    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient as hidden ingredient. 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.

  • AOA

    The use fatty acide amide during as additive to avoid friction. If there is a Kosher symbol on the film package containing food products such as Thin Spaghetti etc then you do not have to worried about because this fatty amide is obtained from vegetable fat.

    This is very good question asked by a Muslim consumer. Halal food list on our website whether it is packed in boxes or film 99% of them has kosher symbol on it. But I put it on our Alert section so that Muslims should not buy the Non Kosher symbol food products in plastic film.

    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.

    08/15/13
    Vitamins: What make them Haram or Non Halal

    The following factors make Vitamins as Haram or Non Halal:

    1. Gelatin:

    Gelatin listed under ingredients statement or part of the capsule makes vitamins

    as Haram if gelatin was obtained from pork or Non Halal if it was obtained from non zabiha beef.

    Only Fish gelatin is Halal and it should be mentioned under ingredients statement.

    The capsules must be made with cellulose to be consider Halal.

    2. Magnesium Stearate:

    Magnesium Stearate is helps in flowing the other ingredients and is a fat based emulsifier and it could be obtained either from pork fat or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat Magnesium Stearate is consider Halal.

    3. Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients:

    Every vitamin is made with Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients because FDA allows manufacturer to add a maximum of 2% of formula as Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients. FDA also allows manufacturer not to mentioned under the ingredients statement. The hidden or processing aid ingredients must be from Halal sources.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on the vitamins package protects Muslims from added Haram Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients.

    4. Coating on Vitamins:

    Pharmaceutical glaze, vegetable beet glaze, Shellac, Lac Resin are used to coat the vitamin tablets to protect them from breaking. All glazes are made by dissolving insect secretion Shellac in alcohol and applying the glaze on the tablets. So please do not buy the vitamins with coating.

    5. Extracts:

    Many source of vitamins are also obtained from plant extracts such as Bioperine (black pepper fruit extract), Tomato Extract (lycopene), Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. They become Non Halal if alcohol was used as a solvent. It is better to avoid those vitamins with extract otherwise you have to call the manufacturer to find out whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not. Most of the time alcohol is used for extraction from plants.

    6. Natural Flavor:

    Alcohol might be used as a solvent in natural flavor so it is better to avoid consuming vitamins with natural flavors. Majority of natural flavors are made with vanilla. If vanilla is used as a natural flavor then the natural flavor will not be Halal.

    7. Chewable Vitamins:

    All chewable vitamins specially for kids are made with natural flavor. You have to contact the manufacturer whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not.

    8. Ingredients where alcohol was used during its processing and they are added to vitamins:

    Alcohol is used during the manufacturing of some ingredients such as Stevia which is a natural sweetener called Steviol Glycol. It is extracted from Stevia plant by water but crystallized it by use of ethyl alcohol.

    Moisturizing Lotion Cetaphil moisturizing lotion Cetaphil A sister has provide this information: From: Peter.MCGILL@galderma.com To: dr_ambareen Subject: FW: Cetaphil moisturizing lotion Date: Thu, 11 Apr 2013 09:13:41 +0000 Dear Dr Ambareen We received your request below and have conducted the request with our Regulatory Affairs Department and Formulation Department. The response is the following: We confirm that Galderma has never used in any of the Cetaphil products produced, any raw material from animal origin (beef of pork). It is stated in our Cetaphil formulation charter that we cannot do so. The charter is a signed, contractual agreement between L’Oréal (a 50% shareholder of Galderma) and Galderma SD that defines the condition of use and development of products between both entities.

    The products must label "Halal" in order to be Halal. Products made in Muslims countries does not mean Halal because they use alcohol in flavor or in fragrance. Those cosmetic products has to be investigated for Halal status. In UAE wine and beer is available for everybody than how come they will have cosmetic products where they use alcohol in fragrance. I was on Dubai airport and most of the shops are liquor shops, I understand they sale for non Muslims but selling, carrying wine or beer is Haram in Islam.

  • Assalamualaikum Wr Wb,, I`m a muslimah who`s really concern about skincare. I want to take care of my skin without any harm and haram ingredients But, sadly most of the " Halal Certification " skincare products did not suitable for my skin. My skin became itchy, blemishes here and there, and other bad conditions that pretty women can tell So.. i decided to use skincare from Asian - only Japan and Korea, plus a few from western.What im using is SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, Menard Tsukika Washing Cream, Menard Beauness S Toner, Primera Watery Oil Free Gel Cream, Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence, Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Water Base, SK-II Cellumination Essence EX, Bioderma Hydrabio H2O, Avene Water Spray, Cure Natural Aqua Gel, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment, Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask, Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner, Biologique Recherche Lotion P50W, SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, SK-II Whitening Source Derm Revival Mask, Tatcha Pure Camellia Cleansing Oil, Clinique All About Eyes, Dewytree Ultra Vitalizing Snail Gel Cream. My question, is there any haram ingredients in those products that i use? I know is a very long question, but really.. choosing the right skincare and cosmetics is a gambling game for me as a muslim. I would be very grateful if you want to help me.. Big thanks for your attention and may Allah SWT always take care of you and your family Ps : sorry for bad english Best regards,, Astry Indah - astry indah
  • AOA

    How do you know that skincare from Japan and Korea are Halal does they have Halal symbol on them, due you check what hidden ingredients are used which will not appear under ingredients satement.

    From above Snail Gel Cream is Haram for Hanafi Muslims. There are many ingredients which are custom made only manufacturer knows the source, so you have to contact them about whether any ingredients obtained from animal source and other than fish source from sea animals and any alcohol used during processing or present in fragrance.

    I just found out Lotus Herbal a vegetarian cosmetic company from India which products can be used if no extract or carmine color are used.

  • Is the garnier bb cream uv protector miracle skin perfecter spf 50 halal? I contacted my country's (UAE) customer service and they informed me that there are no animal derived ingredients because l'oreal (which owns garnier) is cruelty-free. However after doing research I discovered that there's a lot of controversy about l'oreal's status as a cruelty-free company. I'm sorry that im asking this question even though I dont live in the US but I dont know how to find an answer to my question. Jazakallah khair - shaikha
