Stricter Control on Halal Cosmetic Regulation: Are you ready for the change?

The passing of Halal Product Assurance Law in 2014 has garnered interest for Halal products even for Non-Muslim consumers which account for 30% of Halal cosmetic sales in 2016. Furthermore, due to the growing awareness of Non-Muslim for less harmful skincare products, Halal cosmetic industries are expected to expand. By 2024, Global Halal Beauty Market is expected to be worth USD$21.4 billion and estimated to grow by 15% each year. With the growing interest in Halal products, it is important to ensure that the core standards of Halal products are met. However, there are challenges involved in developing Halal products, especially in Indonesia.

Challenges involved in developping Halal Products

The New Halal legislation in Indonesia:

  • targets Halal products quality
  • is administered by Badan Penanggulangan Jaminan Produk Halal (BPJPH) or the Halal Product Assurance Agency (BPJPH), involving MUI and the Halal Audit Institutions (LPH).
  • requires all consumers’ products sold in Indonesia to have MUI Halal certification by Oct 2019. The registration via other bodies are not acknowledged.
  • enforces administrative penalties after three years grace period upon non-compliance.

This implementation is likely to cause the following challenges to the manufacturer:

Demand for Halal Certified Products.
  1. Extra financial cost: Each Halal Certification will cost about $1030, NOT inclusive of Audits.
  2. Extra Time consuming: Currently BPJPH is severely understaffed, which means that application for Halal certification will be slow. MUI only process up to 6000 certification annually. Additionally, for products to be inline with Islamic principle, the entire process needs to be scrutinised.
  3. Search for Limited Halal certified ingredients: For non-halal certified ingredients, many documents have to be submitted to MUI.

increase the cost for Halal Certification. Additionally, more time and man power have to be invested to meet the stricter Halal certification requirements. Since Halal cosmetics is a huge market in Indonesia and Asia, we could not avoid Halal Certification for long. Hence, the cheapest and quickest solution now is to seek for products which are already MUI Halal Certified. If you are one of the personal care industries affecting by the new regulation, we have solution for you.
