Get the Facts

At Vype, we are driven by the science of vapour.

Since it is the vapour that you inhale and that delivers the satisfaction, it is vital for us to know exactly what our vapour contains. We share our knowledge with other scientists, public health organisations, and most importantly with you, allowing you to make informed decisions. So, please contact Vype Care, if you would like to know more.

Our Quality Principles

Here are the principles we live by:

1

We only use high-purity ingredients

Our Vype eLiquid contains nicotine, water, glycerol and propylene glycol which are all pharmaceutical grade as defined by the European Pharmacopoeia and sourced within the EU. When it comes to our flavours, we only use EU-sourced food-grade flavourings, which are stable when vapourised. Purity for us is about what goes into our eLiquids, and about what comes out in the vapour.

2

We test each batch of eLiquids and make sure they are fully traceable

Our eLiquids are made in our laboratory in the UK. We individually test each batch of eLiquid and give it a unique number for traceability. We then load the batches into sealed, tamper-proof containers before shipping them to our e-cigarette production facility.

3

We fully analyse our ingredients, devices and resulting vapour for potential risks

We complete a toxicological risk assessment on every ingredient in our eLiquids, every material in our e-cigarette devices, and the vapour produced during use. Our team of professional toxicologists carries out the assessments, which are then reviewed by our global senior scientist panel before being approved for launch.

4

We check the mechanical and electrical safety of our Vype products

All our Vype devices have been designed with safety in mind and have been CE certified and assessed by an independent third party. Our devices are compliant with the General Product Safety Directive, the Restriction on the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances Directive, the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive and the Battery Safety Testing - IEC 62133 Standard. The safety features in all our Vype devices are there to prevent product damage, overheating, fire and risk of electrical shock.

5

We enforce strict manufacturing processes and detailed quality controls

We test every single device before it is packed and shipped out. Each device has a tracking number, indicating its batch and date of manufacture. We check the quality at every stage of production.

Get The Facts - Nicotine

Does nicotine cause cancer?

Many people continue to believe that nicotine causes cancer or the other major diseases associated with smoking. It is important to correct this misconception. The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), for example, have concluded that there is no evidence that nicotine causes cancer. This view is also supported by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Nicotine is a naturally occurring component of tobacco leaves, and you can also find it in tomatoes, potatoes and aubergines.

So does nicotine pose a health risk?

Nicotine in high doses has acute toxic effects. Accidental exposure, either through the skin or by swallowing, can cause dizziness, nausea and vomiting and can be fatal if a particularly high dose is delivered quickly. Additionally, it is well known that nicotine is addictive.

We share the view of many scientists and doctors that e-cigarettes are significantly less risky than smoking but that doesn’t mean they are safe.

Needless to say, products containing nicotine should always be kept out of the reach of children and pets.

Is there anyone who should avoid nicotine?

Nicotine-containing products should not be used by people with unstable heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and of course not by anyone under 18.

You should stop use of products containing nicotine and seek medical advice if you experience any of the following: development of an irregular heartbeat; allergic reaction such as a rash; itching or swelling of the tongue, mouth or throat; feeling faint; nausea; headache; or any other unusual effect.
