Answer

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

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

In principle, if there are no Haraam ingredients in the products in reference, then it will be permissible for one to use such products. However, if there are any Haraam ingredients in the products in reference, then it will be impermissible for one to use such products.

You may contact the manufacturer and enquire about the ingredients and decide from that. Alternatively, you may contact your local Halal certifying Organization or Darul Iftaa who will advise you whether the product is Halal or whether it contains Haraam ingredients.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
