Botox ban for Malaysian Muslims

From the BBC.

Muslims in Malaysia are going to have to learn to live with their wrinkles, after the country's top Islamic body ruled against Botox injections.

The council decided that the serum contained prohibited substances, including those derived from pigs. At the last meeting of the National Fatwa Council, Malaysia's top Muslim clerics decided to ban black metal music - a kind of heavy metal. (I'm not keen myself;  I much prefer a nice classic rock)  They also ruled that it was alright for Muslims to eat cheese. (More cheese Gromit?)

But they could not make up their minds about Botox. Now they have come down against it, amidst fears that it contains pig products.

Never mind, they can always follow the advice here, and use this.
