Someone was promoting makeup that is gluten-free. Believe me if I have something with gluten in my face breaks out. They also said the make up was kosher. So my friends, is kosher important in makeup?
I went to a Mary Kay party and my face broke out like crazy. I have to be very careful on shampoo or my head itches enough to drive me nuts. I cannot tolerate gluten. I actually had to take the Mary Kay make up off at the party because I starting to turn red.
@NKarta would be a better source of information on this. The stuff in those two links goes way beyond anything I observe.
Answering for halal, I ain't sure. I mean, it's gotta be preferable. But who really knows.
Then again, I don’t wear makeup.
It doesn’t matter but I’m pretty sure my makeup is cruelty free and that matters.
That was among the other things this brand was. Also vegan. I just never heard of kosher make up before
I have no idea!
It is a concern for Jews who keep kosher, and especially during Passover. And it goes far beyond "pig fat," and far beyond just makeup, into the wider realm of personal hygiene. It looks like it's even more complicated that what vegans and those who need to avoid gluten have to watch out for, because it involves religious dietary laws that can be interpreted different ways.
Maybe @GrandmaAlice has some information on how much of an issue this is for Jewish women (and men? since it's not all about makeup) in general, or certain groups more specifically.
Kosher is a LOT more than just pigs.
My guess is that it doesn’t use pork collagen. It wild probably be the same for halal.
My guess is the possibility of ingesting it, especially things like lipstick.
I think so, yes. I don’t wear make up though lol
Yes and she said she should pay attention to it but doesn’t
It’s not important to me.
So wrong it hard to explain.
Thank you for your research. I haven’t really bothered with make up but I think I’m going to start. I just feel better. I have to be very careful with shampoo so I’m going to have to be careful when I start using make up also. Never thought that the itching make up caused was a reaction. I guess I don’t think things through all the time.
Nope kosher is a fictional label. It’s plays no role in diet. It’s only a religious label.
Unless it had pigs fat as a bass.
Makeup does not have to be kosher. Lipstick maybe, but Im pretty sure it also doesnt have to be. I don’t have time to read the links rn so I will read them later and get back to u.
Does your Mom?
Passover is a totally different story. On passover, there is a prohibition against OWNING things which are chametz (google it, its too complicated for a comment). There is a disagreement between different rabbis if makeup is included in this.
