HALAL INGREDIENTS


October 2026, halal certification will be mandatory for all cosmetic products (and other consumer goods) that are imported, traded or distributed on Indonesian territory. We can see that Western consumers are also increasingly starting to request Halal-certified products. The Asian market attaches importance to quality assurance, while in Europe, the focus is often on the label and what a cosmetic product provides. So, demand for Halal-compliant ingredients is expected to continue to grow, not least because this certification also comprises the vegan aspect of products.

PCG: From a technical perspective, which ingredients have been most challenging to include as Halal and how have you overcome the challenges? MS: There is a list of critical substance groups that we pay special attention to. These include fatty acids, fatty alcohols and glycerine. For those as for any other so-called critical material we must present certificates from our suppliers. Halal certification is obligatory for these critical substances and they are constantly


our procurement process has been turned into a check and release process for Halal ingredients and buyers are continuously trained.

checked across all sites. This way, we secure transparency across the entire production and supply chain. A Halal self-statement from the


supplier is not deemed sufficient, as no external source approved halal compliance. If a supplier is not Halal compliant, they will be replaced in case our Halal demand cannot be satisfied on short term. This leads to higher complexity in our purchasing processes and, if necessary, repeated verification of the promised quantities. Therefore,


PCG: How important do you see Halal ingredients becoming over the next few years? MS: The global market for Halal- certified personal care products is expected to grow by 2.9% each year up to 2024 according to the State of the Global Islamic Economy Report 2020/21. With the increasing prosperity in some countries, demand for cosmetic products is on the rise. It goes without saying that we want to continue to meet the requirements of the growing cosmetics market, especially in Asia. The demands of multiregional customers are understandable: they want to be able to use our products worldwide and appreciate the best level of conformance to different standards. Our certification ensures this.


PCG: What plans do you have on the horizon for your Halal certified portfolio? MS: Halal compliance and the integration of certification into the

management system underpins our efforts to guarantee halal conformity in the long term and across all our processes. With our expanded portfolio of Halal- certified cosmetic ingredients, we are responding to the growing global demand for personal care products that adhere to Islamic law. This means we can better serve our customers – especially those in predominantly Muslim countries, e.g. the Maghreb region, the Middle East and some countries in Asia. The fact that, in late 2026, Halal


certification will become mandatory for all cosmetic products (and other consumer goods) imported, traded, or distributed on Indonesian territory is a driving force. The market for Halal-certified products is today biggest in Muslim-majority countries in Asia, but the growing Muslim population in Western countries is driving demand there as well. Non-Muslims are also increasingly turning to these certified products. The holistic transition to Halal-


compliant products throughout the entire production and supply chain secures customers’ trust and business opportunities.
