Halal is becoming big business for the beauty industry globally, and particularly in Asia: a central focus for this week’s in-cosmetics Korea event, we take a closer look at the trend.
Kunal Mahajan, project manager of Chemicals & Energy at Kline – top management consulting firm serving the Chemicals industry globally – explains in the article that “halal” can not only be associated with food and beverages, but that its denomination is equally appropriate for pharmaceuticals, personal care, skincare and hair care products.
But what makes a product halal and why does “halal” become a trend in cosmetics?
Mahajan outlines the answers in detail in his article: The key contributors to this trend is economics and the changing consumer lifestyle.
According to Mahajan, top growth regions for halal products will be the Middle East and Asia, particularly South Asia and Southeast Asia.
