us and for the environment. But that’s just my personal opinion 🙂 I go through phases of being really picky to sometimes not caring because I don’t want to spend money. 🙂

    I think it’s best to just ask your dermatologist for advice on products if you’re unsure.

    Total dilemma.When i get to read something like this,i think best thing is NOT TO USE ANYTHING.Not just because of the ingredients,i heard many women saying that when we apply creams/lotions,they hinder the flow of water when we cleanse before prayer.As far as im concerned,my skin dries up when i use skincare creams.

    I really like the concept of this product I hope to see it available in stores soon though. Also, with the pig-free concept I was watching a programme and apparently some lipsticks from well-known brands contain pig anyone else heard about this?

    But what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. Is that not the same thing as ingesting them? You might not go through your stomach but it reaches into your skin and beyond any way. For those who want this type of products I feel it’s a necessary alternative because there are so many things offered with chemicals, preservatives, dyes and really unhealthy things already. It’s an option…

    Well, in that case, why are perfumes containing alcohol prohibited, even though we aren’t going to ingest them either?

    I think it’s cool to see a cosmetic line promoted by a Muslim woman
    but I don’t see the big deal about ingredients… It’s not like were going
    to eat it.

    Absolutely it does matter. As far as possible, I want to use products that avoid killing animals of any kind. And obviously if someone has a conviction that pigs are unclean, they’re going to want to use pig-free, just as in the case of having a conviction about alcohol being something that should not be part of our lives – they’ll want products free of alcohol.

    Okay, maybe I can spell correctly now…lol. I noticed that they will be expanding but the travel kit is the only one available now. At first I thought it was a bit pricey but over the years I’m sure I’ve spent about the same for a good skin care routine! I like how they are gearing it to Gulf area residents now and I like how the products are weather/humidity friendly. That would be great during the summer months! Love the free shipping! YES! I would try this set! What about you?

  15. Jodi

    Wow! Very interesting. I don’t see prices for the individual products though, just the set. I’d love to try the products. This makes me thing that we’ve come a long way in the world. I do think it matters very much what’s in our cosmetics and what’s going into our blood stream. We care about what we eat, so why not what we put on top of it!
