Verifying the purity and quality of its ingredients for a halal lifestyle
PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 13, 2021 — INOLEX has received Halal Certification for its entire product portfolio, meeting the standards for composition, manufacturing, and production that are required when providing ingredients for halal consumers.
INOLEX transitioned its entire portfolio to vegan-friendly and cruelty-free in 2018 and has verified its ingredients to meet halal requirements since this time. Achieving the next milestone of Halal Certification is an important part of the journey towards inclusive beauty. Halal Certification is also a continuation of INOLEX’s path to bring greater transparency to its product offering. To be certified halal, ingredients must be traceable and be produced in conformity with the standards of Sharia law. The certification of ingredients provides end consumers confidence that they can extend halal practices to their beauty care routine.
“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 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.”
