What Are Our E-Liquids Made From?

What Are Our E-Liquids Made From?

What's in the UK's Best E-Cig

We all use e-cigarettes everyday, but do you know what's in them? Most people know how it works, the e-liquid vaporizes in the refill of the e-cigarette or the tank of the vaporizer. This creates the vapour that you inhale, mimicking the traditional smoke from cigarettes. But do you know how your liquids are made or what's in them?Today we are looking at the most important aspect of the e-cigarettes, the liquid.

 

What Is E-Liquid?

The fluid that fuels electronic cigarettes, known as e-liquid, is what provides you with all the nicotine and the flavouring that you bought the e-cigarette for. The base ingredients of the liquid are what creates the smooth flavour. We then combine them with natural and artificial flavours, creating the flavours you know and love. It’s this solution that makes e-cigarettes far safer to use than their traditional counterparts. This is because it contains less chemicals, none of which are toxic, and is 95% less harmful for you.

Normal cigarettes can contain over 4,000 added chemicals that can wreak havoc on those who smoke them. Studies have linked these chemicals to cancer and a host of other illnesses.  In contrast, SMOKO electronic cigarettes contain only four ingredients, all of which are pharmaceutical and consumption grade.

 

The Ingredients

The four main ingredients that SMOKO does allow in our products are nicotine, flavouring, propylene glycol and glycerol.

Nicotine – Of course e-cigarettes contain nicotine. This ingredient is the reason that people smoke  after all. But it’s important to note that nicotine isn’t what causes cancer in smokers of cigarettes. It’s all the chemicals cigarette companies add. At SMOKO you can choose the amount of nicotine in your e-liquid, selecting "light", "medium", "regular" or "bold". Perfect if you’re trying to cut down or working towards a smoke free life.

Propylene Glycol (PG) – This man-made liquid is used in cake mixes, salad dressings, soft drinks, popcorn, fat-free ice cream and sour cream and as a result has been thoroughly tested to ensure it’s safe for humans by various independent bodies and authorities, such as the CDC in America. The PG carries the flavour and nicotine as a base so it vaporizes better.

Vegetable Glycerine (VG) – Vegetable Glycerine is used in a range of everyday items too, including sweets and gum. It’s colourless, odourless and non-toxic. Like the Propylene glycol it carries the the nicotine and flavourings by being the base.

Flavouring – The varied and great tasting flavours of e-cigarettes is what many smokers love about the product. These chemicals are also used as flavourings for food, don’t leave an aftertaste and have been approved for human use for years.

 

Different mixtures

Most e-liquids then will have the same four ingredients, but they are not all made the same. Different e-liquids will have different mixes of the Propane Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine (VG). The mixture of these effects how much vapour is made and how much of a throat hit you feel. For example if you have a liquid that has more VG then it will have a smoother feel and more vapour. However if you have more PG you will get a stronger throat hit and less vapour.

In our e-cigarettes we have a 80% PG and 20%VG mix.  We made it so you have same amount of vapour as you would get from a cigarette and a strong throat hit. This helps it feel more real, and a stronger throat hit makes sure that all your cravings are satisfied.

 

The Danger of Cheap E-liquids

However, not all e-liquids and electronic cigarettes are made the same! A recent study by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that “75% of flavored electronic cigarettes and refill liquids contained Diacetyl, a flavoring chemical linked to cases of severe respiratory disease including Popcorn Lung”.

This is understandably worrying to people, as the main reason that many made the switch to e-cigarettes was because it was healthier. The good news is that this only really applies to those extremely cheap e-cigs on the market. Mainly it's the brands that had all their e-liquids made in China for as little as possible. SMOKO however only uses the highest quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that are DEG, diacetyl and acetyl propionyl free and are all Made in the UK!

SMOKO offer an extensive range of flavours to suit anyone’s taste including Original Tobacco, Virginia Rolling, Havana, Mint, Absinthe (liquorice), Apple, Coffee, Energy (like your favourite energy drink), Strawberry Mint and Raspberry. With so few ingredients in e-liquids, users can satisfy their cravings safe in the knowledge that they’re not consuming a cocktail of harmful chemicals.

 

So if you are looking to switch from cigarettes to a healthier alternative and want the best electronic cigarette with the best e-liquid in the UK, SMOKO is offering a free electronic cigarette starter kit – simply pay for the Postage and Packaging and taste it for yourself.
