Halal beauty products have become increasingly popular among women in the Middle East. According to a report in Reuters halal beauty products have earned $500 million for the global halal market. The products don’t contain alcohol or pork like most cosmetics, and are instead made using plants and natural minerals. Dietary restrictions of Islam ban pork and alcohol usage in food, although the two can be found in cosmetics. Halal means legal under Islamic law, and is commonly used when referring to meat slaughtered and prepared following provisions under Islamic law. Halal fragrances are also expected to boom in the halal market, and are made using natural minerals. American companies including Colgate-Palmolive now make halal toothpaste and mouthwash.
