What Chemicals Are In Your E-Cigarettes? The Shocking Truth

Last updated on June 22nd, 2023

What Chemicals Are in Your Ecigarettes?

Are Chemicals in E-Cigarettes Good or Bad?

If you have been wondering about the chemicals in e-cigarettes,
this article will answer many of your questions and concerns. I've compiled a list of the chemical ingredients along with the percentages. I also explain the properties of those chemicals, outline the reasons why they are used in the product and give you an idea of whether they are harmful.

All information was obtained from reputable sources including scientific reports. 

Do You Have E-Cig-Phobia?

Hundreds of thousands of smokers think about trying an alternative to smoking regular tobacco cigarettes but they're scared of dangerous “chemicals” or oils. The fact is, the most “dangerous” chemical in an electronic cigarette is nicotine… unless you choose a zero nicotine e-liquid. Nicotine is known to be an addictive substance, but it is the tar in tobacco cigararettes, not the nicotine that will kill you. 

If you're really worried about ingesting dangerous chemicals, don't drink beer, wine or water; or eat tuna, sardines or brussels sprouts because they contain arsenic, but that's not the trending story.

Here's where you can buy Diacetyl Free e-Liquids – Read on…

Vapers have lots of  questions about e-cigarette e-liquid chemicals oils, and supposed carcinogens.

Electronic cigarettes purchased from reputable sellers, contain both Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine. Neither of them are oils. Both are harmless, water soluble FDA approved ingredients. That's important information, if you are worried about inhaling PG or Vitamin E oil. 

Propylene Glycol was first approved in 1950 and then again in 1959 by the FDA for use in hospitals as an air disinfectant, because it was believed to have curative properties when inhaled.

Today, despite the fearful misinformation being broadcast about Propylene Glycol, we still happily ingest it in hundreds of foods, (including beer); use it in cosmetics and feed it to our children in the form of Gummy Bears.

Most of the misinformation about PG and other chemicals believed to be in e-cigarettes, originates directly, (or indirectly) from those who stand to lose from the success of a revolutionary product that replicates the smoking experience without the smoke, smell or thousands of chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes.  

If you guessed that those groups include the pharmaceutical industry and the tobacco industry, you're sharp. But then you chose to read this article, so there you go.

It's also interesting to note that members of many health organizations (as well as some elected officials) sit on the board of Big Pharma companies or have stakes in the tobacco industry.

The Truth About E-Cigarette Chemicals

There's now public information that leads to proof of obvious deceptions by health agencies who performed tests for dangerous chemicals in electronic cigarettes.  

“FDA methods have been lambasted in journals by some medical and health research experts who noted that potentially harmful chemicals were measured at about one million times lower concentrations than are conceivably related to human health.”

The good news is that the FDA has now admitted that regulations should encourage, rather than inhibit the development of innovative tobacco products, such as ecigs, “that may be less dangerous than cigarettes.”

So lets move on to answer the question…“What Chemicals are in E-Cigarettes?” 

Here are a few examples of the harmful chemicals suspected to be found in electronic cigarettes. 

  • Nitrosamine                  
  • Diethylene glycol                                
  • Diacetyl                      
  • Nicotine                                            

Early FDA testing showed that the above chemicals may or may not be present in e-cigarette vapor. But don't go tearing your hair out just yet.  Those chemical ingredients are listed below along with reasons why they are potentially, harmful.

#1- Nitrosamine –  Defined as a chemical compound produced from Nitrates and secondary Amines, Nitrosamines often occur in the form of proteins. They are not good proteins as they are highly acidic, and the human body doesn’t react well to anything highly acidic… but read on.

In large quantities Nitrosamine can cause cancer. Beside e-cigarette filters, Nitrosamines also occur in wine, beer, meat, cheese, tobacco, balloons and condoms. Happily, the risk of cancer is far less from the last two on the list. 

Wine and beer (which both contain a lot of nitrates) usually have soft “warning” on the label which plainly states, “contains nitrates”.  

It's interesting to note that tobacco products contain Nitrosamines, although the FDA did not make mention of it in the earliest reports against electronic cigarettes.

Some e-cigarettes do contain microscopic amounts of Nitrosamine; however, reputable e-cigarette companies including  VaporFi , and South Beach Smoke do not contain Nitrosamines. The above companies have undergone safety tests and do not contain any carcinogenic ingredients.

Moving on to #2 on the list – Diethylene Glycol
Compared to nitrosamine, dietylene glycol is far more lethal, but there's a lot more to the story. First….here’s the definition:

Dietylene glycol is an organic compound. It is a colorless, practically odorless, poisonous, viscous liquid with a sweetish taste. The original taste-tester of dietyline glycol must have had the digestive constitution of Andrew Zimmern. This noxious ingredient is widely used as a solvent and a humectant (meaning it keeps things moist). Dietylene glycol is used in making many chemical products including anti-freeze

Several years ago, when the FDA conducted tests on electronic cigarettes, they found minute traces of diethylene glycol, in 1 of the 18 e-cigarette cartridges tested and they revealed that it was at a concentration of much less than 1%. 

When the report was released, it fueled Pro-tobacco and pharmaceutical interest groups. They encouraged the media to give the report wide coverage.

The FDA’s “findings” resulted in banning sales by two electronic cigarette manufacturers. Similar testing was not performed on tobacco cigarettes even though there's more Diethylene glycol in tobacco products than in electronic cigarettes!

#3 on the list is Diacetyl 

A 2015 study made sensational headlines when it was reported that some e-liquids contained diacetyl, a chemical that could cause bronchitis obliterans, or “popcorn lung”.  

The now notorious study did not find diacetyl at harmful levels in e-cigarettes, and has since been debunked by research scientists including one of the world’s most renowned, Dr. Konstantinos E. Farsalinos. 

Source: http://www.ecigarette-research.org/research/index.php/whats-new/whatsnew-2015/236-da2

The tests were NOT performed using standard e-cigarettes; they were using modified high wattage devices designed to be more like miniature stage-type fog machines. 

Diacetyl has been known to cause bronchitis obliterans (popcorn lung) in microwave popcorn factory workers; hence the name. Out of the thousands of factory workers who were tested, only a tiny fraction of 1% (eight people to be precise) were alleged to have come down with bronchitis obliterans.

In other words, even if you breathe massive amounts of airborne diacetyl (thousands of times more than any vapor product could expose you to), all day, every day, for a decade or more, it's still overwhelmingly unlikely you're going to get “popcorn lung.”

The study never mentioned that tobacco has more than 100 times the diacetyl then the absolute worst e-cig (750 times the average one). Tobacco still isn't considered a risk factor for popcorn lung.

The Vapor Industry's Response

There was an extremely fast reaction on the part of e-liquid companies when the issues with flavorings containing diacetyl came to light. All companies either pulled the line that had that flavoring or reformulated those e-liquids. 

Here's Where You Can Buy Diacetyl Free e-Liquids

#4 on the list, Anti-Freeze has been said to be present in electronic cigarettes, but it is totally unfounded. Clever wording by the media linked diethylene glycol with Anti-Freeze because Anti-Freeze contains diethylene glycol. It’s far easier for people to substitute the word “anti-freeze” for the ingredient dietylene glycol when discussing the safety of electronic cigarettes, and that’s exactly what happened. 

Good Old Fashioned Nicotine

#5  Nicotine was another supposedly dangerous ingredient found in the cartridge filters of the electronic cigarettes. Although many e-cigarette companies allow e-smokers to choose whether or not they wish to inhale nicotine along with the water vapor “smoke”, the FDA only tested filters that contained this stimulant.

tobacco plant in Washington D.C.What nicotine is:

It is a nitrogen-containing chemical made by the flowering tobacco plant, Nicotiana tabacum. It may also be produced synthetically.

In the plant kingdom, the tobacco plant belongs to the nightshade family, which also includes potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and red peppers. They all contain nicotine but you're not likely to get jittery after a bowlful of mashed potatoes.

Nicotine can cause physical effects including increased heart rate and oxygen consumption by the heart muscle as well as powerful psychodynamic effects such as euphoria, increased alertness, and a sense of relaxation. Nicotine is an addictive substance.

The nicotine found in smoking cessation products is produced synthetically. 

What nicotine is not:

Nicotine is not a carcinogen, meaning it has not been proven to cause cancer. Nicotine is not a poison. Nicotine alone is not a highly addictive substance.

People think nicotine is a dangerous drug because it is associated with tobacco cigarette smoking which is dangerous to your health. 

Here's our article that contains new reports about nicotine.

Other Than Nicotine, What Chemicals Are In the Most Popular E-Cigarette Cartridges or E-Liquids?

Listed below, for your reading pleasure are the many flavoring chemicals found in e-cigarette cartridges and e-liquids. (If you've read this far I'm either a fascinating writer or you're seriously into e-cigarette chemicals).

Please note; the e-cigarette filter or e-liquid you choose will only contain the respective chemical for that particular flavor. Some e-liquids, like  Kind Juice have only organic ingredients, so they do not contain nicotine.

Acetylpyrazine 3%– A commonly used food flavoring used in beef, coffee, popcorn, potato chips, sesame seed, almond, wheat bread, cocoa, pork and beef.

Beta-Ionone 5% –  A food-grade fragrance used to give the vapors their fragrance and flavor. The chemical iscurrently being tested for prevention and treatment of colon cancer.

Dimethylpyrazine 2% –  Used in the creation and/or manufacturing of flavor concentrates of all types. Used in biological, drug, flavouring and perfumery industry .

Ethylpyrazine 4% – A flavoring concentrate used in food products such as pork and soups.

Glycerol 2% a/k/a/ Glycerine – Widely used in pharmaceutical formulations such as eyedrops and cough syrups and in foods such as cookies and liqueurs. Very low toxicity. Serves as a humectant. solvent, thickener and sweetener, and may help preserve foods. Glycerol is also used for an evaporative fogging agent as an alternative to Propylene Glycol in some solutions for electronic cigarettes.

Linalool 5% –  a naturally-occurring chemical found in many flowers and spice plants used in many commercial applications.

Flavoring essence from tobacco 15% – an extracted essential oil found in tobacco. (toxins in cigarette smoke come from the actual burning of the plant material).

Propylene glycol 1% – Used as a solvent in many pharmaceuticals and as a moisturizer in cosmetics and tobacco products.

Rose oil- 4% A natural extract of the flower used for it’s scent.

Orient tobacco absolute 30% – A food-grade fragrance.

Tobacco essential oil 5% – A food-grade fragrant oil extracted from the tobacco plant.

Trimethylcyclohex 2 butene 4 one 1% – Another food-grade fragrance used in combination to give the vapors an authentic tobacco flavor.

Trimethylpyrazine 2%  – An approved  flavoring used in caramel chocolate cocoa and coffee.

Vanilla extract 2% – An approved food flavor additive.

Pure water 13%

Recent Tests Regarding Inhalation of Ecig Vapor

In numerous scientific studies led by the aforementioned Dr. Farsalinos, it was shown that electronic cigarette use has “no immediate adverse effects on coronary circulation (blood and oxygen supply to the heart)”.

Source: http://www.ecigarette-research.com/web/index.php/research/127-no-adverse-effects

According to Farsalinos,

“No scientist has ever said that e-cigarettes are absolutely safe; however; current evidence overwhelmingly supports that they are by far less harmful that tobacco cigarettes. This is the most crucial issue and the most important information that every smoker needs and deserves to know.”


Test Shows Vaping No More Harmful Than Breathing

In September 2015, British American Tobacco teamed up with the MatTek Corporation scientists to test e-cigarette vapor and determine whether it was safer on human lungs than tobacco smoke. The results were not only in favor of e-cigarette vapor, they indicated that vaping is no more harmful to human lungs than air.

source: http://ecigarettenews.net/EcigsSafeAsAir

Former US Surgeon General Says Ecig Hysteria is Hazardous to Your Health

Also in September, 2015, The New York Post published an article by former US Surgeon General, Dr. Richard Carmona. The anti-tobacco advocate boldly cut through the controversy over e-cigarette safety by supporting Public Health England’s position that e-cigarettes are about 95% safer than tobacco. PHE is the first public body to declare its support for vaping.

In October 2017 former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb made this statement in a Washington Post interview:

New products and innovations have the potential to be a lot less harmful than combustable tobacco. We need to provide an alternative for adults who still want to get access to nicotine and electronic nicotine delivery systems of which e-cigarettes are a primary component.”


So…Are Electronic Cigarettes Safe?

The bottom line is that vaping is a far safer way to ingest nicotine and to satisfy the “hand to mouth” habit associated with smoking without the ingestion of the other 4000+ toxins, chemicals and carcinogens found in regular tobacco cigarettes. Are e-cigarettes a valid smoking cessation product? The FDA says not. Actually, to date, there has not been enough serious control testing to show that the product merits such a claim. There have, however been tests that show e-cigarettes are more effective at helping smokers quit than nicotine patches. 

When we begin to analyze the safety of smoking an electronic cigarette, we should ask ourselves not whether they are safe, but whether they are safer than tobacco cigarettes. What you need to do is to compare an electronic cigarette to a Marlboro cigarette.

If you're ready to try an electronic cigarette, I suggest you begin with one of the more reputable on-line companies. You can check out this e-cigarette comparison chart if you want to find the brand that suits your style and taste. They all have been independently tested for safety.


The scientific consensus behind vaping continues to strengthen with two separate studies – one in England and one in India – confirming that the devices are an effective tool for smokers who want to quit. Meanwhile other researchers found that despite previous alarmist claims, e-cig vapor causes no detectable damage to lung cells.

    Your opinionated analysis is very poor and has little to no information to why they are bad. Stating that some of the substances in ecigs are found in food is a very unreliable comparison due to the fact that eating and inhalation are two different processes.

      There are now scientific tests performed in England that show inhalation of ecig vapor is as safe as breathing air. It’s more dangerous breathing the air in big cities.

      Propylene glycol, one of the few ingredients in ecig vapor is used in asthma inhalers. It’s also an ingredient in Nicorette Inhalers, which are licensed as safe.

      While nothing we eat or breathe can be proven to be 100% safe, the scientific evidence in favor of vaping over smoking is overwhelming. Vaping saves lives. It’s unfortunate there is a war against ecigs by anti-tobacco lobbyist and pharmaceutical companies and the public is led to think vaping is just as dangerous as smoking when in fact it’s 95% safer.

    I’ve read oil from ecig gummed up a girls lungs and she died…can the oil in ecigs stick to lung tissue and cause air flow to be restricted. .

    1. Del,
      The information you read was from a dubious Facebook post that had no substantiating evidence. If this story were true, it would be all over the news and it is not. Furthermore, there are no “oils” in e-cigarette liquid or vapor. Some ejuice has propylene glycol which is not an oil and is water soluble.

      According to Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, one the foremost ecigarette research scientist, “Doctors, open your textbooks: glycerol CANNOT cause lipoid pneumonia (but other things can)”.

    2 packs per day or greater will need every tool necessary to fight the urge to smoke.

    The statistics show that if both parents smoke then their children are twice as likely to smoke in comparison to the average population smoking rate.

  1. please advise on the e-cigarette Green smoke, if there is formaldehyde.

    1. Hi Sherene. Green Smoke is a large e-vapor company that adheres to safety and purity standards. There is no formaldehyde in their ecigarettes or cartridges.

    I started smoking at 12 and smoked between 3 and 5 packs/day until at age 65. I had a minor stroke and was told to quit smoking, but not to get stressed.
    By using nicotine patches, gum and a “Crystal Liquid” vaporizer for 2 weeks I broke the habit and for the last 19 months I’ve been happily puffing away on the vaporiser. My doctor encourages me to vape in her waiting room as it may encourage others to quit lighting up.

    Friends that were repelled by tobacco odor are appreciative. My teeth are notably much whiter, and while my health is still bad I’ve had no further problems with strokes.

    Apparently advertizing these as smoking cessation products is illegal, but it’s the only thing that has ever worked for me.I feel as though I could probably quit now, but don’t see any advantage to doing so.

    I’ve heard that in the vaporizing process there is Butane formed and that we are ingesting that butane in the vapor. I’ve found nothing to answer that question on line and frankly don’t believe it’s true. But I thought I’d ask in case others have heard this rumor. Thanks

    1. Hi Ruth,

      Thanks for contributing here! Butane is an aliphatic hydrocarbon gas that is used in products such as cigarette lighters, cigarette lighter refills and a wide range of aerosol sprays because it acts as a propellant. It is not a “by-product” of the vaporiing process, in fact, it’s not a by-product of anything. There are unconfirmed reports that Butane is added to tobacco cigarettes because it causes a euphoric effect, but it is never added as an ingredient in e-cigarette eliquids.

    This is a biased study. If they really tested it they will find remnants of Fermaldahyde (cancer causing carcinogens) and the solvent propylene glycol is still in final product. Until e juice is distilled or brought to boiling point of propylene glycol it will still have the chemical. Particle size and count are the big factor in this area. E cigs produce on averase 2 times as much nano particles than a regular cig. These Nano particles find small spaces in lungs and air ways that can eventually cause heart disease, diabetes, and inflamation. So in my opinion you need to redo the study unbiased on a chemical level for inhalation instead of food grade like this one. When they give examples of food products that have these don’t be FOOLED because food grade is a lot different than aerosol grade or inhalation.

    1. Thanks for contributing here. Can you tell us who performed the adverse studies you refer to? Those who support ecigarettes, tobacco harm reduction (and even the FDA) are aware of the many false, “junk science” studies that continue to be distributed to thwart one of the most promising smoking cessation products ever invented. The main purpose of this article is to dispel some of the gross misinformation being broadcast, that only serves to scare smokers away from trying ecigs.

      For the record, our reviewers did not perform the studies listed in this post; rather we have included links to reputable scientists and agencies who conducted the studies and provided the information. We have also included links to other articles about reputable safety testing of e-cigarettes and their components.

      While it is still to early to tell whether e-cigarettes are completely safe, (honestly what is?), they are now readily acknowledged as being far safer than tobacco cigarettes to the user and bystander.

    Can you tell us about the new brand Vuse? I am under the impression that they are superior. Your expertise is a gift to all of us! My wife has replaced a 30 year cigarette habit with e-cigs. Thank you for your help!

    1. Hi Paster Bruce,
      Thanks for the kind words and congratulations to your wife on her success quitting ecigarettes!

      We are preparing a full review of RJ Reynolds’ new VUSE e-cigarette, but from my experience they are an inferior product compared to V2Cigs if you’re looking for a “cig-alike” ecigarette. At $30, VUSE are also quite expensive for a single battery kit. The vapor production is weak, and there are very limited flavors, although they are not nearly as harsh as BluCigs- another drug store/big tobacco company ecig. VUSE refill cartridges are priced high and they do not last as long as those in the original kit, so my guess is RJ is keeping in line with their plan to keep smokers smoking.

      There’s a good article on Best Ecigarette Guide if you want better insight into Big T’s plan to hinder the electronic cigarette industry.

      Have a Happy Holiday!

  2. Ive been using an e-cig for just over a week now and have not felt the need to go back to normal cigarettes at any point, i went from a pack+ a day to none instantly.
    They have got to be safer than burning than smoking for me and those around me, plus the choice of flavours means i get a better tasting sensation and my clothes smell much better

    1. Thank you Bryan and congrats on your accomplishment. Ecigs can be a tremendous help when trying to quit.

    I think this article answered every question I had. I have been using an e-cig for 6 months now. I love it. I smoked for 25 years and is the first thing I have tried (and i have tried it all) that actually works!!!
    Happy Vaping!!!

    1. Thanks Dana and congrats to you! Thanks for sharing your success with ecigs 🙂

  3. Hi Steve,

    I’ve never experienced eliquid seeping into a battery, although I have experienced ejuice leaking from the bottom of a cracked tank. Of course, I don’t ever take apart or modify a commercially produced e-cigarette so I wouldn’t know if I had a product with such a problem, unless there was compromised performance.

    I always recommend calling the manufacturer and requesting a refund or a replacement. Unless you’ve had your ecigarette for over a year, most will comply. Messing with e-cig parts to “fix” those that may be defective can be very dodgy and the world doesn’t need another exploding ecig story to pounce upon.

    As for manual buttons vs automatic, I have experienced the buttons going bad, but that was years ago and ecigs have come a long way from 2009. Now I just recommend getting one without a manual button for ease of use; getting one with a button if you enjoy pressing buttons (and I do) or if you have small curious children.

    Thanks for commenting!

    There is only one issue I have with the small slim electronic cigarettes, you know the kind that don’t have a button to push. Ive had my share of issues with them, and having to take them apart, which is not easy by the way, to fix them by re-soldering a wire. I noticed that more so then not, it seems that the e liquid somehow gets down into the battery compartment, perhaps as vapor. And that vapor condenses all around the battery to literally soak it, or at least the outside of the battery as it is wrapped in a type of silver tape. But I was thinking that perhaps its possible for some vapor from inside the battery to come out or e liquid to go in the battery. There is a sensor in the tip of the e cigarette that detects air pressure being pulled or rather sucked into the tip of the cigarette as you toke on it from the other end. This air pressure make a sound the sensor can hear which turns on the power, and that’s its internal switch so to speak. But the same hole at the end of the battery, where you screw on the atomizer,,is where this air gets pulled as you toke on it, pulling air from the tip,,down threw the tube, around the battery and a tiny bit goes into the atomizer, again through that hole I mentioned. I know this from taking many of them apart. And as I said earlier finding the battery soaked in e-liquid goo. Which I don’t think is really safe, but I’m no expert here. I have noticed the E-cigs like ego-T and so forth, the kind that have the button, have no hole, nor way for e-juice or e-vapor to get into the battery compartment, so I would assume they are safer. Just thought I should mention this given it seems few have taken apart some well used electronic cigarettes to have noticed this.

    Thank you for commenting here and expressing your concerns about the marketing of electronic cigarettes. I agree with you when you say that e-cigarettes are a ” less toxic (and hence, safer) alternative to conventional cigarette” as those viewpoints have been backed up by tests that analyze and compare the ingredients of both products.

    I also agree with your concerns that exuberant fans of e-cigarettes will express the opinion that e-cigs are a “healthier alternative to conventional cigarettes”; however, that fact has yet to be proven.

    You will rarely see a professional reviewer of e-cigarettes use that term which is why you don’t see it anywhere within our article on e-cigarette chemicals. We do; however, choose to allow our readers to express their views. Thanks for expressing yours! You have made an important distinction that will be read by our readers as well as those who comment.

    I found your article interesting and while the proof of mixing these chemicals and inhaling them will only become apparent in the future I most whole heartedly agree that they do seem to be a much better, that is to say less toxic alternative to conventional cigarette.
    I do however dislike the term “healthier alternative to conventional cigarette” since healthy indicates its good for you, where as in this case the actual fact is that it’s less bad, consequently to say “healthier” in this context is relative and a twist on it true meaning and thereby somewhat misleading.
    i.e. if a poison is only half as bad as another poison, it isn’t really healthier…. it’s less bad.

    I also have concerns for a whole new generation of children that might take it up, not because they where going to smoke anyway but because it’s the “healthy alternative to cigarettes”.
    Out history is littered with products that were created and reported to be fantastic and safe only to be shown many years later to be exactly the opposite.

    So as I said I’m delighted that finally the market has produced something that can help smokers and reduce the health issues associated.
    I’m also delighted that people like yourself are investigating the products and discussing it.

    I started “vaping” about a month ago. In the first week, I also had two packs of cigarettes. As of today, however, it’s been three weeks since I’ve smoked a cigarette. I’ve been a smoker since I was 13 years old. I am 42 now. That’s 29 years of smoking, at least 20 of those trying to quit. At this point, I have no urge to smoke cigarettes at all. Will I ever quit “vaping”? Who knows! But I know for sure that I am no longer a smoker and never will be again.

    I am a pack a day smoker, have been since September of ’10, I smoked off and on starting in 2000. Back then, I was at a pack every 3 to four days. I quit in ’01, started again in ’03, quit again in ’05…started again in ’09. My brand of choice is Marlboro Special Blend, Lights 100s. I too am looking to quit this awful habit, as I am in my 40s now and grandchildren multiplying yearly!! Lol!! I have heard both sides of the eelectronic cigarettes argument…and have to say…I am convinced that they are a far more healthier solution to a habit, than ingesting the life threatening chemicals of a tobacco cigarette, with God knows how many deadly toxins I am inhaling!!??!!! I look forward to giving these vapor doohickeys a try!!! Be Blessed everyone!!!
