The testing on the American made Instead brand e-liquid is complete.  The testing was done by Alliance Technologies and performed on both the liquid and the vapor.  Below is a summary chart of the findings:

Instead E-Liquid Test Chart

The testing shows no detection of either Diethylene Glycol or Ethylene Glycol.  Diethylene Glycol or DEG was the compound the FDA detected in 1 sample from 1 company.  Dietheylene Glycol is toxic and is a solvent as well as sometimes used in antifreeze, among other things.  Ethylene Glycol is even more toxic and is a common ingredient in antifreeze.  Propylene Glycol has a very low toxicity and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA for use in food.  The EPA stated “the Agency has concluded that there are no endpoints of concern for oral, dermal, or inhalation exposure to propylene glycol.”  Glycerin is used in medicine and food.

    I have used the green smoke. However, I am a heavy vaper with three years experience. I have found other moelds to perform much better and to be much more cost effective. I would recommend the Joye 510, Yetti, Titan, or Dura. They are all the same model. Easy to refill with well over 100 flavors to choose from. In my source I will include some links to the best companies to order from. The 510 is a three part ecig but they perform much better and are more reliable than cartomizer moelds. 510 s are available from $39.00 to $60.00 depending on where you buy them but they are all the same. I will post my website which has reviews of ecig products as well. I hope this helps. You may want to visit the e-cigarette-forum as well for loads of information.

[…] Where he failed to do some research was the sentence: “The devices contain a heating element that turns a liquid made of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine (two common food additives) and nicotine into a water vapour,”  In truth, the liquid or e-liquid as it is often called, is made up of propylene glycol, glycerin, water, flavorings, and potentially nicotine.  But the big issue I have is “water vapour”.  This is a common misconception.  The vapour from an e-cigarette has been shown to contain the same ingredients as the liquid, although not in the exact same percentages, since the vaporization process does not effect each substance in the same way.  This can be shown with some testing of e-liquid.
