Vuse NZ - What is eLiquid?

E cigarettes have been around for a while now, but not everyone is clear about how they work. Especially when it comes to the vapour that’s inhaled while using an E cigarette. We’ve put together this basic guide to eLiquids so you can understand exactly what’s involved.


What is eLiquid?

What is eLiquid

The fluid inside each vape pen is usually called eLiquid or vape juice. It’s this liquid that delivers the nicotine and gives the vapour its satisfying flavour.

Here’s how it works - when you puff on a vape pen its battery generates energy which heats up the eLiquid, turning it into a vapour as you inhale.

 A major benefit of eLiquids is that they’re available in different flavours and nicotine strengths, so you can choose what works best for you.


What are the main ingredients used in Vuse eLiquid?

What is eLiquid

All Vuse eLiquids are made from the same five ingredients: vegetable glycerine (VG), propylene glycol (PG), flavourings, nicotine and water.  Different flavoured eLiquids contain different flavourings and some are made without water. Otherwise, the only variation is the quantities of each ingredient used.


What nicotine strengths are available in the Vuse range?

Our eLiquids have been specially developed for the ePod 2. They’ve also been formulated to offer a satisfying vaping experience with a range of different nicotine strengths on offer.

The nicotine strength of our eLiquids and flavour cartridges are clearly marked on each pack. We have two different strengths for our Vuse ePen: 1.1% (12mg/ml) and 1.6% (18mg/ml).

Our Vuse ePod flavour range comes in 1.6% (18mg/ml), 3%(34mg/ml) and 4% (47mg/ml) strength.


What makes Vuse eLiquid a quality product?

We take a huge amount of care and research into every eLiquid we make.

- We only use high-quality ingredients in our eLiquids
- We assess every single ingredient and every single material
- We test each batch of eLiquid to ensure it is traceable and tamper-proof
- We enforce strict manufacturing processes and quality controls

    What is nicotine salt and what is the benefit?

    You might have heard the term nicotine salts, which have revolutionised eLiquid science. But what are they?

    Essentially, nicotine salts are what allow vape users to closely mimic the practice of smoking.

    Nicotine occurs in nature in a number of plant varieties but it’s strongest in the leaves of the tobacco plant where it exists in a salt form.

    At Vuse, these nicotine salts are recreated in eLiquid form by adding a special ingredient – Benzoic acid.  This organic product reacts with the nicotine to form a nicotine salt. The result is that nicotine in “salt” form is more stable and generally delivers a smoother throat sensation and greater satisfaction than the nicotine in regular eLiquids.


    Do Vuse pods contain Nicotine Salt?

    All Vuse eLiquid pods currently available for the ePod 2 contain nicotine salts. This means you get to enjoy all the benefits of a nicotine salt formula no matter which Vuse flavours you choose.
