5 Halal beauty brands to know about

The global Halal cosmetics market is expected to account for $100.3 Billion by 2028 according to Data Bridge Market Research. Halal beauty is already a growing trend in Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia due to various factors, such as Muslim population increase and bigger reach and engagement from Muslim beauty influencers on social media platforms (more here). As a result more Halal brands are being launched locally. Let’s have a look at 5 Halal beauty brands to know about :
