The New TSA Powder Ban and What it Means for Your Makeup Bag

June 26, 2018 2 min read

tsa ban on powders

What Happened

Last July there was a foiled plot to blow up a plane in Australia. The attempted attackers planned to use an improvised explosive device on a passenger plane but, thankfully, the device was retrieved at the check-in desk before the attackers could board their flight.

How it Impacts Travelers

As a new preventative measure, the Transportation Security Administration added powders to their list of carry-on limits. The current list includes liquids, gels, creams etc. and now powders like baby formula, protein powder, and cosmetics powders are being added to the ranks as a TSA-banned products list.

What Does This Mean for Your Travel Beauty Bag?

Well, not a whole lot.

While many news outlets are causing panic over the new rule in regards to your cosmetics, the impact is actually very minimal. The official TSA website says powder-like substances greater than 12 oz / 350 mL in a single container must be placed in a separate bin for X-ray screening.

Almost all compact powders are well under the 12oz / 350mL/g range. In fact, most brands sit around the 7-12g range.

Paying Attention to Cosmetics Sizes

While you may still be tsa-approved, you should still look into downsizing your makeup bag for travel, if you are thinking of becoming a frequent flyer. Makeup bags are big & bulky; in fact, the average beauty collection takes up 20% of your carry-on suitcase space!

While the TSA Restrictions may not have a huge impact on your makeup bag, this might be a great time to rethink the makeup products you pack and freshen up your packing skills and cut down on bag space.
