What is Propylene Glycol?
Propylene Glycol is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is tasteless, odorless, and found in everyday products such as food, medical vaccines, cosmetics, medicine, hand lotions, shampoos, theater fog and cleaning supplies. PG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
What is Vegetable Glycerin?
Vegetable Glycerin is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is odorless and commonly used in the food and cosmetic industry. Vegetable Glycerin is an organic compound produced from vegetable oil. VG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
VG is classed as a carbohydrate by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for food purposes. VG is hyper allergenic, and is found in allergenic soaps, cosmetics and other products. VG naturally has a sweet taste, and though it is a carbohydrate, it does not have a drastic effect on blood sugar, and can be safely used by those who require insulin.
What is the difference between PG & VG?
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both carrier fluids that hold the nicotine and flavor in your eJuice, and are both odorless and tasteless. PG is thinner than VG, and is more easily vaporized by the atomizer and cartomizer.
PG produces a stronger “throat hit”, and more effectively carries the flavor during vaping. VG is a more viscous liquid, and has a slightly sweet taste; it is used in foods for this purpose. In addition, it produces more vapor than PG.
What blend do you use in your E-Liquid?
We use a 65/35 blend PG/VG in our Gypsy House Line.
