Regulated Materials Shipping Policy


Updated Regulated Materials Shipping Policy

It has been brought to our attention that industry companies may be out of compliance in shipping personal care products containing regulated ingredients such as alcohol. SnugZ USA takes this issue seriously and believes it is in the best interest of our clients and SnugZ to ship our products containing regulated materials in a compliant manner. In response, beginning July 5, 2011 SnugZ USA will begin shipping alcohol based hand sanitizers, insect repellant, hair spray and spot remover in compliance with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) requirements. These products are considered regulated materials for shipping purposes due to their alcohol content.

What SnugZ Products are "Regulated Materials?"

- All alcohol based sanitizers (including gels, sprays & wipes)
- Insect Repellant

What does this mean for you?

UPS Ground / FedEx Domestic/Canada Ground Shipments: NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES WILL APPLY TO GROUND SHIPMENTS SHIPPING WITHIN THE 48 STATES OR CANADA.

UPS Ground / FedEx Domestic Air Shipments: UPS and FedEx air shipments are considered any 1, 2, or 3 day shipment as well as ANY shipment going to Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii including ground shipments.
THERE WILL BE A $40.00 (Z) CHARGE PER BOX (not per order) FOR ALL AIR SHIPMENTS OF REGULATED MATERIALS. EACH BOX WILL BE SENT SEPARATELY WITH SEPARATE PAPERWORK.

UPS Ground / FedEx International Air Shipments: SnugZ USA is able to send products containing regulated materials outside of the United States as long as the country we are shipping to accepts regulated materials shipments. If you have questions regarding which countries accept/do not accept regulated materials shipments please contact the individual carrier (UPS or FedEx).

USPS (United States Postal Service): It is against federal law to ship prohibited materials via USPS. Alcohol sanitizer, hair spray, spot remover and insect repellant are PROHIBITED materials for USPS due to their alcohol content. It is necessary to choose another ship method for these products, including those shipping to APO, FPO addresses.
