The global halal cosmetics market reached a value of $74.7 billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2021-2026. Often associated with dietary laws and food, "halal" is an Arabic term that designates objects and actions that are permissible to use or do under Islamic law.

Muslims account for over a fifth of the global population, predicted to increase by 80% in 2050, which will drive the halal market. The certification is increasingly important as a younger generation of conscious consumers emerges.

Inolex has received Halal Certification for its entire product portfolio, meeting the standards for composition, manufacturing, and production required when providing halal product ingredients. Inolex transitioned its entire portfolio to vegan-friendly and cruelty-free in 2018 and verified its ingredients met halal requirements at that time. To be certified halal, ingredients must be traceable and be produced in conformity with the standards of Sharia law. Obtaining Halal Certification is a continuation of Inolex's work to bring greater transparency to its product offering.

It is our mission to serve consumers with a wide range of cultures and beauty care ideals," said Lisa Gandolfi, VP Marketing. "Halal Certification reflects our desire to respect the beliefs and cultural standards to which many of our brands and end consumers adhere.

Over the past several years, Inolex has placed increased focus on qualifying the naturality of its ingredients through third-party verification. Halal Certification provides a guarantee of purity and quality to meet the religious compliance of the Muslim community. A yearly audit to verify purity of feedstocks, processing aids, cleaning products, transport, and packaging, among other safeguards, will be conducted by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA) to ensure international standards are met in accordance with Sharia law. Inolex employees will also receive annual training on these standards.

Halal Certification is an important step for us to make our high performing and sustainable ingredients accessible for all expressions of beauty care and wellness," said Gandolfi. "We are proud to include this certification with our growing body of third-party verifications, which includes USDA, BioPreferred, COSMOS, NSF/ANSI:305, and NATRUE.
