It's a flammable liquid isn't it? It's got no place on a plane, whether in your checked luggage or carry on.

Buy it here....much less hassle.

Specifically stated as a prohibited item on this BA page


At the very bottom of the page under "prohibited items" and then "Chemical"

Peroxide is a volatile oxidising agent that is explosive. While not flammable as such itself, it rapidly accelerates combustion in flammable materials that it comes into contact with.

As said there is no place for it on a plane and I think you will find it on the prohibited item list for any carrier.

Peroxide is readily available in Australia
