‘Non smokers pick up vaping’


There is no evidence so far that suggests that e-cigarettes are acting as a route into smoking for children or non-smokers. All of our messaging and information is developed to help people when making the decision to make the switch. We also work under the Challenge 25 act for any purchases made.


‘E-liquid is full of harmful chemicals’


Do you know what’s in a cigarette?! 4000 chemicals, 60 of which are known to cause cancer. At VPZ, there’s no scary unknown chemicals. We manufacture our e-liquids on-site with just 3 food grade ingredients and optional nicotine. This is done in our state of the art production facility, or, we vet our suppliers thoroughly and only work with trusted and tested manufacturers. All of our liquids are all registered through MHRA and each go through the strict testing and registration process. 


‘Vaping is worse for you’


From an expert independent evidence review published by Public Health England the current estimate is that e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking.[1] Half of the population don’t realise that e-cigarettes are less harmful. Help us spread the news and tell your family and friends! 


‘Vaping doesn’t help you quit smoking’


We disagree, as they say the proof is in the pudding! Almost all of the 2.9 million adults using e-cigarettes in Great Britain are current or ex-smokers, most of whom are using devices to help them quit smoking or to prevent them going back to cigarettes.[3] Plus our fully trained staff will give you ongoing support to help you on your journey.
