As more and more vape users aim to avoid propylene glycol (PG), the idea of 100% VG eliquids has an obvious appeal. There are many supposed 100 VG Eliquid Brands on the market, but making an eliquid requires a mixture of ingredients. While it would be amazing to have a flavorful e-liquid made entirely from VG, sadly that just is not possible.
Vegetable glycerin, commonly known as VG, is an odorless and naturally sweet liquid. It is formed by the reaction of plant fats with lye, which forms a fatty salt(soap) and VG. VG has been used in food, drinks, medicine, and cosmetic products for over a century. Allergic reactions to VG are rare, making it a perfect hypoallergenic option for e-liquids.
In eliquids, VG provides a natural sweetness. This means eliquids with high VG content do not require additional sweeteners. Vg also vapes at low temperatures, producing remarkably thick clouds of vapor. The naturally thick consistency of VG eliquids makes them perfect for cloud chasers using sub ohm vaping setups. Most brands combine VG and PG in various ratios to create their eliquids.
Propylene glycol’s main contribution to eliquids is its flavor retention. In fact, most liquid flavors used in e-liquids use PG as a base. Large percentages of PG can give eliquids a throat hit, which is a slight irritation to the back of the throat. This throat hit is valued by users who enjoy vaping for cessation purposes. PG can also irritate the eyes and skin in sensitive individuals. Because PG allergies can develop without warning, many vape users will start experiencing these symptoms without warning and need to pursue eliquids with low PG content
There are many supposed 100% VG eliquid brands, but this title is more of an ad technique than the truth. In fact, if you wanted a truly 100% VG eliquid, you would just be vaping flavorless sweet clouds. VG doesn’t hold flavor well, so it is extremely difficult to create VG based flavors for eliquids. Instead, PG based flavors are often the only option available for manufacturers.
Instead of 100% VG mixtures, most brands focus on creating max VG e liquids. While there is no official standard for what makes a mixture max VG, it is generally accepted that they should contain 90% or more VG by volume. The additional 10% is typically composed of PG based flavor additives and liquid nicotine if you enjoy nicotine in your eliquids.
