While it is quite rare to be able to enter a laboratory producing e-liquids, V’APE, a French manufacturer, recently opened its doors to us! The least we can say is that their lab reflects their stellar reputation of impeccable quality.
The e-liquids made in their labs are particularly interesting—it isn’t so much what’s inside the e-liquids that is important, but rather what there isn’t. Each e-liquid comes with the following guarantees:
- No additives
- No water
- No diacetyl
- No added sugars
- No artificial sweeteners
- No sweeteners
- No flavor enhancers
- No artificial colors
The V’APE team decided to design a laboratory specifically for manufacturing e-liquids. This dedicated decision, which is quite rare in the industry, ensures an optimal manufacturing process while respecting the most stringent hygiene regulations. The traceability of the products and observation of the manufacturing process are also part of a meticulous and controlled procedure. V’APE even provided a video detailing their laboratory in the Paris region:
The conception and development of V’APE products is also subject to stringent protocols, guaranteeing the highest quality. The company’s choice of raw materials is based on strong relationships of trust with various suppliers. V’APE also emphasizes the importance of geographic proximity to the suppliers in order to reduce the carbon footprint.
Finally, V’APE has a dedicated team to that focuses on regulatory requirements. The laboratory’s ability to edit and print its own labels also allows for quick turnover and immediate adaptation to the various regulatory requirements within the European Union.
In terms of the future of vaping, this was a very reassuring visit. Manufacturers are progressing and are becoming more professional, and V’APE is the perfect example of a serious company that is currently at the top of the e-liquid market in Europe.
