Are soaps, shower gels and shampoos that contain chemicals permissible to use?
Unless and until we know that a product is harmful or contains haraam ingredients, it will be allowed and deemed pure. Therefore it is permissible to use these products.
It is stated that,
کل ماعدم فیہ المدرک الشرعی للحرج فی فعلہ وترکہ فذلک مدرک شرعی لحکم الشارع بالتخییر
“If there is no ruling in Shari’ah on doing or not doing something then this itself is a proof that it can be done and left.”
[Musallamus Subut page 24]
Allah knows best.
