Any containers over 100 ml/100 g (3.4oz) can be placed in your checked baggage in the appropriate packaging, as long as they are not prohibited items, or you can ship them separately.

Liquid restrictions outside the EU & U.K

Countries outside the EU might have different rules on carrying liquids as a transit or transfer passenger. You should check these rules with the relevant airports before travelling.
