E-liquid manufacturing is the core of the Vaping industry, many manufacturers operate overseas Malaysia, China, USA and some European countries. The UK has many manufacturers that create their own bespoke e-liquids including ourselves here at Liquidable.
E-liquid is created from the following components.
- VG (Vegetable Glycerine) A clear, odourless sweet tasting liquid derived from vegetable fats.
- PG (Propylene Glycol) A clear almost odourless and faintly sweet tasting liquid which is homogenous when mixed with VG. PG is a carrier of substances such as flavourings or nicotine.
- Flavourings: There are tens of thousands of flavours available in E-liquid form, these could be flavourings that are 10 individual compounds mixed to create a base flavour.
Most flavours are PG based. Be mindful if purchasing flavours that you are buying PG variants and not VG variants. Make sure to use a recipe calculator online when creating your e-liquid.
Nicotine is an optional ingredient when creating flavours, some people prefer to not use nicotine. Nicotine usually comes in MPG formulation, (Mono propylene glycol) another fancy way of saying PG based. Nicotine will usually come in a pre-mixed formulation in the UK for consumers. This will be in the form of a 10ml bottle with 18mg (or something similar) Nic Shot written on the side of the bottle.
You use these nicotine shots in your large bottles. Remember, 18mg Nic shot into a 50ml bottle will make the overall e-liquid a 3mg strength. 2 Nic shots into a 100ml bottle will make your e-liquid a 3mg base. Always ask store owners or for advice online about adding nicotine to your e-liquid creations.
Always ensure you are using the best food-grade soluble concentrates when creating e-liquids and don’t be afraid to ask for advice from the vendor you are purchasing goods from.
