Can You Bring Deodorant on a Plane?

Posted By Raw Sugar on October 18, 2022

When you're planning a trip, you have a lot to think about. Where will you stay? What will you eat? What sights will you see? What activities will you participate in? All these questions can be fun and exciting to answer, but there is one that isn't quite as pleasant to consider: what will you pack?  

Packing for a trip can be overwhelming. You need to consider what the weather will be like, what you'll be doing, where you'll be dining and what the local customs and traditions are. For those flying out of U.S. airports, you also need to factor in the rules regarding what you can and can't bring on a plane. After all, no one wants to get held up at the security screening line due to a bag check or undergo the embarrassment of having something confiscated by U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents.

Unfortunately, TSA rules can be confusing, particularly when it comes to beauty and personal care products. One question that you may have when you're filling your toiletry bag is, "Can I bring deodorant on a plane?" The answer isn't a simple yes or no, but we'll explain it thoroughly in this post to help you pack for your next trip.

Can you take deodorant on a plane? 

It depends on the size and type. TSA deodorant rules allow you to bring the following types of deodorant onboard in a carry-on bag no matter the package size:

  • Stick or solid deodorant
  • Powdered deodorant
  • Crystal deodorant

For the following types of deodorant, the answer to the question, "Can I take deodorant on a plane ride?" is yes, but only if the package size is 3.4 ounces or less:

  • Spray deodorant
  • Gel deodorant
  • Liquid deodorant
  • Cream deodorant
  • Paste deodorant
  • Roll-on deodorant

If you're bringing along any of these types of deodorants, you must place them in a clear, zippered, quart-size, single-use plastic bag along with all the other liquid, cream, spray and paste toiletries that you're packing in your carry-on. Each passenger is only allowed one of these toiletry zippered bags. Before going through the metal detectors and x-ray machine, you'll place this bag in a plastic bin along with your shoes, electronics and other items to allow for easy inspection.

Can You Bring Deodorant in a Checked Bag?

Yes, you can bring deodorant in a checked bag. The TSA deodorant restrictions only apply to carry-on bags. If you plan to check your luggage, you can pack any type of deodorant. There are no limits on the size or number of deodorants you can place in checked baggage.

What Size Deodorant Can You Take on a Plane?

You can bring full-size deodorant if it is stick, solid, powdered, or crystal. However, you need to stay under 3.4 ounces for spray, gel, liquid, cream, paste, or roll-on deodorant. Raw Sugar Deodorants are in stick form, solid, and aluminum free deodorant, so it fits TSA deodorant requirements—you can bring any size on the plane.

How Big of Deodorant Can I Bring on a Plane?

There aren’t any size requirements for stick, solid, powdered, or crystal deodorants. However, stay under 3.4 ounces for spray, gel, liquid, cream, paste, or roll-on deodorant. 

Can You Bring Raw Sugar Deodorant on a Plane?

Raw Sugar Deodorant is ready to travel anywhere. It is a solid stick aluminum free deodorant, so the TSA doesn't require you to add it to your toiletry plastic bag or place limitations on the package size. This means you can just tuck it away in a convenient spot in your carry-on to use on your trip.
