Is Hydrolyzed Pearl a Permissible Ingredient Used in Cosmetics?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

I pray you are in good faith and health. Thank you for your question.

Hydrolyzed Pearl is a cosmetic ingredient that is permissible. Most products made from animal and fish ingredients undergo an essential change. If you are unsure of this, the base assumption is purity.

[Usmani, Takmila al-Fath-Mulhim]

It is derived from freshwater pearls. It makes the skin smooth, exquisite, whitening, and moist. It is particularly effective for preventing skin aging and roughness, reducing wrinkles and black spots, and healing face furuncle, whelk, and wounds. Used after-sun products, face creams, face lotions, skin care products, and skin-lightening creams.
