VistaVapors has been very proactive in dealing with Diacetyl, Pentanedione, Acetyl Propionyl, and Acetoin. We feel this is a very important issue that needs to be addressed in the vaping industry. In 2013, we began contacting our suppliers requesting that they discontinue using any ingredients that we, or they, feel might have an adverse affect on the health of consumers. As a result, there are several ingredients that we have begun to limit in production, and several flavors that were questionable, and were then immediately removed from our site in 2013. However, we feel that relying on our manufacturers processes does not provide enough assurance.
This is a new issue for the flavor manufacturing industry, and it has become evident that independent testing is a viable safety precaution. Recently, we contacted an independent lab to begin extensive testing on our flavoring. As test results come back we will evaluate the data and react accordingly. Our plan is to have every flavor tested. If anything comes back as positive for such chemicals, we will either remove or reconfigure the flavor accordingly.
Our goal is to be able to state that our ingredients supply chain is clean of all potentially problematic ingredients and to provide independent lab tests to verify that is the case.
If you are especially concerned about these ingredients from any company, there seem to be certain types of flavors which typically are “repeat offenders”. They fall into the flavor compounds to make buttery/creamy flavors such as Popcorn. It is especially important to us at VistaVapors that our E-Juice does not contain harmful ingredients, as not only do we provide E-Juice to all of our customers, but also ourselves, our families, and friends who all vape our juices.
