can you carry toppik/dermmatch on a flight?

Not only do I not see why there would be a problem, last September I took a bottle of toppik that I bought from the ISHRS annual scientific meeting on carry-on. Since neither dermmatch nor toppik are liquid, you shouldn't have any issues.



toppik is not a liquid, but it does look like gun powder to me icon_smile.gif did they check the toppik when you went through?


I am not a doctor. The opinions and comments are of my own.

Yeah I definitely had thought about this the first time I traveled with Toppik. Like Latin said it does look like Gunpowder and I doubt it's something that these security check people probably see often.


Fortunately though I've never had an issue and I've traveled with it many times as carry on and checked in with my luggage. I definitely worried more about carry on. I take the medium size bottle and just included it with all the other bath stuff.


I'd love to hear someones story if they did get pulled aside for it though. Having to tell/show them it helps hide my bald spot might be kind of embarassing :-)

I am currently on business overseas and carried my Toppik on the plane. Security had no issues with it. This is the 10th time or so that I have brought Toppik onto a plane without issue.
