From what you have read on the e cig review pages here you can no doubt tell that e-cig-reviews is not a fan of the vast majority of eliquids in the UK, simply because of purity and flavour. Read our full review on the best eliquids in the UK. Currently there is NO proper regulation of e liquids so finding the best e-liquid is not straight forward. TPD goes some way to establish minimum standards for quality and safety and includes maximum e liquid volumes and strengths, packaging requirements and prohibits the use of some ingredients eg. caffeine, taurine, colouring. Further studies are needed to ensure any ingredient in e liquid is safe when vaped at such high temperature and that manufacturers list ALL ingredients. Some e liquids have been known to contain harmful ingredients like diacetyl – ensure your e juice is diacetyl and diketone free! So is there a safe way to vape? On the whole the ingredients and manufacturing process is not controlled or transparent.
There are very few eLiquids available in the UK that are both clean and transparent and that make you the consumer aware of all ingredients. eLiquids are not all made in a controlled pharmaceutical environment with full ingredients listed. You are not made fully aware of what you are inhaling and so are not aware if the e liquid is as safe and clean as possible. The vast majority of eLiquids do not have fully listed ingredients and therefore you can not tell if your eliquids are pure, clean and shown as safe. TPD regulations effective in 2017 take the first steps in ensuring eliquids will become safer in the future.
Verify Your e-Liquid Ingredients!
E-Liquid companies boasting “100% made in the UK” or “best flavours” or “best quality e liquid” must be able to back these statements up with full lab testing evidence and full ingredient transparency. It it not acceptable to present a whole range of eliquids, tell us how good they taste, the discounts, the next day delivery or the free postage …. and then hide or not disclose what exactly is in the eliquid – does it contain diacetyl! Telling us their eliquids are organic and made from delicious food grade ingredients or food flavourings does not tell us what else might go into the ingredients. Like saying a cake is made in the UK from finest flour. It may have the finest flour in it – but that’s not all it has in it!
With the plethora of e liquids available what sets the best eliquids from the rest – how do you choose your e Liquid? Surely a safety first approach must be considered. There are many reports available that demonstrate the potential dangers of using run-of-the-mill e liquids, the vast majority of which do not disclose fully all ingredients.
ECOpure’s VPure, ECOvape and V2 Platinum e liquid ranges are from companies where their e-Liquids are manufactured in proper laboratory environments, tested clean e-Juice. Gourmet eliquids. They do not import generic e-Liquids to simply re-label or re-brand them. Full details of all e liquid ingredients are disclosed.
Whether you are looking for the best tobacco e liquid flavour to vape in order to replace smoking or simply the best shisha pen e-liquid flavours to enjoy vaping – you will find a safer cleaner e-Juice from these manufacturers. Match your cigarette brand to an e-Liquid flavour – Marlboro Gold is similar to Sahara e-Liquid.
ECOpure e-Liquid is simple and has only three flavours.
ECOpure has now been replaced by the organic VSAVI ECOvape VG e-liquid with a full range of flavours – see the Pure E-Liquid Shop for details.
This e-liquid is made in proper laboratories and fully tested. The VSAVI EcoVape e-Liquid brand is 100% VG e liquid and most suitable for those wanting extreme vapour production or who have a reaction to PG e-liquid. In July 2105 Vype changed to a new range of PG based e-liquid including vPure e-liquid, Ecovape has now re-branded to VSAVI.
EcoVape Pure Virginia Regular Tobacco VG e-Liquid: Nicotine strengths 0%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8%: fuller, more rounded tobacco taste for a truly satisfying ‘smoking’ experience.
EcoVape Classic Virginia Rich Tobacco: Nicotine strengths 00%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8%, classic distinctive tobacco flavour
EcoVape M Tobacco: Nicotine strengths 0%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8%: a softer milder tobacco flavour
EcoVape Arctic Menthol VG eLiquid: Nicotine strengths 0%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8%: distinctive refreshing flavour. It is clean and pure with a cool minty taste.
The ECOpure VG e-liquid range has now been replaced by the VSAVI range of pure organic e-Liquid and this range has been extended to include a good range of flavours!
Your best option if you need pure clean 100% VG e Liquid is to try their sampler pack of flavours to establish your favourite e-liquid taste and then fine tune the strength to your liking. VG e liquid can sometimes have less of a throat hit but produces more vapour than PG e-liquid. Strengths of PG and VG are not directly comparable as they are absorbed at a different rate into the body so it is not necessarily the case that 2.4% VG feels stronger than say 1.2% PG e liquid.
