      The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

      Some of the products contain animal ingredients e.g geletine.

      It's not just about what's Halaal to consume, I would feel a bit uncomfortable washing myself with something Naajis like soap with pig fat in it. It's best to stick to Tuhoor products.

      key word was 'haram' not najis.

      Every other day , I see posts from Guppies asking if something is haram or halal.

      Why is there not an international committee, say in the OIC or an International Mulla committee, specifically writing what is halal.

      Masterbation, coke, food cooked by non-muslims, medicines, growing a beard, wearing lipstick, burqha, hijab, cosmetics, shaving under arms, music, singing, dancing etc etc etc etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.....

      I was looking for the halal or haram status of colgate toothpaste and found this




      The truth is that very few of us are aware of how harsh most toothpastes are and the potential damage they can do to your mouth and body. While children are at the greatest risk because they tend to swallow more while brushing their teeth, many of the chemicals in toothpaste can easily be absorbed into the body via the tongue and the thin mucous membrane inside the mouth.
      Toothpastes contain a number of slow-motion poisons including saccharin and artificial colourings and flavourings (all potential carcinogens). More worrying still is the fact that every tube of family toothpaste contains a lethal dose of fluoride. In the UK advertising promotes fluoride toothpastes as healthy; in the US the government regulator the Food and Drug Administration requires their packaging to include health warnings and information on contacting local poisons control officers in the event of ingestion.
      Amazingly, for something that is put in the mouth and frequently swallowed, anybody can make and sell toothpaste in the UK: licences are only necessary if manufacturers make medicinal claims (such as an ability to reduce tooth sensitivity).
      Ingredients

      Sorbitol: Sweetener and tartar control agent, humectant. Bloating and intestinal cramping in high doses, laxative. Because of its laxative effects, the use of gel toothpastes (which can contain up to 70 per cent sorbitol) by small children should be supervised, possibly even discouraged, by parents.

      Glycerin: Lubricant. Improves the feel of the product. Humectant: keeps the product moist. Glycerin can be processed from plants or animals. Generally safe, but can dry the skin around the mouth.

      PVM/MA copolymer: Plastic-like glue derived from polyvinyl, often found in hair gels and sprays, which sticks the triclosan, and other ingredients, to the teeth and gums. Health effects unknown.

      Sodium Hydroxide: Bleaching/cleaning agent. A common component of oven and drain cleaners. Can cause skin irritation.

      Sodium Fluoride: strengthens tooth enamel, antibacterial. Health effects: Fluorosis: spotting, mottling and yellowing of the teeth; especially in children; Osteoporosis: ingested fluoride leeches calcium from the bones; Allergy/hypersensitivity reactions; Poisonous: ingestion can cause salivation, nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain and diarrhoea. THERE IS ENOUGH FLUORIDE IN A 100-MILLILITRE TUBE OF ‘FAMILY’ TOOTHPASTE TO KILL A SMALL CHILD.

      Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) P: detergent and foaming agent. SLS is a harsh cleanser often used as an engine de-greaser. It’s added to toothpaste to make it foam, but is not necessary to clean your teeth. Health effects: Irritating to the mucous membranes in the mouth; mouth ulcers, canker sores; contact eczema.

      Aroma: flavouring. Health effects: Allergic reactions: some of these may mimic common dental problems, such as bleeding gums, mouth ulcers and gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). It is a potential carcinogen: aromas are generally petroleum derivatives and can be contaminated with cancer-causing substances

      CI 42090: Blue Colouring. Health effects: hyperactivity, skin rashes. Potential carcinogen: there is some evidence that CI 42090, also known as FD&C Blue 1 and E133, can cause cancer in animals. BANNED IN AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, FRANCE, GERMANY, NORWAY, SWITZERLAND AND SWEDEN

      Carageenan: Thickener. Part of a naturally occurring family of carbohydrates extracted from red seaweed; also known as E407. Health effects: stomach aches, potential carcinogen: has been associated with cancer of the gastrointestinal tract in animals, and laboratory evidence suggests it can act as a trigger for breast cancer in humans.

      Triclosan: Antibacterial agent. Reduces plaque. Health effects: gum damage - causes premature cell death in gum tissues; allergic reactions; ulceration; alters the biodynamic balance of the mouth - kills ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria, which could make users more vulnerable to infection. A chlorinated aromatic, triclosan is molecularly similar to dioxins, PCBs (highly toxic chlorine-based compounds) and the herbicide Agent Orange. Indeed, its manufacturing process can release dioxins (powerful hormone disrupters) into the environment. It is also a chlorophenol, a class of chemicals that can cause cancer in animals. Commonly used as a pesticide, it is easily absorbed into the body via the mouth, and has been associated with liver damage in animals.

      Saccharin: Artificial sweetener. Health effects: carcinogenic - linked to bladder cancer in animals. In the US, foods that include saccharin must declare it is a potential carcinogen on the label. No such warnings are required in the UK.

      CI 47005: Yellow colouring. Health effects: asthma; rashes; hyperactivity. Aspirin-sensitive people should avoid this colouring. Also known as FD&C yellow 10 and E104, CI 47005 is a coal-tar dye and can contain impurities that are neurotoxic and carcinogenic. Banned in Australia, the US and Norway.
      Alternatives

      Even some ‘natural’ toothpastes contain contested ingredients. So, make sure you read the label before you buy. Some of the better options include:

      There are plenty of Islamic websites where you can find out about haram or halal ingredients.

      My above post can also be beneficial for you bcoz for most hindus Meat is Haram.
