DUBLIN — Halal is an Arabic term that means “permissible” or “lawful.” It is a universal term which applies to all facets of life, including banking and clothes. However, this term is now popularly used in connection with food products, meat products, cosmetics, personal care products, leather goods, and food ingredients. Halal cosmetics and personal care vendors are certified by halal certification organizations which operate under Islamic law. If a product is halal approved, it does not contain alcohol, is not tested on animals, and does not contain certain non-permissible animal-derived ingredients. Halal cosmetics and personal care products are widely recognized for their purity and high quality.
