NICVAPE LAUNCHES E-FLAVOR, THE FIRST E-LIQUID FLAVORING LINE DESIGNED TO MEET THE SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE INDUSTRY
Spartanburg, S.C.—(July 23, 2014) NicVape today announced the launch of E-Flavor, a new line of flavorings it has developed specifically for the electronic cigarette industry. The brand’s initial batch features 24 flavors designed to improve users’ taste experiences. With an estimated 4 million Americans using battery-powered cigarettes, flavors are crucial to the rapidly expanding market. So are the quality and safety measures needed to produce e-liquids for the emerging, unregulated industry. NicVape is the first manufacturer to engineer its own e-liquid flavoring product line, raising the bar for other companies with its sustainable, safe production methods.
Headquartered in Spartanburg, S.C., NicVape has been setting the standard for product quality and control since 2010 when it opened its 28,000-square-foot manufacturing facility with a 5,000-square-foot clean room. The company performs both internal quality assurance checks and third party testing through Enthalpy Analytical Inc., on each ingredient. The Durham, N.C.-based laboratory specializes in analysis of air and tobacco products. Test data led NicVape to take the first steps toward designing its own flavorings in October 2013.
“Test results showed us that flavorings designed for use in food products either didn’t meet our quality standards, or contained some components we were concerned about,” says Linc Williams, executive vice-president for NicVape. “We were especially interested in looking at alternatives that could eliminate Diacetyl, a chemical that is used to give food a buttery flavor, and Acetyl Propionyl, commonly found in dairy and custard –flavored products.”
NicVape’s team of engineers worked closely with top flavorists and manufacturing flavoring experts to develop the recipe it uses for its E-Flavor line. “Our first offering is a mix of unique tobacco flavors as well as fruit flavors that are quite vibrant and realistic,” Williams says. “They are also more concentrated. We’re able to produce them at a 10 percent dilution rate instead of the industry’s standard 20 percent dilution rate.”
Certificates of Analysis for each lot will be available for review through NicTrace, (http://www.nicvape.com/Nictrace ) the company’s online documentation system. NicVape is committed to responsible, sustainable manufacturing adds Williams. “We’re teaming with other e-juice manufacturers and partners because we are always looking to elevate product quality both through better processing methods and innovative approaches to flavoring. But we also want to pursue these goals in a way that allows companies that are part of this supply chain to expand their profit margins,” he says. NicVape is making E-Flavor available to distributors and other e-juice manufacturers and expects to release additional flavors under its brand over the next few quarters.
NicVape is a leading manufacturer, retailer and wholesale supplier of e-liquids, diluted nicotine and vaping supplies for the electronic cigarette market. Entrepreneur Rich Henning founded the company in 2010 in pursuit of the right smoking alternative. His commitment to the ongoing development and maintenance of policies and procedures that support stringent standards for quality control, production and customer service has helped build NicVape into a “USA Top-10” manufacturing and supply company for the global marketplace. In addition to partnering with companies that have similar goals, NicVape also teams with organizations like the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association to promote the principles of quality, health and safety.
