WHAT ARE NICOTINE SALTS?

Share this post:

Our Nic Salts flavour ranges have been specially formulated with nicotine salts – but what is this key ingredient, and how does it deliver improved flavour satisfaction?

WHAT ARE NIC SALTS?

Nicotine occurs naturally in several varieties of plant but is found at the highest level in the tobacco plant. It is found mainly in the leaves of the plant, where nicotine exists in a salt form.

These nicotine salts that are available in tobacco have been recreated in e-liquids by the addition of a special ingredient to the nicotine containing liquid formulation, which reacts with the nicotine to form a nicotine salt. Nicotine in “salt” form, also known as protonated nicotine, is more stable than the nicotine in normal e-liquids.

WHAT ARE NIC SALTS USED FOR IN VUSE E-LIQUIDS?

The addition of nicotine salts in e-liquids is aimed at delivering the satisfaction and intensity of a vaping experience closer to that of smoking a conventional cigarette.

The salt form can provide a smoother throat hit, which some vapers find to be a greater satisfaction compared to freebase nicotine which tends to harsher on the throat. Many consumers may prefer such a type of vapour, which some data indicate more closely approximates nicotine effects provided by cigarette smoke.  E-liquids with nicotine salts may also be more stable in terms of shelf life than other e-liquids.

For adult smokers looking to switch to vaping, using nic salts in your vape can create a similar sensation to that of smoking cigarettes. When switching from smoking, we suggest starting out with an 18mg nicotine strength before working your way down the strengths if you find this too much.

VUSE NIC SALTS FLAVOUR RANGE

As you have read above, nic salts in e-liquids aim to deliver the satisfaction and intensity of a vaping experience closer to that of smoking a conventional cigarette. And that’s why our Vuse Nic Salts flavour ranges have been blended to form nicotine salts.

The Vuse Nic Salts ranges has a variety of flavours and each one has been expertly crafted by our R&D team.

We hope that all made sense. Our ePod flavours are only available with nic salts as standard but we have flavour ranges for ePen, with or without nic salts so take your pick!
