  • AsaWW I get to know through your website that all Garnier products are free of animal derivatives and npo information of alcohol Right? So now if the product contain cetyl or setearyl/ceteryl alcohol will it be halal(i mean frm vegetable source)? and if just "Alcohol " is written on the list does it means ethyle alcohol? I also called them for alcohol they told me that if there will be alcohol in the product it will be clearly written on it.But parfume is prsent in l almost all products and i still cannot find out any body lotion (skin care products) or hair care shampoo/conditioner with out any type of alcohol. If you know any brand tht is completely halal (having no animal derivatives and no ethylalcohol) please tell,otherwise please suggest something tht we must check/avoid while buying personal care products .JazakAllah , - Nadia Zaheer
  • AOA

    First of all Stearyl/ Cetearyl alcohols are not ethyl alcohol but they are fat based waxes. Garnier use donot use animal fat in their product. For alcohol it has to just say alcohol. For example Benzyl alcohol is not ethyl alcohol or alcohol.Benzyle alcohol is a Halal chemical.

  • Asalamualaikum wr wb, Hope you're doing well inshAllah. I had a query regarding icecream products by Baskin Robbins. I did a quick search on the MCG website and it showed green halal sign for most flavors of Baskin Robbin icecreams such as jamoca almond fudge.However, this was last updated in 2009 so not sure how authentic it would be. Even on their website I read that their imported products are halal certified by IFANCA. Just wanted to confirm if this is 100% for imported products to middle eastern countries as well. Do they not use alcohol as a solvent? jazakAllahu khairun Wasalamualaikum Farheen - Farheen
  • AOA

    IFANCA's Criteria for Halal status includes alcohol up to 0.5% and they Halal certify all food products made with alcohol containing flavor. MCG's criteria is zero alcohol for its Halal status. We recommend Baskin Robins ice cream products without any flavor and should made in USA. I have no idea where they made their ice cream products for other countries. We do not use Green Halal sign. We educate if food product in India has green dot and has no flavoring then that are Halal. We have our own two Halal symbol mentioned on this site and on our USA website. Any Baskin Robbin ice cream without falvor remained as is no matter if it is published in 2009.
