1.Is it okay to use wool oil (lanolin) and is it considered animal cruelty?

No, it is not animal cruelty.

1) Sheep's wool will keep on growing whether or not it is sheared. By shearing, the animal is also free from carring the burden of excess weigh.

2) Shearing is painless unlike down feathers whereby the feathers are forcefully plucked from the ducks.

2.Are the cosmetics certified Halal in Singapore?

The cosmetics are certified Halal from their country of origin hence we do need further Halal Certification in Singapore.

3.Are the cosmetics wudhu friendly?

All our cosmetics are Halal as they are derived from Halal Certified ingredients. Which means to say they are solat-able products.

HalalShop will not advise on it being wudhu-friendly as it is dependable on each product. Some products are for light usage while some are made to be waterproof.

It also depends on how individual consumer use the products - Thicker makeup looks may hinder water to penetrate to the pores hence making ablution over makeups invalid.

However, if the individual has taken ablution before applying the cosmetics, and that her ablution is still valid, she may proceed to do her prayers without any constrain.
