Although there are no FDA approved e-liquids (yet), Vaporleaf uses only FDA and FEMA approved flavorings and flavoring ingredients in our in-house made e-liquids.
We DO NOT use PEG or Diacetyl in our eJuice.
We hold our juice to strict flavor and sanitary guidelines using cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) in our lab.
All 5 simple ingredients are food grade and pharmaceutical grade:
PG – Propylene Glycol
VG – Vegetable Glycerin
Natural and Artificial Flavors
What Are These Ingredients?
Propylene Glycol (PG) - PG is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration . The PG used in our eJuice is approved by the USP (United States Pharmacopeia Convention). It is used as a preservative in food and for tobacco products, as well as being one of the major ingredients of the liquid used in electronic cigarettes. It is also used in pharmaceutical and personal care products. Propylene glycol is a solvent in many pharmaceuticals, including oral, injectable and topical formulations, such as for diazepam and lorazepam that are insoluble in water, use propylene glycol as a solvent in their clinical, injectable forms. PG is also anti-microbial.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) - The VG used in our eJuice is approved by the USP (United States Pharmacopeia Convention). In foods and beverages, it serves as a humectant, solvent, and sweetener, and may help preserve foods. It is also used as filler in commercially prepared low-fat foods (e.g., cookies), and as a thickening agent in liqueurs. As a sugar substitute, it has approximately 27 kilocalories per teaspoon (sugar has 20) and is 60% as sweet as sucrose. It does not feed the bacteria that form plaques and cause dental cavities. It is added to icing (frosting) to prevent it setting too hard.
It is also used in medical, pharmaceutical and personal care preparations, mainly as a means of improving smoothness, providing lubrication and as a humectant. It is found in allergen immunotherapies, cough syrups, elixirs and expectorants, toothpaste, mouthwashes, skin care products, shaving cream, hair care products, soaps and water-based personal lubricants. In solid dosage forms like tablets, it is used as a holding agent.
Nicotine – the nicotine used in our eJuice is derived from food products, as well as tobacco, not synthetically produced and is both GCMS and COA tested.
Did You Know?
Nicotine naturally occurs in many common foods. Some of these foods include: tomato, potato, eggplant, peppers, and cauliflower. Research is being done on the benefits of nicotine, w hile no nicotine-derived drugs are available yet; many are in the development or testing phases. The variety of conditions being studied reflects the excitement felt in the scientific community for the potential of nicotine: anxiety, depression, Alzheimer's, Tourette Syndrome, ADHD, Parkinson's disease, diabetes and schizophrenia.
Sweetener – We use a liquid form of Sucralose to sweeten our eJuice.
Natural and Artificial Flavors – We use only food grade and pharmaceutical grade FDA approved flavorings in our eJuice.
