So, what exactly is in VPZ e-liquids?
Often we are asked the question ‘What’s in this e-liquid’ or ‘What are the main ingredients in e-liquid?’ So today we will be looking over just that!
Generally speaking, all e-liquids contain three main base ingredients: VG (Vegetable Glycerine), PG (Propylene Glycol) and natural or artificial flavourings. Nicotine itself is an optional ingredient that does not need to be included in the base mixture if it is not desired.
You may not believe it but making e-liquid can be a long process! Just like Mr Kipling creating a new cake for sale, everything needs to be measured, tested and approved before sale. We only want the absolute best sitting on our shelves here at VPZ!
Every one of our in-house eliquids runs through a purpose built, 6,000 square foot ISO Class 7 & ISO Class 8 clean rooms. The production team work tirelessly to ensure that all e-liquids produced use only the finest, high quality ingredients.
Take a sneak peek at the facility below!
Now, let’s take a look at those main ingredients shall we!
Propylene Glycol or PG is a synthetic organic compound, and is essentially there to help the whole liquid mix together properly. As it is flavourless it makes a great base for e-liquid as it will have little to no effect on the taste. The higher the amount of PG the thinner the liquid will become when mixed with VG. High PG e-liquids also provide minimal ‘cloud’ production. You’ll be happy to know that PG is also used as a food additive and preservative.
Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
Vegetable Glycerine or VG is an organic compound usually derived from; Palm, Soy, Coconut or Rapeseed oils. It is commonly found in foods, cosmetics and medicines. VG is there to give the e-liquid some thickness and smoothness, and also to help create that cloud of vapour that is produced.
Fun Fact : It’s pretty likely that you’ll have eaten, drank or used something that contains PG or VG. Maybe even in the last day or so, and you haven’t even realised!
All flavourings that we use are classed as GRAS, or “Generally Recognised As Safe” for human consumption. This is what gives the liquids their unique tastes; Bakery, Fruit, Tobacco, whatever it is that you are looking for, there is probably an e-liquid to suit your tastes!
Nicotine - Optional Ingredient
Nicotine is the part of the cigarette or e-cigarette that you’re actually addicted to. Nicotine on it’s own has been shown to be one of the least harmful parts of a cigarette. In basic terms, Nicotine first acts as a stimulant, then a mild relaxant. We offer our e-liquids in a range of different strengths to suit a variety of needs. However nicotine is a completely optional component, we also stock a HUGE range of Nicotine free e-liquids online and in all of our VPZ stores.
As always, remember to purchase your e-liquids and hardware from a reputable source - your local VPZ store.
