The use of creams containing alcohol

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
if a person uses face cream/body lotion etc. that contains alcohol in the ingredients, will they have to redo wudhu/wash it off before praying the salah?

Answer
In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Cosmetic alcohols:As a rule, alcohols (as long as they are not sourced from dates or grapes) for external use in the form of medicines or beauty products are permissible. If they are for internal use then the ruling applied is: impermissible unless there is no suitable alternative. So yes, the alcohols mentioned would be permissible for external use.
