What qualifies as cosmetics

Cosmetics are any products used for personal care or to enhance or alter someone’s appearance. These include makeup products, hair dyes, face masks, lotions and many more products such as fragrances and perfumes. The majority of people use cosmetic products on a daily base and that is why so many people ship beauty products domestically and abroad as gifts for Valentine’s Day or Christmas presents.

Ship lipsticks, eyeshadows, foundations and lotions internationally

Maybe you want to send a high-end lipstick as a gift to your sister who lives in another city. Or you could be a beauty product manufacturer looking for the best courier to ship makeup samples to your customers.

What to consider when shipping cosmetics and toiletries in Europe and internationally

Companies and individuals can legally ship non-flammable and non-hazardous cosmetics products domestically and overseas. Just remember that liquid items are not recommended for shipping by mail or courier. That is why we advise you to carefully pack toiletries for shipping since insurance is not applicable in this case.
Cosmetics that include flammable substances or alcohol (e.g. nail polish, acetone, perfumes, colognes, aftershave products with alcohol) are not allowed for transportation within the EU and overseas unless properly packed and protected.

Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping cosmetics products in Europe or internationally. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. In case you decide to ship cosmetic products, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
