Shampoos which contain sodium laureth sulfate

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Almost all the shampoos have sodium laureth sulfate. I have read a few articles, they say it is haraam to use laureth sulfate. What should I do? Is it really haraam? If yes, then there are no available smapoo which does not have laureth sulfate in it in my area. Also tell me the reason why it is haram?


A: We are not a halaal certifying body. In these matters you may refer to Sanha.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
