Using gold dust in an oil product


Assalamualaikum, wanted to ask you a quick question if possible. We’re a company who uses a small tiny amount of gold in our products as it has anti oxidant properties beneficial in fighting acne. I do not believe it’s enough to be considered an adornment. So for this reasoning, are we able to market our product to men or not?

In regards to the amount, its such a tiny amount that if we took it into our fingers then it would disintegrate.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

If the quantity is very minor and it is not known as Gold and dissolves in the oil, then there is no problem in applying or selling.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
