Halal stands for lawful or permissible in Arabic language. Halal cosmetics products are gaining popularity among consumers as they offer excellent advantages over most conventional cosmetics products. For instance, being alcohol free, halal cosmetics are less likely to irritate sensitive skin. Moreover, halal cosmetic products are not tested on animals and completely based on health and ethical benefits.
Consumers are shifting their preference towards halal cosmetics, owing to increasing awareness regarding harmful effects of synthetic cosmetics such as skin allergy, respiratory distress and various others. Also, increasing demand for halal cosmetics in South East Asian countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia and marketing activities by key players to tap potential market into Middle East are driving growth of the global halal cosmetic products market.

For instance, in 2017, Dubai Central Laboratory launched a new testing services in order to verify halal cosmetics for their quality and safety. Such regulatory requirements are a major challenge for small and medium scale cosmetics manufacturers. Furthermore, lack of awareness regarding halal cosmetics and dominance of other cosmetic products in the market is retraining growth of the global halal cosmetic products market.
