9 halal products every Muslim woman needs in her beauty stash

Cruelty-free with no chemicals or alcohol, these halal beauty picks are prayer-safe and work wonders.

Over the years, more and more brands are cropping up, offering high quality products in halal formulas for Muslim women.

Halal beauty products don’t use any animal products or alcohol. They also need to be cruelty-free. Some, such as “breathable” nail polish are also specially created so that they can be worn during wudu (washing before prayer).

Here, we run through some of the halal products every Muslim woman needs in her beauty kit.

  • Farsáli Unicorn Essence


    The oil-free berry- packed serum protects skin against free radicals, primes it for make-up, and doubles up as a rosy highlighter. The ultimate multitasker for busy women.

  • Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Enamel Soft Matte Polish in 507


    An advanced polymer in the formula allows both air and water to pass through the polish to the nails for wudu (washing before prayer).
