AVOID GLYC­ERIN

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - LIVING -

Mois­turis­ers, hand sani­tis­ers, de­ter­gents and even soap can raise a red flag if you’re swabbed by an ex­plo­sive de­tec­tion de­vice at the air­port. Many of th­ese prod­ucts con­tain glyc­erin and this is one of the sub­stances that ex­plo­sive de­tec­tion de­vices scan for. False pos­i­tive read­ings hap­pen all the time and se­cu­rity per­son­nel should be aware there are many prod­ucts that can falsely trig­ger a red alert but pose no dan­ger – but you can ex­pect to be grilled.
