Is a skincare product containing donkey milk halal?



In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind


It was said that ‘if a Halal animal only consumes impure things to the extent that it creates a bad odour in its meat and milk, then it will be Makruh to consume its meat and drink its milk’ (1). However, if it consumes other things along with the impure, or if it does not create bad smell in its meat and milk, then the meat and milk will be totally Halal.

There is no prohibition that I can see against external use, but it would be advised to avoid if substitutes are available.
