Is it permissible to use wet-wipes and moisturized tissue that contain alcohol?

Question:
 

I Would appreciate if you can advice me on wet-wipes that contain ethyl alcohol can we use it.

 

Answer:
 

Ethyl alcohol or ethanol is a synthetic type of alcohol that is not derived from dates or grapes. Provided that it is used externally or consumed for medicinal purposes only, it will be permissible. Thus, wet-wipes that contain ethyl alcohol will be permissible to use.
