E-Liquid Ingredients


One of the main controversies surrounding the e-cigarette industry today is the oft-repeated “but we don’t know what’s in them” argument. A number of media scare-stories have made this train of thought quite common, with this fear being a big reason why people are still uncomfortable around e-cigarettes. Today, we’ll be talking you through exactly what is in our TRUVAPE e-liquid as we look to ensure you have all of the information available to you to make an informed decision on your e-cigarette opinions.


The first thing to note is that at TRUVAPE we only use pharmaceutical grade PG/VG and purest medical grade nicotine in all of our e-liquid. This, combined with the fact that our flavourings are natural extract-based, ensure your safety and peace of mind as you embark upon your vaping journey. The ingredients contained in our e-liquids are:



The majority of e-liquids on the market contain nicotine in a number of different strengths, most commonly topping out at 18mg, which means the liquid is 1.8% nicotine. Though some companies do stock higher strength e-liquids, here at TRUVAPE we believe that 18mg is strong enough even for the heaviest of smokers. You can discover more about e-liquid strengths here.

Nicotine is the main addictive substance in cigarettes and the reason people get addicted to them. However, it is not harmful on its own, with the chemicals found in tar the main cause of harm in tobacco cigarettes.


Propylene Glycol

This is one of the two ingredients which form the majority of the e-liquid. Despite the scary name PG is just a food additive which allows flavour to be carried. Generally, higher amounts of this will give a stronger throat hit but less vapour. Interestingly, PG is also used in asthma inhalers and the Nicorette Inhalator.


Vegetable Glycerin

VG is made from vegetable oil and used in a number of cosmetic products and as a sweetener. It is also used as a thickening agent and gives the vapour produced a richer, fuller feel. Liquids with a higher content of VG produce more vapour, which is why cloud chasers tend to purchase liquids which are high in this substance.


Natural Flavourings

We then add flavourings to our e-liquid to create that unique TRUVAPE taste. We use natural extract flavours that provide fantastic flavour without the need for lots of chemical additives.


These are the only ingredients found in our e-liquid. We hope this gives you a clearer idea of what is contained in our e-liquids and makes you feel more confident with switching to vaping.
