I have checked the ingredients of some toothpaste products of the brands Dr. Haushka, Aquafresh, Colgate, Mentadent P, Sensodyne, Close-Up, Earthsap and Vogel. All of these contain sugar alcohol in the form of either sorbitol, xylitol or both. Is it permissible to use such toothpaste?


A. It is not permissible. Alcohol is haraam. Besides alcohol, these western kuffaar products usually contain considerable other forms of haraam and mushtabah muck. Use Miswaak. There is nothing better than Miswaak for dental health and for gaining Allah’s Pleasure. Miswaak, in fact, is beneficial for body health in general. The greatest benefit of Miswaak according to the Hadith is that its regular user will die with Imaan.

Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol with a sweet taste which the human body metabolizes slowly. It can be obtained by reduction of glucose, changing the aldehyde group to a hydroxyl group.Wikipedia


Xylitol /ˈzaɪlɪtɒl/ is a sugar alcohol used as a sweetener. The name derives from Greek: ξύλον, xyl[on], "wood" + suffix -itol, used to denote sugar alcohols. Xylitol is categorized as a polyalcohol or sugar alcohol.Wikipedia
