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:
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.
