Looking For Organic E-Liquids That Are Diacetyl, and Acetyl Propionyl Free? Check Out Kind Juice.
I may be a staunch supporter of electronic cigarettes, but I’m also concerned about public health and ecig safety. There are some popular e-liquids that contain the ingredients, diacetyl (DA) and acetyl propionyl (AP). Buttery, sweet, or creamy e-liquid flavors sometimes contain these two ingredients
According to one of the most respected scientists in the industry, Dr. Konstantin Farsalinos, They may that pose a “small, but avoidable risk”.
Why the Concern over Diacetyl and Other Chemicals if E-Liquid Ingredients are FDA Approved?
According to Dr. Farsalinos,
“The study is important because it confirms the lower risk potential of e-cigarettes compared to smoking but also identifies an avoidable risk…We expect to see appropriate action taken by the e-cigarette industry to remove this small but unnecessary risk, making the products even safer than they currently are”.
Kai's Virgin Vapor is one e-liquid company (along with other top vape companies , has taken action by submitting their products to independent labs for testing and reformulating if necessary.
Kai's Virgin Vapor E-Liquids Are Organic and Free of Dangerous Chemicals, Even PG
I discussed test results with Virgin Vapor’s customer service team. They assured me there is no Diacetyl, or Acetyl Propionyl in any of Kai's Virgin Vapor’s pure organic e-liquid flavors. Neither are there diacetyl analogues, Acetoin, 2,3-Pentanedione, diethylene glycol (DEG), ketone, aldehyde, hexane or any heavy metals such as mercury, lead, chromium and cadmium.
According to Angel, an aptly named Kai's Virgin Vapor spokesperson,
“All of our raw materials have been tested for these and many other compounds by a third-party Certified Lab. There are currently no regulations that require we test for these compounds; however, as a member of the AEMSA trade association, we agreed to and have tested each individual ingredient that goes into our flavorings and have Certificates of Analysis proving that our raw materials do not contain these compounds.”
- Kai's Virgin Vapor’s flavorings are derived directly from the plant, flower or fruit listed. That’s why they are certified “organic”.
- Flavorings are not compounded with added chemicals.
- Kai's Virgin Vapor's flavors are steam extracted or extracted in organic ethyl alcohol.
- The extraction process makes sure no chemical residue is left behind.
What Are the Ingredients in Kai's Virgin Vapor E-Liquids?
The ingredients are uncomplicated:
- pharmaceutical grade Kosher nicotine

- pure, distilled water

The bottom line is that vapers should choose their e-liquid suppliers carefully. It’s good to know that some e-liquid companies are a step ahead of FDA regulations.
