Meet revolutionary new beauty company, 786 Cosmetics. 786 tailor products to the needs of Muslim women around the world, specifically with their ultra-popular line of Halal nail polish. What is halal you might be wondering? Halal is an Arabic word for lawful. For something to be considered halal, it must meet the following criteria:
- Free from any component that Muslims are prohibited from consuming according to Islamic law (Shariah).
- Processed, made, produced, manufactured and/or stored using utensils, equipment and/or machinery that has been cleansed according to Islamic law.
Unfortunately for Muslim women many beauty products are not halal due to certain ingredients like alcohol and those derived from animals, which are prohibited by the Qur’an. Additionally, most nail polish formulas do not let water or air through, meaning they are not wudu-friendly. In order to wear nail polish at all, practicing Muslims would constantly need to take off nail polish for prayer and later apply it again…what a pain.
786 Cosmetics to the rescue! Utilizing technology similar to what is used in contact lenses their unique Halal nail polish is breathable and allows oxygen and water to pass through. When water is able to penetrate the polish and reach the nail, practicing Muslims can wear it during prayer rituals.
In fact, 786 Halal nail polish is better for the nails in general making it a great option for everyone. The formulas allow nails to breathe and include more helpful than harmful ingredients. 786 Cosmetics formula is vegan and 7 Free, meaning no harsh chemicals. The nail polish even lasts for 7 – 10 days without any peeling or chipping.
