Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a non-toxic, viscous, odorless, colorless, and sweet liquid used in varied application. Cosmetics, food flavorings, and ice cream. VG is often made from coconut or palm oil, by heating it to a high temperature under pressure with water. The solution is then purified via distillation. VG is what produces most of the visible vapor or “cloud” on exhale.
Propylene Glycol (PG) is used to dilute the thickness of VG liquid. PG produces the “throat hit” smokers are used to, helping people who are trying to quit smoking cigarettes by allowing them a similar sensation.
The FDA allows propylene glycol to be added to a large number of processed foods, including ice cream, frozen custard, salad dressings, and baked goods. For e-juice purposes, propylene glycol also serves as a great “carrier” or solvent for flavorings as it bonds with the flavor molecules more effectively than VG – giving a much richer flavor.
E-Liquid Flavoring start with using flavor concentrates. We have natural flavoring, artificial flavoring, and also a mix of both natural and artificial flavorings. The natural flavors found in e-liquid contain absolutely no artificial ingredients, additives, colors, or sweeteners. Artificial flavors are simply chemical mixtures that mimic a natural flavor. The natural and artificial flavoring mixed concentrates are just that. A mix of natural and artificial flavor concentrates.
Nicotine is found in most e-liquids in various milligram levels mixed with other ingredients of e-liquid: VG, PG, and concentrated flavorings. By varying in milligram strength, consumers have the option to both approximate their current habit and then to eventually wean themselves down or even off of nicotine completely.
