Juvenile human foreskin

Fatwaa ID: 912

Assalam alay Kum Mufti Saab, someone sent me this
A friend of mine purchased a face serum that contains juvenile human foreskin. is that allowed?

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

In principle, due to the honor bestowed upon humans beings, it is not permissible to use or derive benefit from human body parts. This includes things that are discarded from the body as well, such as the foreskin. The sanctity of human beings is applicable to people of all ages. Accordingly, it will not be permissible to use the face serum in reference. It must be returned or discarded.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
