Frequently Asked Questions
What is Propylene Glycol?
Propylene Glycol is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is tasteless, odorless, and found in everyday products such as food, medical vaccines, cosmetics, medicine, hand lotions, shampoos, theater fog and cleaning supplies. PG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
What is Vegetable Glycerin?
Vegetable Glycerin is a carrier fluid used to hold the nicotine and flavor in your e-liquid. It is odorless and commonly used in the food and cosmetic industry. Vegetable Glycerin is an organic compound produced from vegetable oil. VG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
VG is classed as a carbohydrate for food purposes. VG is hypoallergenic, and is found in allergenic soaps, cosmetics and other products. VG naturally has a sweet taste, and though it is a carbohydrate, it does not have a drastic effect on blood sugar, and can be safely used by those who require insulin.
What is the difference between PG & VG?
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both carrier fluids that hold the nicotine and flavor in your eJuice, and are both odorless and tasteless. PG is thinner than VG, and is more easily vaporized by the atomizer.
PG produces a stronger “throat hit”, and more effectively carries the flavor during vaping. VG is a more viscous liquid, and has a slightly sweet taste; it is used in foods for this purpose. In addition, it produces more vapor than PG.
What blend do you use in your E-Liquid?
NicVape uses a 50/50 blend PG/VG in our Retro, Origins and Tradewinds e-liquids. We use a 30/70 blend of PG/VG in our Wildside line. Our Camouflage E-Liquid Collection is MAX-VG. Drops E-Liquid Collection is a 50/50 PG/VG blend.
How long before my order ships?
Complete online orders typically ship in 1 to 3 business days Monday-Friday. Any order placed over a weekend generally ships out by Tuesday the following week. You will receive an order confirmation immediately at the time of purchase, plus a notification when your product leaves our warehouse. Holidays and extreme weather may cause a delay in shipping fulfillment. Wholesale Customers can expect a 5 to 10 day business day turnaround to ship.
Are there countries you can’t ship nicotine to?
Currently, we are unable to guarantee that shipments of nicotine to Canada or Brazil will pass through customs. Note: International regulations vary from country to country and are often vague. So please check the laws pertaining to your country before ordering nicotine from us, as we cannot be responsible for orders seized in customs.
Do you have Coupon Codes?
Yes, we have different coupon codes available throughout the year for specific promotions. Frequently, our company Facebook page will also have special sales and coupon offers.
My e-liquid has slightly changed color since I ordered it. Is it still safe to use?
Yes, your e-liquid is still safe to use, even after a slight color change. E-Liquids change color due to oxygenation, extreme temperature changes, or exposure to sunlight. This is a harmless process that does not affect the safety, vape-ability, or quality of your product.
What is the base used in E-Flavors flavor concentrates?
E-Flavors are formulated in a base of PG (propylene glycol) to maximize shelf life and flavor transfer.
