What are Kosher skin & hair care products? - Qué son los productos Kosher para el cuidado de la piel y el cabello?

When your product or establishment is Kosher, consumers know that you comply with a strict policy of kosher laws, including cleanliness, purity and quality.
Kosher law in food prohibits eating shellfish, land animals with scales, and birds of prey, but halal does not. Both kosher and halal rules prohibit eating pork. ... Kosher law prohibits mixing dairy and meat as well as the cooking, serving, and cleaning utensils used for them, but halal law does not. This is relevant, because many skin care products, soaps, lip sticks, etc. have been and still are made with animal fats and parts. 
Aside from animal fat, there are other non-kosher ingredients one must be aware of when shopping for non-food items such as hand and bathing soaps, foam cups, or even pharmaceuticals.
Some common examples:

Ethanol (a colorless volatile flammable liquid which is produced by the natural fermentation of sugars; alcohol, for example yeast used in the making of beer metabolizes the sugar into ethanol).

Gelatin (a virtually colorless and tasteless water-soluble protein prepared from collagen and used in food preparation as the basis of jellies, in photographic processes, and in glue) is made from the bones and hides of animals or fish. To permit the use of gelatin even in a non-food product, such as in a dish washing detergent capsule, special kosher gelatin must be obtained. 

Stearic acid (a solid saturated fatty acid obtained from animal or vegetable fats) is an example of a fatty acid which can be from either animal or vegetable origin. Stearic acid is often used in pills and other medications as a lubricant and release agent. Even though medication pills are not viewed as foods, nevertheless, the OU will require that the lubricants be kosher as well.
