Safe Onboard: Hygiene Products You Can Carry on an Airplaine


Even before the new carry on restrictions, traditional hygiene products were a danger to anything else in your luggage. Rather than planning on double bagging and checking your bag, or buying sample sizes of your favorite products, consider alternate versions of your favorite beauty products. These products are formulated with minimal moisture and feature less additives, which also has the added benefit of taking up less space for the same amount of product. Make the switch to some of these products and reap the benefits while sailing through security during your next trip.

Bar shampoo has long been ignored in favor of liquid varieties, but new luxurious shampoo bars have recently gained popularity. By adding essential oils and natural ingredients instead of water and preservatives, companies make products which help your hair retain natural oils. Online you can find a variety of formulas, ranging from gentle formulas for dry hair to more stringent cleansers for those that have oily hair. The same herbs and essential oils that provided the cleansing properties of these bars also offer relaxing aromatherapy as you wash your hair.
