Used cosmetics present some serious health and safety concerns because the products and applicators used to apply them often come into direct contact with the body. This is why we generally don't allow the sale of used cosmetics on eBay. The sale of new cosmetics is generally allowed on eBay, as long as sellers comply with FDA regulations.
See the What are the guidelines section for details about what you can and can't sell.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
For more information on the sale of cosmetics, both used and unused, visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
We urge our buyers and sellers to follow all federal and state laws and regulations. Because sales of used cosmetics are prohibited by law, regulated, or may cause harm to eBay or its members, we don't allow sellers to list these items unless they meet our specific guidelines.
