Some things which are said to contain pork derivatives

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I read in the newspaper that there are pork derivatives in cosmetics (such as lipstick), soaps, capsules containing medicine and other things. My question is, what should I do? Should I stop using rouge, creams and shampoo even though when I read the list of ingredients I cannot tell what the source of these things is?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about some leaflets which say that some soaps are made from pork fat, what do you think? He replied: 

The basic principle is that everything that Allaah has created for us on this earth is halaal, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“He it is Who created for you all that is on earth”

[al-Baqarah 2:29]

If someone claims that this is haraam because it is impure etc., then he has to provide proof. But there is no basis for believing every conjecture or everything that is said. 

Liqa’ al-Baab al-Maftooh, 31/20. 

For more information see question no. 26799, 13466, 26861 

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
