The market of of the electronic cigarettes develops in an exponential way: More than one million of electronic cigarette users, 3.2 millions in GB and 9 millions in USA. The secret of these famous e-liquids is in the pleasure and the taste, and because the use of e-cigarette would be far less dangerous  and toxic than conventional cigarette.

To propose what is the best on the market, it is therefore essential to check e-liquids to answer the regulations in force. So Vanalyse realize controls on the contents of regulated compounds in e-liquids:

  • Propylene glycol, glycerol, polyethylene glycol or propane-1,3-diol
  • Nicotine
  • Cannabidiol, Cannabigerol

And soon :

  • Acrolein, nitrosamines
  • THC
