  • Salamun Aleykum, so isendthem email and i got the answer back `Thank you for your interest in Amara Halal Cosmetics. Our products are Halal Certified from Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (INFANCA) We use organic and oil base ingredients in our formulations. Please visit the website to learn more about the products. Best regards, Amara Cosmetics www.amaracosmetics.com`` My question is why MCG doesnt except INFANCA`s halal certification? if we use their products we cannot pray salah with it than? JazakAllah Khair. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Main reason for our ojection to IFANCA Halal certification is that their Halal crieria do not match ours. We do not Halal certify or assign Halal to a food product if alcohol is used in flavor, extraction or during processing of ingredients or food products. They do Halal certify food products or ingredients made with alcohol and they consider a food product Halal if it contains a maximum 0.5% alcohol. In ahdith there is no percent or amount allow for a intoxicant and alcohol is a intoxicant. Then how could we accept their Halal certification.

    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 )

  • Salamun Aleykum, while i was searching halal cosmetic i came across with amara cosmetic in usa. they say halal and the website they have faQ and it says: ``How is Amara Cosmetics different from other brands? Amara Cosmetics products are free of Animal and Alcohol contents. Amara cosmetics ingredients are free of harsh chemicals, dyes and parabens (preservatives), Amara Cosmetics products are made with natural sources like plant extracts and use raw (unrefined) ingredients. Amara Cosmetics products are USA made and certified by IFANCA, Islamic Food And Nutrition Council of America. `` however they have Arnica (Montana) Extract, Sage (Salvia) Officinalis Leaf Extract, Aloe (Barbadensis) Leaf Extract in the products. is all kind of extracts made from alcohol based for sure or if a brand says they are halal and free from alcohol and animal derived than should we be fine with that. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Majority of extracts are made by use of alcohol. IFANCA who certify Amara accept 0.5% alcohol as Halal. MCG do not accept IFANCA Halal certification.

  • AOA

    StatusProduct NameCategoryProduct BrandCommentsDate
    halal Heavy Whipping Cream with plant # 36-8580 0nly Whipping Cream Great Value A sister has provide this information: Our supplier has advised us that the careegan in the whipping cream is sourced from seaweed derivitive and there is no ethyl alcohol used in the processing of the carrageenan to make this product. A sister has send this e-amila: They also co-package for Walmart's Great Value "Heavy Whipping Cream". It does not have a kosher symbol on it though, since walmart has different suppliers. But if the package has the plant # 36-8580 listed under the ingredients and also stamped on the top of the package with a date stamp, it is manufactured by Byrne Dairy and would therefore be kosher. They also co-package for Shop-Rite. It should have the same plant# 36-8580. The shop rite one would have a kosher symbol on it. 02-08-15

    They are 100% wrong. Please do not use it.

    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.

    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.

    Only manufacturer can answer your question because they know source of those ingredients. It looks some ingredients may obtain from animal source. There are extracts where alcohol can be used. So please contact them and ask is there any animal derived ingredients are used and is alcohol is used in the extracts and other ingredients.
