Is it permissible to use products containing alcohol?
  • Question:

    Majority of products that we use nowadays contain alcohol, for example, body creams, moisturisers, shampoos etc. so my question is, is it permissible to use these products, or are they nijs and we should avoid them?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Most cosmetic products are made from synthetic alcohol hence external use of these items are permissible and not considered impure. Caution would dictate the use of organic and or plant based products as an authentic alternative.

    And Allah knows best.
