What is an e-Cigarette, or Vaping? e-Cigarettes are not similar to traditional cigarettes in that you have to burn tobacco to smoke. When you exhale an e-Cigarette, vapor is produced. The vapor quickly disperses into the air, therefore having no lingering effect and won’t settle into clothing or fabric.
How do they work? e-Cigarettes use a small rechargeable battery that heats up an atomizer. The atomizer is located between the mouthpiece/flavor cartridge and the battery. The atomizer heats up the liquid, or as we call it e-Liquid, that is in the flavor cartridge, thus creating the vapor that is inhaled.
What ingredients are in our e-Liquids? Liberty Vapor e-Liquid contains four ingredients, three of which are food grade* and Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our e-Liquid contains:
- Vegetable glycerin* (VG) 50%
- Propylene glycol* (PG) 50%
- Nicotine (Caution: nicotine is known to be addictive)
- Natural and artificial flavoring*
Vegetable Glycerin (VG), used in food and beverages, VG serves as a humectant and sweetener and helps in preserving foods. The VG used in our e-Liquid is also approved for use by the United States Pharmacopeia Convention (USP).

Propylene Glycol (PG) is used as preservative in food products, as well as being one of the primary ingredients in e-Liquid. PG is GRAS by the FDA. The PG used in our e-Liquid is also approved for use by the United States Pharmacopeia Convention (USP).

Some people may experience an allergic reaction to Propylene Glycol, which can cause minor respiratory irritation such as coughing or scratchy throat. For that reason Liberty Vapor also offers a selection of 100% Vegetable Glycerin e-Liquids for consumers that prefer their e-Liquid without Propylene Glycol.
