Bio nicotine bases – a green alternative to PG nicotine bases.
Your typical nicotine bases consist of a mixture of Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and nicotine. PG is a petrol derivative and is widely used in various products (cosmetics, medicine, food industry etc.) because of its low cost and the fact that it is nontoxic.
In our bio nicotine bases, we have replaced PG with PDO (Propanediol, also known as Vegetable Propylene Glycol) – its natural equivalent which is manufactured from VG (Vegetable Glycerin). It is GMO free, renewable, sustainable and reduces CO2 footprint by 70% compared to PG.
Propanediol has the same characteristics as Propylene Glycol and some say, that it is the nicotine base of the future – reduces steeping time, is less viscous, allergen free and easier on the throat. Some of our customers have already moved away from PG and are using PDO in their e-liquids instead.
In our range of bio nicotine bases you will also find VPDO – a 50/50 mixture of PDO and VG, but we can manufacture nicotine bases in any ratio required by the customer. All our nicotine bases are 100% certified to confirm highest quality and purity.
