Understanding eliquid, vapor liquid, vape juice.
The vapor liquid, eliquid, vape juice (all of these names refer to the same thing) that fills the cartridge / tank / vapor cigarette is usually made of Propylene Glycol (PG) & Vegetable Glycerin (VG). Both are approved by the FDA for use in food. However, Food Grade is far less pure. The following information is based on actual USA made liquids and may not be correct for the lesser and overseas brands, including inaccurately labeled "Made In USA" brands.
For example, Food Grade PG is only 21% pure. We go beyond the basics and use only Pharmaceutical Grade PG (99.5% pure) and our VG is also 100% pure. Since nicotine is the most critical for a smoker, we use a true 100% USA Pharmaceutical Grade Nicotine.
Unfortunately, not all vapor liquids are created equal. A lot of brick and mortar retailers sell low grade liquids made from overseas due to incredible margins, profit and a lack of education. In addition, most overseas manufacturers have no concern for health and safety. For them, its about the highest amount of profit from the lowest bidder. Most of these brands cut costs by using a nicotine grade that is intended for pesticides.
As soon as the FDA begins to enforce their proposed rules (vapor liquids as a whole are not approved by the FDA), its our hope that most of low grade products will not be legally allowed into the USA. A lot of these companies and retailers have had since at least 2009 to do the right thing, most simply prefer profits over your health and safety.
Now that I understand the basics, I want to know more.
Propylene glycol (PG)
is a clear, colorless liquid with the consistency of syrup. It is practically odorless and tasteless. It is hygroscopic (attracts water), has low toxicity and outstanding stability, as well as high flash and boiling points, low vapor pressure, and broad solvency. These properties make PG ideal for a wide array of applications.

NOTE: Non USA sourced and low purity grade (food grade, etc) PG may have very different properties and could have harmful results such as allergic reactions and more. If you do not choose our products, it's best to seek out 100% USA sourced manufacturers with the highest purity grades (ie. "Pharmaceutical Grade").
Vegetable Glycerol (also called glycerine or glycerin)
is a simple polyol compound. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. Glycerol has three hydroxyl groups that are responsible for its solubility in water and its hygroscopic nature. The glycerol backbone is central to all lipids known as triglycerides. Glycerol is sweet-tasting and generally considered non-toxic.
NOTE: Non USA sourced and low purity grade (food grade, etc) VG may have very different properties and are often accompanied by a foul odor. If you do not choose our products, it's best to seek out 100% USA sourced manufacturers with the highest purity grades (ie. "Pharmaceutical Grade").
Natural and artificial flavors are defined for the consumer in the Code of Federal Regulations. A key line from this definition is the following: "a natural flavor is the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional."
Artificial flavors are those that are made from components that do not meet this definition. (Source: Scientific American)
