Our E liquids and testing

Ever wondered how clean the E liquid is you are vaping?

All our materials for creating E juices are from the highest of standards purchased from world leading manufactures that produce these materials for the E liquid market.

Before the materials are sent to us at bestcigliquid, they are first checked and tested for any impurities. Each batch is clearly marked, labelled and batched - we can track any of our materials from date of manufacture to testing.

We keep records of every bottle sent out from bestcigliquid by using a unique batch number found on each bottle. This special batch number will tell us everything we need to know about what materials are inside, how when and why - and everything in between.

All of our E liquids are mixed on the day of purchase; this means all materials used are fresh and ready to be vaped on that day. Steeping may be required to bring out the best of the juice but everyone is different.

To keep all your e liquid the same consistency, we only use soft 6 ml or 12 ml bottles with our orders. All of these bottles have child resistant caps, tactile warning labels, ingredients, warning symbols, contact details and other useful information. Also, each bottle is individually vac sealed to preserve the E liquid and prevents tampering.

All of this happens in a clean laboratory based in the Manchester science park. It’s a purpose built clean room specifically designed for E liquid production. The lab is where all our orders are mixed and sent from, all staff has the necessary clothing and protection and obviously first class experience and training.

To top it all off, we have regular batch testing from a leading testing lab based in the UK, from this we can continually check the quality of the product used.

What is the difference between vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol?

Vegetable glycerin is a natural organic glycerol made from vegetable oil, normally coconut and/or palm oil. The oil is heated to a high temperature under pressure with water. The glycerin separates from the fatty acids and is absorbed by the water.  The glycerin is then isolated and distilled to obtain the pure product. Food-grade vegetable glycerin is 99.7% pure, with water being the remaining 0.3%. Vegetable glycerin is used for medical, pharmaceutical, and personal care products, for food additives and preservatives, and for some e liquids.

Propylene glycol is a synthetic organic glycerol made from propylene oxide, a petroleum byproduct. It has a wide range of uses from chemical additives and solvents to medical, pharmaceutical, and personal care products to food additives and preservatives, and is used in many e-liquids. Propylene glycol is considered “Generally Recognized As Safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Polyethylene Glycol 400 (PEG 400), another synthetic organic glycerol, is a low-molecular-weight grade of polyethylene glycol that comes from the ethylene line of chemicals. It has numerous uses similar to propylene glycol and is also used for e-liquids.

Vegetable glycerin has the consistency of syrup and is usually more viscous than propylene glycol or polyethylene glycol. Some vegetable glycerin based e liquids are mixed with propylene glycol or polyethylene glycol to reduce the viscosity while others are mixed with water or alcohol.

How much nicotine is in e-liquid?

The nicotine content in e-liquid is measured by the number of milligrams of nicotine per millilitre of liquid. So 18 mg/ml means there is 18 milligrams of nicotine for each millilitre of liquid. The amount of nicotine can be controlled in e-liquid. Some e-liquid is also available without nicotine added.

How does the nicotine in e-liquid compare to the nicotine in tobacco products?

The nicotine in e-liquid is extracted from tobacco. It is accurately measured then added to a liquid base. The e-liquid is heated into a gas or vapour then the vapour is drawn into the mouth. Some people inhale the vapour into their lungs while others just blow the vapour back out of their mouth. Nicotine is absorbed by body tissue, enters the bloodstream, crosses the blood-brain barrier, and reaches the brain.

It is difficult to measure the amount of nicotine in tobacco products or more importantly, how much enters the body. The amount of nicotine absorbed by the body from tobacco depends on many factors. The types of tobacco, the additives in the tobacco, whether the tobacco is burned and the smoke is inhaled (cigarettes, cigars, and pipes), if the tobacco is placed in the mouth (chewing tobacco), or if it is taken in the nose (snuff).

In the case of smoking tobacco, the nicotine in the smoke travels through the rest of the unburned tobacco before reaching the mouth. Some of it is absorbed in the unburned tobacco. Some will be trapped in the filter of a filtered cigarette. The amount of nicotine absorbed in the body will increase as the tobacco product burns down.

In the case of chewing tobacco or snuff, the nicotine is absorbed directly from the tobacco and consequently, the nicotine level is much higher than smoking.

What do they use to make flavoured e liquids?

Since the FDA has not approved any e-liquid for consumer use, there are no regulations for flavourings or additives in e-liquid. Many flavourings in e-liquids are various food flavourings and/or additives. While most have been approved by the FDA for human consumption in the composition of a liquid or a solid, many have not been approved for human inhalation in the composition of a gas or vapour.

Will using e-liquid help me to stop smoking cigarettes?

The use of e-liquid in electronic cigarettes has not been approved for use as a smoking cessation device. Electronic cigarettes are an alternative nicotine delivery system and/or replace the physical action of smoking a cigarette.

Is using e-liquid with your portable e-cig vaporizer healthier than smoking cigarettes?

Smoking cigarettes has been determined by numerous organizations including the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cause death. Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer and other types of cancer, and it causes coronary heart disease which is the leading cause of death in the UK. While e-liquid has not been determined to be healthy or even safe to use, e-liquid has not been officially determined unhealthy or unsafe to use. E-liquids, like all tobacco products, contain various additives. It is up to the consumer to choose their e liquid wisely.
