Using Moisturizer on Shabbat

Using Moisturizer on Shabbat
Day: Sunday
Date: May 17, 2015
Parshat: Bimidbar
Yalkut Yosef: 327

It is permitted to use moisturizer on one's hands on Shabbat. One who's hands are dry to the point of cracking, may use moisturizer only if he regularly does so. However, if he does not use it regularly, he may not use it on Shabbat either. It is permissible to put perfume or cologne onto one's skin on Shabbat. However as mentioned previously (See DSH from Dec. 30, 2014) it is forbidden to apply it to one's clothes. It is permissible to put it on oneself even though it'll eventually rub off onto his clothes as long as his intention is not for the clothes.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
