Cosmetic products that contain alcohol


Is it allowed to use beauty products (i.e body creams etc) that contain alcohol.


Praise be to Allaah.

It is safer not to use beauty products that contain alcohol, because of the difference of opinion as to whether intoxicating substances are naajis (impure) or not. If one is forced to use them and the amount of alcohol contained is very small, then it is OK, in sha Allaah.
