Diacetyl is a common flavor component that many brands use and which has been in the news quite a bit recently. Diacetyl is generally found in milky, vanilla-type flavors. It’s actually a natural extract that provides these distinct flavors. However, it has been found to have a negative health impact when inhaled over long periods of time. This is why we never put it in our products!
Other flavor components with potentially adverse health effects include Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl. These are chemicals that can give an e-liquid a pleasant buttery flavor and are common in many other brands. However, they adversely affect respiratory health (lung irritants) and we do not use them in our products.
Diethylene glycol (DEG) can often be found in lower quality PG; It has been proven to be harmful to your health when vaped. Because we use only very high-quality raw materials, our products do not contain DEG, but we routinely test for the presence of it in every batch to ensure the highest quality.
We pay very close attention to the latest research on e-liquid ingredients and their potential health effects. As new information comes to light, we incorporate those findings into our methodology and our recipes to ensure that vaping LIQUA is as safe as possible.
