VAPE QUALITY MATTERS

Share this post:

At Vuse, we realise you may have real concerns about vaping, especially after everything you’ve seen online and heard in the media about certain vaping products

We want to provide you with the accurate information you need to answer your questions and make an informed decision about vaping, because at Vuse, the quality of your vaping experience matters.

VUSE IS A PIONEER IN VAPOUR SCIENCE

Consumers are at the heart of product development. That's why our specialist vape team of
technical, scientific and engineering experts carefully craft our devices and E-Liquids. 

Learn more about the process below.

HOW VUSE STANDS OUT FOR ITS QUALITY

Consumer satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do in the design, development and manufacturing of our products. We scrutinise every detail of our products – from what goes into the E-Liquids to the vapour that comes out.

  • We only use high-quality ingredients in our E-Liquids
  • We assess every single ingredient and every single material
  • We test each batch of E-Liquid and ensure it is traceable and tamper-proof
  • We design our products with safety features to protect against over-voltage and over-heating
  • We enforce strict manufacturing processes and quality controls

QUALITY VAPING STANDARDS

 

We advocate for product standards and have contributed to the world’s first voluntary standards on e-cigarettes, created by the French Standards Institute AFNOR and the British Standards Institute.

OUR 360°SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE

Our aim is to build the most reliable products possible. So, we conduct state of the art testing for our components and materials. We employ more than 50 scientists covering many disciplines, ranging from toxicology to device development and manufacturing, biosciences to analytic computing.

HOW RIGOROUSLY DO WE TEST OUR VAPE PRODUCTS?

All our products go through 1000 hours of testing by 50 scientists before reaching you. Only when we are fully satisfied that a product meets our high-quality standards do we allow it to go on the market.

01. KNOWING HOW YOU VAPE

Our scientists use a vaping topography machine to determine how long and how deeply vapers inhale when using an e-cigarette

02. COLLECTING THE VAPOUR

We then connect our e-cigarettes to a vaping simulator. This simulates vaping behaviour and collects the vapour for detailed analysis.

03. ANALYSING THE VAPOUR

Our scientists put the vapour through a chromatography testing process to identify its components.

04. ASSESSING THE ELEMENTS

Our professional toxicologists then asses the elements.

05. REFORMULATING AND RE-ENGINEERING

Based on our findings, we reformulate our E-Liquids and re-engineer our devices to improve vapour quality. We only use high-quality pharmaceutical and food grade ingredients to maximise purity of ingredients.

06. APPROVING PROCESS

We repeat this entire process for every E-Liquid, formulation and device we make until we are fully satisfied with the results.

OUR LABORATORIES

We use a wide range of analytical techniques, specialised technology and expertise to develop and conduct detailed tests of our products internally and with third party accredited laboratories. From the flavours and E-Liquids we formulate, to the devices we manufacture, to the combinations in which they are sold.

VAPING TOPOGRAPHY MACHINE

We use this technology to measure vaping behaviour, specifically how long, how deep and how often consumers inhale. This gives us an indication of how much vapour on average a consumer can be expected to be exposed to throughout the day. Having a clear understanding of these vaping patterns helps us to design the risk assessment study.

VAPING SIMULATOR

This clever bit of kit mimics the act of vaping. It helps us to establish the maximum number of puffs you get from each of our e-cigarette devices. This machine also contains a filter pad that allows us to collect vapour and analyse its components.

CHROMATOGRAPHY MACHINE

We use this machine for identifying the components of vapour after it has been collected on the filter pad by our vaping simulator.

VAPOUR ANALYSER

We use this technology to measure the droplet size of vapour to help us understand how capable the human body is at absorbing various droplet sizes produced by our devices.

FORMULATION ROOM

It is here that our scientists and flavourists refine our formulations. This cycle of testing and reformulating is repeated until we are satisfied with the formulation.

From toxicology to device development and manufacturing, biosciences to analytic computing, we have a 360-degree perspective from engineers and scientists, collaborating together.  Hopefully this article has given you all the information you were looking for when it comes to our product development and testing processes.
