New to vaping and wondering what VG and PG actually are?
Well All eliquids are comprised of VG – Vegetable Glycerin, and PG – Propylene Glycol.
Both substances are considered extremely safe and non-toxic, and are commonly used in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
PG (Propylene Glycol) is an odourless, colourless liquid that is thin in consistency.
Its presence in eliquid provides the ‘throat hit’ which is often likened to the sensation of smoking, it also works as a flavour carrier for the liquid concentrates to deliver the delicious flavours you know and love.
VG (Vegetable Glycerin) is a derivative of vegetable oil and is also recognised as a safe substance for ingestion. It is used to thicken the consistency of ejuice so it is easily absorbed by the cotton inside your coils, which in turn when heated creates the denser vapour clouds.
ejuice higher in PG are recommended for smaller devices such as pods and MTL kits as being thinner means it can flow into the smaller coils easier.
Eliquids higher in VG however are more specifically aimed at sub ohm devices as they produce thicker clouds of vapour, this also works in the opposite to the PG base oil for smaller coils as the thicker liquid will hold better in a tank or device with a larger coil.
Most liquids come in a standard mix of 30pg/70vg.
At Switch2vape.co.nz, we only use USP VG/PG in our manufacturing facility to produce the cleanest eliquid.
