The Main Constituents Of Eliquids: Propylene Glycol And Vegetable Glycerin


The main ingredients of eliquid are nicotine, vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and flavoring. As a mixture, they are the basic ingredients filled into the e-cigaretes. Nicotine level is added according to the preference of the user. PG and VG are liquids that are filled into the clearomizers which are the containers that are fitted into the e-cigarettes towards the upper end. They are filled along with a combination of nicotine and flavor. On heating the liquid through the battery towards the lower portion of the e-cigarettes, the two fluids heat up and produce vapor that has to be inhaled. Though they heat up and dissolve into vapor they produce two different flavors when vaped. That is the reason behind using liquids added in different proportions according to the preference of the user. Sometimes they are taken in the ratio of 70:30 or 50:50 or in the ratio that is preferred by the user. If you are a first time user, choose the ratio carefully as per your equipment and your necessity.eliquid

Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol is also found in inhalers used by people affected by wheezing. They are also found in medicines and also in cosmetics like shampoo, make-up and other beauty products. Though propylene glycol can be ingested and is commonly used as a food additive, its long term effects are not known. It is said to cause dry mouth with increased thirst. Smokers who have left the habit of smoking tobacco and have joined the club of e-cigarettes may also find these symptoms. However those facing throat dryness can increase the use of vegetable glycerin which can cause less damage to the health.

Vegetable Glycerin

Vegetable Glycerin is a natural chemical that is extracted from vegetable oil. It helps to give a thick consistency to the vapor and has a sweeter taste than propylene glycol. It is usually found as a sweetener and also in cosmetics like deodorant, aftershave lotion, make-up and other beauty products. It is also used to give a thick consistency to medicines, pills, creams and jellies. They are also used in dental products like toothpaste.VG is found to not have any side effects and can be safe for use. However the thick consistency reduces the atomizer life and also clogs up the VG liquid coils. The smoothness of the VG fluid is smoothening to the throat and is used by users for its smooth consistency. The clearomizer tank is used in the e-cigarettes for vaping. The clearomizer tanks are Kanger Protank and the Mini Nautilius. The Sub-Ohm Tanks contain Kanger Subtank and the Aspire Atlantis and others too. You can also choose the e-liquid of your choice by choosing through multi-flavor recipes. You can also choose a combination to be made custom-made to your preference.


E-cigarettes have helped many to come out of tobacco usage and the diseases connected with it such as lung cancer. It has also helped to create a cleaner and smokeless environment.
