Checking ingredients of hair removal cream

Fatwaa ID: 1212

Question:
As-salaamu ‘alaykum

Do we need to check the ingredients of hair removal cream ensure it is halal? These creams are meant to be washed off very soon after applying, around 5 minutes.

Jazakum Allahu khayran

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

In principle, it is not permissible to use anything that is impure or haraam. This prohibition is applicable as well to things applied externally. Accordingly, it will be necessary to ensure that the hair removal cream is free from all impurities and prohibited items.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
