  • Assalamualaykum. I inquired about the toothpastes in UK to ask them about the 2 extracts they use in their toothpaste. They replied with the following: Thank you for your email Attached are a declaration from Dupont concerning the solvent used for extracting the Betaine (Betafin BP20), and the MSDS for the Olive Leaf Extract (Eurol BT). As can be seen from these, a small quantity of Isopropyl alcohol is used to extract the Betaine, but no detectable traces are present in the finished extract. Isopropyl alcohol should not be confused with Ethyl alcohol or Ethanol which is the intoxicant that people avoid for religious or medical reasons. The Eurol BT is extracted using just water as the solvent. We hope this was of some help to you. Thank you Kindest Regards Rachel Yardley Customer Care Does that mean its halal to use? JazakAllahm - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It is not Halal because Isopropyl alcohol is a intoxicant.

  • AOA

    It is a Haram products because alcohol is present. Alcohol is Haram in Islam because it is intoxicant. Follwing are ahadith about alcohol:

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

    Alcohol cannot be consumed as a medicine or for the remedy of cold climate:

     

    Narrated Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA:

    Wail RA said: Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) about wine, but he ()forbade it. He again asked him(PUBH), but he() forbade him. He RA said to him: Prophet of Allah, it is a medicine. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: No it is a disease.( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28: Medicine (Kitab Al-Tibb)

    Narrated Daylam al-Himyari RA:

    I asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Apostle of Allah ! we live in a cold land in which we do heavy work and we make a liquor from wheat to get strength from if for our work and to stand the cold of our country. He asked: Is it intoxicating I replied: Yes. He said: You must avoid it. I said: The people will not abandon it. He said: If they do not abandon it, fight with them. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26: Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    It is forbidden to prepare vinegar from khamr (wine):

    Anas RA reported that Allah Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about the use of Khamr from which vinegar is prepared. He said: No (it is prohibited).(sahih Muslim, The book of Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)4891)

    Narrated AbdurRahman ibn Ghanam RA:

    Malik ibn AbuMaryam RA said: AbdurRahman ibn Ghanam RA entered upon us and we discussed tila and he RA said: AbuMalik al-Ashari RA told me that he heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: Some of my people will assuredly drink wine calling it by another name. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

  • salam aleikum. i have seen on your website the list of cosmetics companies and your comments if they are halal or not. i have seen your comments about ELF company which i am investigating now. your comment say that if no chacharel is used then their products are halal as they dont use animal derivatives. now i have a question, when you wrote that comment, did you have at that time an information that the company is not using alcohol as it wasnt mention in your comment to look for it, only for cacharel? could you help me to investigate this company? can you send them an email too? the only thing i have from them is email from their customer department that they have nothing animal derived. then when i started asking about alcohol they either felt i have too many questions or dont know what but they told me they cant help me any longer. then i contacted their team in facebook and they after several times telling me the same thing finally answered that they contacted their chemist in china and they confirmed that they dont use ethyl and ethanol. now i dont know if its true or they got tired of me. can you assist here and send them more professional email as well? jazakAllah. salam aleikum, - Tamilla

  • salam aleikum. is the grape seed oil haram by a definition if i meet it in the lsit of ingredients of a product? or should i find out how the company produces/gets it or no need? jazakAllah, - TM
  • AOA

    From our Halal/Haram/Mashbooh Ingredients list:

    haram Grape Seed Extract Grain and plant based ingredients Grape Seed Extract is not Halal because seeds are typically obtained from grape seeds waste of wineries or after wine making.
    haram Grapeseed oil Grain & Plant based Ingredients The source of grape seeds is not from grape because in order to obtained the grape seeds from grapes you have to destroy grapes which can be used for table grape purpose. So the only source of grape seeds is from when grapes is used to make wine. Wine does not contain grape seeds because non Muslims can not drink it. So they have to filter the grape seeds and it is utilized in making grape seed extract and grape seed oil. Both are not Halal.

  • AOA

    It is Halal only if no alcohol is used in natural falvor. Here is how to write e-mail question about alcohol in flavors:

    " is ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; ethanol or ethyl alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of ethanol or ethyl alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of flavors. In the specification of flavor, your flavor supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular flavor. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent".

  • Salam aleikum. JazakAllah for your answers to all my questions. May Allah reward you for that. i have more questions though. will send you one by one so its easier for you. you answered to one of my emails the following: Ethanol is the hidden ingredient of fragarnce. Zinc Stearate is a fat based ingredients, Chinese chemist they do not use animal derived ingredients. Do you trust them I would not. Glycerin either from pork or vegetable fat is the hidden ingredients of Yellow No. 5 lake, Red No. 40 Lake and Ble No.1 Lake. You need in writing that in above no animal fat is used and no pork glycerin is used in artificial color. therefore i would like to ask another question, the company says they dont use ethanol or ethyl, can there be another hidden ingredient in fragrance or only ethanol? if you tell me only ethanol then clearly the company is hiding the truth, if you tell me there can be something except ethanol then i can still trust them in shaa Allah. then you speak about animal based ingredients and that i need to have their answer in writing. i have their answer in writing via email and also facebook, they tell me they confirmed with their chemist that their ingredients have no animal derivatives and that they don't use ethyl and ethanol. is this what you mean or what other way of writing do they have to send me? JazakAllah. salam aleikum - TM
  • AOA

    I already answer the your questions in previous question. You have to understand most cosmetic companies buy raw material from other companies only their QA or technical deperatment has the specification of ingredients for exaple a extract, in the specification of extarct it iswritten which solvent they use ethanol or something else.

    You have forward all their e-mails so I can understand what they are saying. You can forward to Halalfoods@hotmail.com

  • AOA

    The capsule may be made with pork gelation. Please avoid consuming gelatin containing products.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

    It is probably from pork.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

    03/22/14
    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • Asalaamualaikum, how are you? I had a question regarding Mono and Di-glycerides. I believe it comes from either plant or animal, therefore how do we identify if we are allowed to eat it. Also, if something has 2% or less of Mono and Diglycerides, is it permissible to eat it. Jazakallah khair! - Syed Irfan Hussain
  • AOA

    Alhumdullah I am fine. From our FAQ:

    What is Mono and Diglycerides:

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides.

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

    Brother Mujeeb did not provide the information some or all Colgate toothpaste in India are made with Carrageenan. I do not have no access to Indian foods and non food product. Please provide me the list of Colgate Toothpaste made without Carrageenan I am sure not all toothpaste are made with Carrageenan. I trust Indian Muslims who provide me th information on foods and non food products.
