Organic E-Liquid Guide For Aussie Vapers

All around us, our bodies are being pelted by various chemicals – from the food we eat, the air we breathe, and even the clothes we wear. For this reason, more and more people are opting to “go organic.”

For us vapers, we don’t really think about whether our e-juice is organic or not. After all, scores of studies have shown vaping to be less harmful than cigarettes. Even so, maybe we can “soften the blow” so to speak by using organic e-liquid instead.

Before we jump into organic e-juice, we must first understand what regular e-liquid is all about.

What is E-liquid?

Most vapers know that e-liquid is composed of three main parts: Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG), flavoring, and nicotine (if applicable). While the ratio for each ingredient varies (with some having zero nicotine, while others having zero flavor as well), these three are universally regarded as the main ingredients of most e-liquids.

Propylene Glycol (PG)
100 %

PG IngredientPG is a by-product of petroleum. While this may sound alarming at first, know that PG is safe to consume and has been in fact used by many as a food additive.

In e-liquids, it is used to give users a significant throat hit and is known to carry flavors well. However, there are a number of vapers who are allergic to PG, and thus have no choice but to use max VG e-juice.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
100 %

VG IngredientVG on the other hand, is derived from vegetable oil, making it the best e-liquid base for organic e-juice. It is more thick in consistency than PG, produces more vapor, has a smoother hit, and has a slightly sweet taste to it.

As with PG, VG is safe to handle and ingest, and is being used in many everyday products such as soap, toothpaste, and as a sugar replacement. VG may not carry flavors as well as PG, though its ability to produce more clouds make it much more popular among vapers these days.

Flavoring concentrates are made from the same chemicals used to flavor food. However, these are usually synthetic and there are some cases where people are allergic to certain flavors (though this can also be attributed to the PG used in some flavors). Nevertheless, flavoring is generally safe to consume as well.

Nicotine
100 %

NicotineLast but not least, we have nicotine. While nicotine is also a naturally occurring substance, there are some instances where synthetic nicotine is used as opposed to the kind that is naturally extracted from tobacco leaves.

Lab-produced nicotine has been known to cause allergic reactions to some vapers, and most of the time, when they do, they either quit vaping and go back to smoking, or use e-liquids with less nicotine content.

 

What Makes Organic E-Juice “Organic”?

organic vs natural e liquidLooking at the main ingredients of e-liquid, one might be quick to assume that organic vape juice is simply a cocktail of VG, natural flavors, and tobacco-derived nicotine.

However, even if a bottle of e-liquid is made using these ingredients, “natural” does not automatically mean “organic.”

For e-juice to be organic, there must be no traces of artificial additives in it. This includes dyes and preservatives.

Also, when it comes to VG, the vegetables used to derive it from must be grown without using pesticides and the like. Same goes with the tobacco leaves used for extracting the nicotine.

Organic Tabacco in e juiceWith flavoring, no artificial coloring should be used and these should be derived from real fruits and food stuff. As with nicotine, if any plants are used to extract flavors, these should also be free from pesticides and not GMOs (or Genetically Modified Organisms).

Before anything is labeled as “organic,” it must be certified that the ingredients used are grown by an organic-certified farmer.

Don’t be fooled and get easily taken in by something labeled as “natural and organic,” always make sure it’s not false advertising by checking if it has been truly USDA-certified as organic.

USDA-Certified Organic E-Liquids

USDA Organice e-liquid

What does USDA-Certified Organic E Liquid Mean?

Quality Assurance International (QAI), one of the primary USDA-accredited organic certifying agencies, inspects and approves every aspect of the USDA-certified organic nicotine, from the raw materials, to processing, handling, extraction, and even the facility and equipment utilized.

 

Why Organic E-Liquid?

If you’re conscious about what you put into your body, then organic e-juice is the way. It’s pure, clean, and free from any harmful additives. Some might scoff at the idea of e-juice being organic, thinking that it only applies to food and drinks, but remember that vaping is still a means of putting something into your body, albeit inhaled rather than ingested.

Some people may not care less about taking anything organic, but if you often get allergic reactions from your e-juice, you may want to try it out anyway.

You may be allergic to PG or artificially produced flavors and nicotine. It’s hard to pin down what you are actually allergic of really. by going organic, you open the door to pure, unadulterated vaping bliss, without the need to worry if what you just inhaled may be bad for you.

Or, you can just satisfy your curiosity and check out what the deal is with organic e-liquid. Who knows, you just might enjoy it.

 

That said, below are the top three organic e-juice makers in the market.

Should You or Shouldn’t You?

Many people swear by the health benefits of eating organic. Will it be the same when it comes vaping? It’s going to take years before the full effects and benefits of vaping organic e-juice show. It may be as dramatic as finally putting an end to “is vaping safe” debates, or as subtle as breathing easier in the long run. While the verdict is still out, it won’t hurt to promote an all organic lifestyle that includes vaping.

E-juice is all around us now, and we aren’t really sure how they’re made or from what they’re made from. Especially the ones imported from China. By going organic with the companies above, you know for sure how their e-liquid is made, where the ingredients are derived from, and that they are USDA-certified. Even if their products are not organic, the transparency of the manufacturing process itself makes them all worthwhile to check out.

So should you or shouldn’t you? The choice ultimately belongs to you.
