What goes into e-Liquids? How are e-Cig liquids made?

e-Liquid, e-Juice Facts


As a charter member of American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA), we take a lot of pride in our e-Liquids!

Aside from food-grade flavorings, the main components of e-liquid, and our HV Big Heart Flavors, are USP certified propylene glycol (PG) and USP certified vegetable glycerin (VG). PG and VG have been in long use in a variety of products. PG is used as a solvent in many pharmaceuticals including oral, injectable and topical formulations, as well as being a food additive and emulsification agent, among other applications. VG is used in pharmaceuticals and is likewise a humectant. In foods it is also used as a sweetener.

Additionally, nicotine is often a component in e-liquids, though many people prefer to order flavors without nicotine. We only use the highest quaility nicotine and our ingredients are sourced from the United States.

For a good primer on e-Liquids, check out Wikipedia's article on “electronic cigarettes,” with links to descriptions of the above mentioned components.

HV Big Heart Flavors are hand-mixed and made from high-quality, domestically-sourced ingredients.  We make all our e-Juice to order, which means it arrives fresh on your doorstep.  Never trying to be the rock bottom-est of fine e-Liquid purveyors, HotVapes symphonizes all our tinctures with pure Love -- it's right on our bottles! -- yet is best evidenced by the yumminess in every drop.
