Is it OK to use skincare products which contain urea?
الجواب حامداً و مصلياً
In the scenario mentioned, if the said skincare products contain Urea which is made synthetically, as is normally the case, its usage is permissible on the condition that there is no other prohibited ingredient present in the cream such as animal fats etc.
However, if the cream contains urea derived from haram sources such as parts of impermissible animals, then it must be avoided except when prescribed for the purpose of medicinal treatment, when other suitable treatments are unavailable. And Allah knows best.
