What Is In E-Liquid?

What Is In E Liquid
When it comes to vaping, there are a few essentials. You need a battery, you need an atomizer, and you need e-liquid. Of all the essentials, vapers are typically most familiar with e-liquid. Usually, hardware purchases are infrequent compared to e-liquid purchases. Buying e-liquid is the best part of vaping for a lot of people. Choosing a new flavour can be exciting, especially with so many flavours to experiment with.

As cool as e-liquid is, many vapers don’t really know what’s in it. That’s why we’re going to break it down for you. This is an in-depth look at all the ingredients found in e-liquid. In addition, we’ll be answering a few pressing questions posed by the vape nation about e-liquid. Without further ado, let’s jump into the explanation.

What’s in the E-liquid?

Most e-liquids have at least two of the following ingredients: vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine, and flavouring. Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol act as the base of the e-liquid, meaning they make up the majority of the e-liquid. Some e-liquids only contain one of the two, while others mix them in order to achieve a certain consistency or flavour.

Nicotine is the psychoactive ingredient contained in some e-liquids. It’s the same psychoactive ingredient found in tobacco. Most e-liquid utilizes a form of nicotine called freebase nicotine, which is typically manufactured in a lab. The last ingredient is flavouring, which is pretty self-explanatory. Without it, the vapour wouldn’t taste so great!

What’s the Difference Between Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin?

We now know that propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are used as the main ingredients in e-liquid, but what are they? Well, propylene glycol is a synthetic liquid. It doesn’t occur in nature. Like freebase nicotine, it’s typically made in a lab. On the other hand, vegetable glycerin is a natural liquid that’s extracted from various plants.

Vegetable Glycerin has a naturally sweet flavour, while propylene glycol is flavourless. A lot of people prefer the sweetness of vegetable glycerin, but it doesn’t suit every flavour. Sometimes, it can distort the flavour by making it too sweet. In this case, e-liquid mixers will add propylene glycol to dial sweetness back a little. Propylene glycol also tends to be a better agent for added flavour due to the fact that it has no flavour of its own.

Vegetable Glycerin produces thicker vapour than propylene glycol. For this reason, most cloud chasers prefer VG-dominant e-liquids. Mixing vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol can achieve the ultimate balance between flavour and vapour production.

A popular ratio that many vapers seem to like is 75% vegetable glycerin and 25% propylene glycol. It offers the thick clouds that you’d expect from a VG-dominant e-liquid without being unbearably sweet. Many vapers find that the flavour also tends to be better than that of e-liquids made with 100% vegetable glycerin.

Is There a Difference Between E-Juice and E-Liquid?

It goes by many names: e-liquid, e-juice, vape juice, vapour liquid, etc. But no, there’s absolutely no difference. They all contain the same base ingredients and mean the exact same thing.

How Long Does Vape Juice Last? Is it Bad to Vape Expired Juice?

Most e-liquid has a pretty long shelf life. Typically, the shelf life of a bottle of e-liquid is around four years. We’re not sure who’s buying e-liquid and vaping it four years later, but we’re here to answer your questions. There’s no evidence suggesting that vaping e-liquid past its shelf life is harmful. Depending on how it’s stored, the flavour of the e-liquid is likely not going to be drastically different. The expiration date is more of a suggestion.

Does E-Liquid Contain Nicotine?

Most e-liquids contain nicotine, but this isn’t always the case. E-liquids and e-cigs were introduced as an alternative to smoking, but since then the culture has evolved to include cloud chasing competitions and enthusiasts that sometimes build their own vape batteries (or mods). With the changes have come new e-liquid strengths, which provide a wide range that starts at zero (zero being nicotine-free e-juice). The variety of different strengths that are now available allows vapers to gradually reduce the strength of their e-liquid if they prefer, eventually reaching the point at which they vape nicotine-free liquid.

How Much is Vapour Liquid?

While the cost of e-liquid can vary widely, Vaper Empire premium e-liquids cost a little more than $10 per 10ml bottle. While it is possible to find less expensive e-liquids, the quality of the e-liquid may not be as high. We recommend only buying e-liquid from reliable, well-known sources that adhere to high standards in quality control. At Vaper Empire, all of our e-liquids adhere to EU standards and are made in multi-million dollar clean room facilities. We take the quality of our e-liquids seriously and so should you.

What is the Highest Nicotine E-Liquid?

E-liquids are available in several nicotine strengths. Most e-liquids top out at 24mg, although higher nicotine strengths aren’t unheard of. To many, 24mg e-liquid is too harsh to vape comfortably. E-liquids with higher concentrations of nicotine often utilise nicotine salts as opposed to freebase nicotine due to their smoothness.
