Amara Halal Cosmetics is the first company in North America to provide completely Halal-Certified cosmetic products manufactured in the U.S. specifically for the Muslim community. Amara Halal Cosmetics strives to promote awareness in the Muslim community that “Halal isn’t limited to what is consumed as food but also applies to what is put on our skin”.
Amara Halal Cosmetics was founded in 2010 with a vision to provide its community with pure, clean, cosmetic products that abide by Halal standards. The word “Halal” is an Arabic word used many times in Quran, which means Permitted or Acceptable according to an Islamic law. It’s the opposite of Haram which means Prohibited or Unacceptable according to an Islamic law. In the Holy Quran Allah commands us not to eat any Haram foods and only to eat Halal foods; it’s mandatory.
There has been a common misconception up until now about what constitutes Halal, with many people assuming that it relates purely to food. Others who have had a better understanding of the rulings have simply been unaware that some cosmetics contain ingredients that they should avoid. Now, with the introduction of Amara Halal Cosmetics, there is no need for misconceptions or misunderstandings since Amara Halal Cosmetics provides its customers with pure, clean, cosmetic products. We can all be pretty and be worry free.
