Are cosmetics in Malaysia certified as Halal

The use of halal logo is permitted for cosmetic products, provided that the product is certified halal by the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia or JAKIM. However, certification of halal depends on application by the manufacturer / distributor  to JAKIM and is not a mandatory requirement for cosmetics notification in Malaysia.
