Products with alcohol

 

Assalamualaykum

Is it possible to use products that contain alcohol ? Products such as Johnson baby lotion, hand-wash washing liquid, perfume, make up etc.

 

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

 

Answer

 

If the alcohol used in creams, perfumes and deodorants are extracted from sources such as grapes or dates, then it will not be permissible to use.  Other than that, as is in most cases chemical alcohol is used, such products would be permissible to use. However piety is that even those are avoided. (Fatawa Haqqaniyyah p.199 v.5)
