Question:

Is it permissible to use shampoo or body lotion containing alcohol?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Alcohol derived from grapes or from dates is impure and hence haram. If the source of the alcohol that is used in the shampoo and body lotion is derived from another product besides grapes and dates or synthetic, it will be permissible to use such shampoo and body lotion.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
