Nicotine Pouches

Nicotine pouches also called white snus or snuff, come from Scandinavian tradition. Currently, nicotine pouches are classified as a harm reduction product and gain and more recognition. Although manufacturing and sale of traditional brown snuss are prohibited in the EU, white snuss sale is not banned at all.

Nicotine salts

In short, nicotine salts are an alternative form of nicotine for e-liquid and snus production. Nicotine salts occur in a form of powder/crystals due to its chemical structure, are more biocompatible to the human organism. They provide strong and long-lasting nicotine satisfaction levels with decreased harshness to the throat while vaping.

2. Nicotine pouches pH stabilizers

Potassium Sorbate PS-1000

Potassium Sorbate PS-1000 – a preservative that protects against the growth of mold and yeast, known as E202. It is one of the safest additives in food, cosmetics, and medicines. Non-toxic. It shows low activity up to pH = 6 – using it in such conditions is still profitable, however, it is most effective up to pH = 4.4. Potassium sorbate is a derivative of an unsaturated fatty acid and can therefore undergo oxidation. Therefore, it is combined in products with antioxidants that protect against changes in its properties.



Name: Potassium Sorbate PS-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 24634-61-5
Appearance: white powder or granules
Purity: 99,0 – 101,0 %
Self life 2 years if unopened
Suggested storage conditions: Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area.

Sodium Carbonate SC-1000

This compound has the consistency of white, crystalline, hygroscopic powder. It dissolves very well in water. In the environment, it occurs naturally in soda lakes and in the ash of sea plants. The food industry uses Sodium carbonate as a raising agent, stabilizer, and acidity regulator. Under special conditions, thanks to the release, sodium carbonate causes loosening of the product and maintain the appropriate pH level.



Name: Sodium Carbonate SC-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 497-19-8
Identification according to Regulation 231/2012/EC
Appearance: colorless crystals or a white, granular or crystalline powder
Other name: Disodium carbonate, soda ash, E500(i)
Purity: ≥ 99,5 %
Shelf life 1 year if unopened
Suggested storage conditions: Store in original, properly labeled, tightly closed containers, in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Protect against humidity (lumps).

Sodium Bicarbonate SBC-1000

An ingredient with many properties and a wide range of applications, also in the cosmetics industry. It increases the pH of products, at 50°C it decomposes, which manifests itself in the formation of abundant foam, which is the basic ingredient of bath balls that softens the water. Sodium Bicarbonate has moisture-absorbing properties. The cosmetics industry uses Sodium Bicarbonate in oral hygiene products, removes plaque and carious bacteria, whitens teeth. It also absorbs unpleasant odors. Adsorbent, pH regulator. Filling substance.



Name: Sodium Bicarbonate SBC-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 144-55-8
Other name: Sodium bicarbonate, E500(ii)
Appearance: white flakes, crystals or crystalline powder
Shelf life 2 years if unopened
Suggested storage conditions: Store in sealed packages, dry covered rooms.

Sodium Alginate SA-1000

pH stabilizer – has thickening and moisture-retaining properties have the ability to soothe irritation and redness. The FDA and the FAO / WHO Expert Committee recognize sodium alginate as a safe food additive. It is obtained from the seaweed washed up on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. It is white to slightly yellow fibrous to granular, tasteless powder. Swells easily. An ingredient that binds moisture in the epidermis and cosmetic substances, hygroscopic. At a slightly acidic pH, it thickens and clarifies watery formulas. Used for example in styling hair gels and gel kinds of toothpaste, face masks, but also in many other cosmetics. It prevents phase separation in emulsion formulas and reduces viscosity. It is film-forming, protects, and moisturizes.



Name: Sodium Alginate SA-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 9005-38-3
Appearance: white to slightly yellow fibrous to granular powder
Other name: Sodium alginate, E401
Purity: 90,8 – 106,0%
Shelf life 2 years if unopened
Suggested storage conditions: Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. Avoid heating above 30° C for a long period of time.

3. Nicotine pouches moisturizers/stabilizers

Propylene glycol

PG is the best base for flavor distribution and mixing with other components. It delivers the best possible flavor in snuss production and at the same time moisturizes the product. Therefore if you are looking for that perfectly delivered flavour in your snuss propylene glycol is the one to go for.

Vegetable glycerine

It is a colorless and thick organic compound that acts as a solvent for liquid nicotine or serves as a great base for flavor mixing. Because of low toxicity and dense consistency, you can use vegetable glycerine at higher ratios in snuss whenever you want a smoother product consistency and better moisturization. Vegetable glycerine is a natural alternative for snuss users allergic to PG.

Gum Arabic GA-1000

It owes its wide application to its thickening, stabilizing, and emulsifying properties. You can find Gum Arabic in almost all confectionery products (mainly cocoa and chocolate) because it prevents sugar crystallization and combines the ingredients, which guarantees the right consistency. Medicine uses Arabic gum as a shielding agent in mucous membrane inflammation and as an auxiliary raw material in the pharmacy recipe.



Name: Gum Arabic GA-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 9000-01-5
Other name: Gum Arabic, acacia, acaciadealbata gum
Shelf life 3 years if unopened
Suggested storage conditions: Keep containers tightly closed in cool, dry and well-ventilated area.

4. Nicotine pouches additives

Sometimes a concentrated flavouring alone is not enough to get the desired effect. That is why Chemnovatic offers a series of most common additives for taste enhancement. Moreover, for flavoring production, we use only top-quality ingredients to improve your recipes.

Xylitol X-1000

Xylitol is a sweetener of natural origin that comes from birch. It is an ideal replacement for sucrose because it tastes and looks like regular sugar. Moreover, it has a low glycemic index IG: 8. It can be used by diabetics. It will also be appreciated by those who would like to lose some weight and those who care about health, all thanks to its low caloric content (40% fewer calories than white sugar). Xylitol is widely used in the food industry, while in the production of snus it is used as a sweetener.


Name: Xylitol X-1000
Identifier (CAS no.): 87-99-0
Appearance: white crystalic powder
Purity: 98,5 – 101,0 %
