Vuse NZ - What is e Liquid? Ingredients & Nicotine Strengths Explained

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 e Liquids guide so you can understand exactly what’s involved.


What is e Liquid?

What is e Liquid

The fluid inside each vape pen is usually called e Liquid 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 e Liquid, turning it into a vapour as you inhale.

 A major benefit of e Liquids 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 e Liquid?

What is e Liquid

All Vuse e Liquids are made from the same five ingredients:

  • Vegetable glycerine (VG)
  • Propylene glycol (PG)
  • Flavourings
  • Nicotine
  • Water
Different flavoured e Liquids contain different flavourings and some are made without water. Otherwise, the only variation in our e Liquids are the quantities of each ingredient used.


What are the nicotine strengths available in the Vuse e liquid range?

Our e Liquid Pods have been specially developed for Vuse vape devices. 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 e Liquids and flavour pods are clearly marked on each pack.

Our Vuse ePod nic salt e Liquid flavour range comes in 1.6% (18mg/ml) and 2.5% (28.5mg/ml) nicotine strengths.

    Opting for the nicotine type that suits your vaping style can help you make the most out of your vaping experience. Unsure which one is right for you? Let’s explore Freebase Nicotine and Nicotine Salts to learn more about them.

    Freebase nicotine is a form of nicotine commonly used in the e Liquid or vape juice for e-cigarettes or vape pens. When nicotine is extracted from tobacco leaves, it converts to a “Freebase” state which means it’s nicotine in its base form. Nicotine as a Freebase is an alkaline, which can provide a harsh throat hit when vapourised, compared to Nicotine Salts.

    Nicotine salts are what allow vapers to closely mimic the practice of smoking. This is because 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 e Liquid form by adding an acid, typically Lactic acid or Benzoic acid, to Freebase nicotine. The acid 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 than the nicotine in freebase e Liquids.



    Vuse e Liquid pods for the Vuse Go Reload are only available in nic salt formulations.
