What does E-liquid Compose of?
E-liquid is the most important part of electronic cigarettes. The brands and tastes of cigarette oil are numerous, domestic, imported, American, and Malay... At least there are thousands of flavors. And when you smoke your favorite vapor juice every day and enjoy the satisfaction of taste buds, have you ever wondered what this wonderful liquid constitutes, and how do you have different tastes and unique flavors? Today Let us talk about the composition of the vapor juice.
In general, e-liquid uses base ingredients to create a smooth flavor. This base is composed of five major categories of raw materials. They are PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerol also called glycerol), flavors, nicotine, and taste improvement additives.
Most of our eLiquids have mixes containing 70% PG/VG 30% to 50% PG/VG 50%. PG and VG are combined with natural or artificial flavors such as vanilla or apple which creates unique and satisfying recipes.
1. PG(Propylene Glycol)
PG (Propylene Glycol), also known as propylene glycol, is a common drug and food additive. With hygroscopicity, slightly sweet, colorless, odorless, transparent liquid, with good fluidity. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines PG as "universally safe to humans." Of course, there is also a saying that PG is slightly toxic. As one of the basic components of e-cigarette oil, PG is mainly used as a carrier of fragrant oil to enhance the taste of smoke oil. After heating, it will produce a small amount of fog, with a certain sense of hitting the throat. Dilution of VG is also available to reduce the viscosity of the oil and facilitate the oil guiding effect.
Although PG is generally safe for the human body, a small number of people may still have unpleasant throats, phlegm, allergies and other side effects. These side effects are transient and mild, as long as you stop smoking or change the low PG content of smoke oil or smoke oil without PG naturally disappears. Smoke oils with high PG content generally have thicker textures, slightly stronger throat sensation, and a smaller amount of smoke.
2. VG(Vegetable Glycerin)
VG (Vegetable Glycerin), also known as vegetable glycerin or glycerol. Like PG, it is also a very widely used raw material in daily life. Careful friends take a look around the cosmetics, food, wine, and sugar. The ingredients on these packages are "propylene glycol, glycerol." Especially those who like to eat sweets, there is also a lot of VG intake. Most of these desserts contain cakes, biscuits, and other ingredients that contain VG. The main role of VG in cigarette oil is to generate fog.
VG will produce a lot of fog after heating. Generally, friends who use excessive smoke or drip nebulizer should know that if you want to increase the amount of smoke, you need to use product oil to add a lot of VG to produce the ideal smoke. VG is highly hygroscopic and very viscous. If the liquidity of a smoke oil is very poor, it is certainly a high VG ratio. This kind of smoke oil smoke is very large, the flavor is slightly worse, and the throat sensation is slightly weaker.
The role of flavor in vapor juice is very important. It's the soul of the smoke oil. It determines most ports of the taste of e-cig.The combination of different flavors, the ratio of the amount on a flavor of the e-liquid. For some special flavor of the smoke oil, the flavor formula is also very complicated. There are also some flavors, such as "mentha" which can create a feeling of touch the throat.
The main role of nicotine is to ease smoking and produce a throat sensation. And there is a certain role to enhance the taste of smoke oil. Some people talk about "Nicotine discoloration," and think nicotine is highly toxic. In fact, the smoke oil contains nicotine solution and the concentration is not high. Nicotine, which has been closely associated with "death" and "cancer" for nearly 100 years, has received a lot of new attention. Many experts have named it. It is believed that nicotine in cigarettes does not cause much harm. The real carcinogen killer is tar, and more than 4,000 toxic, harmful and even radioactive substances produced by the combustion of carbon monoxide and cigarettes.
Of course, the harm of nicotine to the body cannot be ignored. Therefore, it is best to gradually reduce the nicotine concentration of smoke oil, early withdrawal from nicotine dependence. The concentration of nicotine in cigarette oil is usually 0mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg. The higher the number, the higher the nicotine concentration per milliliter of smoked oil and the stronger the throat sensation. Of course, the entrance is more rampant. Concentrations that are too high can cough and can cause stomachache and dizziness. So if you use the e-cigarette, if the phenomenon mentioned above occurs, replace the low-nicotine smoke oil. Most people use 6mg of cigarette oil to feel the best and can meet their needs.
5. Taste improvement additives
Additives include sweeteners, sour agents, throat cleaners, deionized water (distilled water), and the like. The main role is to improve the taste of smoke oil, make up for the lack of flavor. For example, some flavors of cigarette oil are slightly bitter and sour, and sweeteners can be added to improve the taste. The role of deionized water is mainly used to dilute the VG. Some smoke oils are PG-free, and VG is very viscous, which can lead to poor oil delivery in some oil atomizers. In order to maintain the ratio of pure VG, deionized water was added to dilute the VG to improve the fluidity. Pure water, mineral water, and ordinary tap water are forbidden to be added to tobacco oil. Because these waters contain ions, and the ions are conductive, if you add smoke oil and then add it to the atomizer, a short circuit will occur and the equipment will not work. Deionized water and distilled water are not conductive.
The above is the composition of the ejuice. The raw materials used for good quality e-liquids should be food-grade, which means that they can be used as food materials. Some imported or domestically-exported e-liquids must pass the US FDA certification, which proves to be harmless to humans before they are allowed to be allowed. Sales. So buy as much as possible to choose large brands of cigarette oil, high integrity purchase of businesses. Some unknown smoke oils are best not to try, it is likely that the “black workshops” are blended with unqualified inferior raw materials, which is neither hygienic nor harmful to the body.
Through the above explanation, I believe that everyone has already understood the basic ingredients of cigarette oil. Produced by the regular manufacturers qualified smoke oil said food-grade raw materials, very health, and safety. The common ingredients that make up the smoke oil have already penetrated into our lives. The cosmetics and lipstick used by ladies include PG, VG, and flavors. Cakes, cookies, and various foods are also included. After clarifying the composition of the smoke oil, there is no need to worry too much about whether the components of the smoke oil are poisonous or harmful, and when you purchase the smoke oil later, you can choose the right smoke oil according to your needs, and it will not happen to buy the big smoke. High-grade VG smoke oil is used on the oil atomizer.
Of course, everything must be well-polished, and excessiveness is not good. Therefore, even if it is a very safe ingredient, it is recommended that you use as little as possible and do not use it excessively to avoid affecting the body.
