  • I want to ask about lanolin alcohol, because it's present in my lipstick. Does lanolin alcohol haram to eat? Because sometimes I lick my lips and I lick the lipstick too. Btw that lipstick already had halal certification because i live in moslem country, but im still not sure about lanolin alcohol, is it halal if we eat it? (i'm little bit paranoid with alcohol) - Avy
  • AOA

    Lanolin Alcohol is not the Haram alcohol. Lanolin is a wool waxy fat obtained from sheep wool the it is treated with acetic acid and lye to make Lanolin Alcohol.

    It is Halal if Lanolin obtained from sheep's wool.

  • i want to know if walgreens stool softeners soft gels are halal its active ingredient is docusate sodium and inactive ingredient is gelatine glycerin etc - kiran farhan
  • AOA

    From our website's Alert section:

    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.

  • Here is the information I got from lush handmade cosmetics ; Hi Sayed! Thank you for writing to us. We don't have specific list for all the products that are vegan and non-alcoholic at the same time,however please know that we are very strict in using only vegetable glycerine for our products. Our products are 100% vegetarian, and many are also vegan. The ingredients that are used in some products that make them non-vegan are things like beeswax, honey, pollen, fresh free range eggs, lanolin, milk, and yogurt.The products that are vegan are marked with a green V logo on our website, and we list our full ingredients so that you can see what's in there and choose only what you feel comfortable with using. Cetearyl alcohol is used across our entire range of fresh products as an emulsifier; we use it in everything from our Enchanted Eye Cream, Gorgeous, Imperialis and Celestial skin creams, to our Whipstick,Honey Trap lip balms and Jungle hair conditioner.Again, since we don't have a specific list of products that are non-alcoholic and use this ingredient in a variety of products I encourage you to take a look at our website and search categories,and than take a look at each individual product of interest.You will notice that most of our cleansing products such as soaps,shower gels as well as shampoos are alcohol free however body and face moisturizers do contain this specific form of alcohol. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions and I'd be happy to help!

    Some times customer service people just look at ingredients and if they do not find ethanol or alcohol then they said no alcohol but they do not know alcohol is a hidden ingredient of fragrance. Since they said that soap, shower gel and shampoo do not contain alcohol. In order to make sure they understand I wrote to them this question and you alway this phrase to ask question about alcohol in fragrance and extract. Ibiza part shampoo is made with wine vinegar which MCG do not consider as Halal. I love juicy shampoo conatins mushbooh Carrageenan. No drought Shampoo is Halal.  Fair Trade Honey do not have claim of animal derived ingredients so it is not Halal and same thing Curley Wurley shampoo. No extract is used in shampoo. Please send e-mail to them those make up products which has claim no animal derived ingredients present but has fragrance or extract in them. If you get the answer then please send back to me because I am brother can not ask question about make up. If you help MCG in this reagred I will appreciate and it will be beneficial for all other sisters. I will publish the result after I receive information on soaps, shower gel and shampoo from them. I will also publish information you received from them

    Hi

    Due to my religious requirements I have this question for soaps, shower gels and shampoo:

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

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent.

The lady at the customer service said that they are vegan ( except animal hair make up brushes), carmine free and don't use alcohol during extraction in products labelled as alcohol free.

  • At Gabriel cosmetics the sales lady told me they were vegan( expect that their brushes use sheep and pony hair) and don't use carmine. Although most of products are alcohol free but some have alcohol like reed sea weed gentle exfoliater, liquid foundation, concealer, mascara and lipgloss. But lipsticks and eye shades don't have any alcohol according to the company. She gave a product list which I will email u separetly in sha Allah for alcohol verification in some of their products. Anyway, I want to know whether their lipsticks are halal? Because apparently they look fine. Ingredients are : Ingredients List Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil Carthamus Tinctorius(Safflower) Seed Oil Retinyl Palmitate Tocopheryl Acetate Lecithin Crithmum Maritimum (Sea Fennel) Extract Bisabolol Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract Iron Oxides Mica Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort) Extract Titanium Dioxide.

  • Are GNC Biotin 600 MCG tablets halal - Fatima Ahmad
  • AOA

    They are not Halal because there is no kosher symbol on the package. They may be made with 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.

  • bio 7 days beauty plan white vitamin-e foruil cosmetics contain symptoms of alcohol (cetyl alcohol, D & C red # 5, FD & C YELLOW # 6) is it halal or haram - anum adil
  • AOA

    Cetyl alcohol is not ethanol.

    From our FAQ:

    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.

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent.

    Only manufacturer knows the source of above ingredients so please contact them.

  • I know it might not be related to ur field, but I just want an opinion because u know a lot better than others Ma Sha Allah. Can I wear a red coral ring ; of which the coral is obtained from a marine invertebrate and then dyed. The seller didn't know what were the ingredients of the red dye were, so it might b containing anything? So is the coral from a marine invertebrate a problem or the dye? And is 1000 ppm of alcohol in a perfume makes it ok to use? I think it's 0.1%. Thanks.. - Aim
  • AOA

    Marine has to be fish for it be Halal for Hanafi Muslims becuase not all marine are Halal for Hanafi Muslim. The ingredients of dye has to be known but if they are artificial then it has to meet Halal requirements. If dye is natural and includes red color from carmine then it is Haram. So you have to find out the name of marine and ingredients of dye.

    From our FAQ:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form.

  • Is The Body Shops stuff Halal? its says that It's 100% vegetarian but idk - Azalea Marshilla
  • AOA

    From our Alert section:

    MCG requests our sisters not use The Body Shop Cosmetic products

    MCG has contacted the Body Shop Company on August 30, 2013 and asked about reference number 63461 a e-mail received from The Body Shop by our sister Mrs. Ajmal and send to MCG (the e-mail is listed below). Beside her, other sisters also requested to inquire about the Halal status of The Body Shop cosmetic.

    Recently MCG received a request from The Body Shop to change the status of The Body Shop cosmetic from Non Halal to Halal.

    MCG did further investigation and asked The Body Shop whey their employee Milan Zivkovic wrote in reference number 63461 that they use gelatin. The company told MCG on August 30, 2013 that she wrote it wrong and she no longer with the company and said their company is supplying some vegetarian products since 2008. They use some non vegetarian ingredients such as beeswax, Honey, Silk and Cholesterol (which could be from milk or animal fat). The customer service is based in Slovenia in Europe.

    There is written contradiction of their claim that some of their products are made with gelatin which could be from pork or beef.

    So MCG requests our sisters not use The Body Shop Cosmetic products.

    To: A. Ajmal <a.ajm@>

    Dear Ms. Ajmal,

     Thank you for contacting The Body Shop online team.

     The Body Shop® is not a vegetarian or vegan company; however the vast majority of our products contain no animal derived ingredients.  We aim to avoid the use of animal-derived ingredients wherever possible and specify non-animal ingredients whenever there is a choice.  All our soaps, for example, use a vegetable base rather than the commonly used animal-fat base.  Gelatin, beeswax, honey, milk, shellac and lanolin are the only product ingredients knowingly used by The Body Shop® which do not comply with the most current definition of Vegan.  Where synthetic forms or derivatives of these materials are available, such as lactic acid, these are always specified for our formulations.  We do not use the ingredient "carmine" in our product formulations.  

    With utmost certainty we can tell you that the Raspberry Born Lippy balm is 100% vegan product.

     Should you need further assistance with this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you once again for contacting The Body Shop.  I hope you find the level of service provided to you via this correspondence satisfactory.  If you are not satisfied or need immediate assistance, please feel free to contact our Customer Care Center at:  1-800-263-9746.

     Kindest regards,

  • assalam alaikum wa Rahman Allah I always read that alcohol is used in medicines ONLY as a solvent for coloring or flavoring , so it is not added for medical purposes , In other words it is a minor hidden ingredient and therefore it is not even mentioned with the ingredient . My questions are: Dose this alcohol totally change into another substance during the processing so it is not alcohol anymore?? So it is chemically changes into something else with new features??? This very important for me to know Secondly a medicine that contains alcohol as a solvent only not mentioned in the package with ingredients , if we imagine that I eat all the tablets or capsules at once will I be intoxicate???? May Allah reward you with Paradise I need the answers Assalam alaikum - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Alcohol is only changed if it reacted with Azetobacter bacteria to acetic acid and water but either it is evaporated and remained as is. But we always have to remmeber the famous hadith " Khamer or intoxicant is iteself is a disease and disease can not cure disease". There are lot of medicine made without alcohol even many cough syrup, mouthwash, medicne are alcohol free.

Therfore, .I went to a Whole Food Store and found the following medicines please tell me whether they are Halal or not ...we have nobody to help us and I really need the medicines. Here are the links of the medicines I found and they are all suitable for vegetarians: First http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-D-Mannose-Powder-3-oz-85-g/531 Second;: http://www.supersup.com/natures-way-primadophilus-optima-womens-90-billion-30-capsules-033674158593 Please I need the reply ASAP And I will buy other two medicines for heartburn and V d deficiency Waiting for the response And if you cannot replay for any reason please send an email to let me know.

    I already answer this question through e-mail.

    Now Foods, D-Mannose Powder, 3 oz (85 g) is a Halal D-Mannose.

    http://www.supersup.com/natures-way-primadophilus-optima-womens-90-billion-30-capsules-033674158593:

    "Delivers 90 Billion Active Probiotics Derived from Human Microflora" is bothered me. Find out whether "Human Microflora" is actually obtained from human if so then it is not Halal.

    Magnesium stearate could be from animal fat because there is no declaration that it is avegan product. Oleic Acid could also obtained from animal fat.

    Please contact the manufacturer for above questions.
