Sunscreen in haj

Question ID: 27925

. Maaf for this question but I have repeatedly directed this question to the SANHA site but have still not got an answer (there is none on the website either)

I know that I should have inquired about this years ago but it has only come to my attention later that cosmetics too can be haraam.

We are due to leave for haj insh allah in 2 weeks, and I would like to still use sunscreen etc while on the pilgrimage
. The question is : is the total effects range of oil of olay halaal or not (day cream with sunscreen, night cream and facial wash)

Shukran Jazeelan. Also I have just read on your site where someone had asked that if they are going with a different agent can they still join in with you and you answered in the affirmative. I pray that Allah wills you to go and that you will remember the whole ummah in your duas too. We are leaving with a Swedish group and hope to meet with you all once there
. May Allah accept all or efforts during the haj and may he accept all our duas and grant us all maghfirah
insha allah
. Ameen
. Wassalaam
