Use of Propylene Glycol
Pharmaceutical Propylene Glycol (PG) is perfect for mixing with pure nicotine and nicotine salts during the e-liquids production process.
PG is widely known to be the perfect for flavor and nicotine distribution as well as gives more noticeable throat hit comparing to VG (Vegetable Glycerine).
Monopropylene glycol (MPG), which is also in our offer is primarily used as a base for creams is primarily used as a base for creams, lotions, toothpastes, and many other personal care products.
Chemnovatic also provides many other kinds of glycol – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a specific type of glycol.
Monopropylene Glycol can be used in a hydraulic press as a working fluid. Other usage of MPG is in cooling systems as a coolant, or as a component of antifreeze and de-icing agents, eg in aviation. Due to its low toxicity, propylene glycol is increasingly replacing ethylene glycol traditionally used in these fluids. PG is widely used for fodder and for the production of fishing groundbaits, fish food, as well as lubricants, oils and coolants.
PG is also used in the food industry as a preservative, emulsifier, and component of flavors and colors (E1520). It is widely used as a preservative which protects food from deterioration, and serves as an emulsifier that gives smoothness to food products. Propylene Glycol can be used as an ingredient in food dyes and flavors, also in e-liquids manufacturing.
Glycol can be used in the production of cosmetics as an excipient that gives the cosmetic the desired emulsion consistency and as an ingredient that moisturizes the skin. It may be a component of
Medicine and Pharmacy
PG is used as a base for oral medicines and creams. Other uses for propylene glycol include in the tobacco industry as a lubricant and e-cigarette liquids.
PG/VG ratio in eliquids – comparison
Depending on the ratio of PG and VG, eliquids can have different taste properties and provide a little different sensation to users. PG and VG affect, among others, such features as: throat hit, final taste, cloud size during vaping, and allergy risk. Compare the characteristics of PG / VG in the graphic below.
