Halal Purifying Cleaner
Globally, the demand for halal certification is growing, requiring all processes leading up to packaging, handling, storage, transportation, and distribution to comply with halal requirements. Halal foods have to be careful prepared and be reconsidered if najis have contaminated the ingredient or food preparation area. In order to clean severe najis, Islam requires proper hygiene by using soil or clay and water mixed 7 times for one day. It is necessary to modify the traditional practice of using any soil or clay at any concentration level for industrial applications. It is necessary to develop specific samak soil and clay standards for industrial applications so that halal requirements can be met and equipment specifications can be met. Furthermore, it must comply with regulations and guidelines regarding the safety and quality of products manufactured. This is why we produce an industrial standard samak clay that meets all of the specifications listed above. Below is detail specification of our samak clay.
As clay minerals have a high specific area and absorption capacity, they can also be used therapeutically for health purposes in pharmaceutical formulations, especially cosmetics and dermatological protectors for topically applied applications. Because of its cation exchange capacity, cooling index, and ability to clean, moisturize, and combat compact lipodystrophies, acne, and cellulite, it is commonly used in aesthetic medicine.
