Most vaping devices use a mixture of nicotine and flavoring that a heating coil vaporizes to produce vapor. Generally, e-liquid contains Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG), nicotine, and flavoring. PG and VG act as the medium for the nicotine and flavoring to travel in and are available in USP food grade quality. Using pure ingredients in the manufacturing of e-liquid is critical to ensuring the health and safety of the consumer. If strict quality control practices are not implemented and followed, illness and injury become possibilities.
Using pure nicotine in a mixture of e-liquid is very important. Impurities in the nicotine can lead to off flavors in the final product. These impurities can also affect the consistency and performance of the atomizer. Impurities in the base nicotine can cause the atomizer coil to become caked with debris over time and produce poor vapor and flavor. Additionally, impure nicotine may be labeled at an improper strength level, causing the user to purchase a liquid that may be too strong for their liking.
Flavoring in e-liquids is another important area to consider. Using pure flavoring will ensure that the flavor can be reproduced accurately with each batch that is made. Impure flavoring additives will create wildly varying results from batch to batch, not to mention the possibility that some flavoring may be so tainted that it is completely unusable. Also, as with impurities in base nicotine, impurities in flavoring will ultimately lead to decreased atomizer performance and will also produce poor or off-flavors.
USP food grade quality Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin must be used in e-liquids to ensure the consumer is not inhaling unknown contaminants. These ingredients are used commonly in things like cosmetics and many medical personal care items as well as in e-liquids, so food grade quality ingredients are easily obtained. Taking care to use pure PG and VG will result in the final product being produced properly.
To conclude, taking the extra steps to make sure pure ingredients are used in the production of e-liquid will always produce a superior product. That is why we use a pure nicotine base, we make sure the flavoring additives are clean and pure, and we always use USP food grade PG and VG.
