Black Note’s e-liquid contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine (apart from in nicotine-free blends) and flavorings that have been naturally-extracted from tobacco or peppermint. We don’t add artificial flavorings, colors, dyes or sweeteners to our e-liquid: all the flavors are 100 percent natural.
Here’s a quick run-down of the ingredients in our e-liquid:
Propylene Glycol (PG): This is a generally recognized as safe chemical used in a wide range of consumer products, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, pet foods and much more. PG has a fairly thin consistency and almost no taste, helping carry the flavor and producing the “throat hit” associated with vaping.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG): This, like PG, is generally recognized as safe and is present in a wide range of everyday products. VG is sweeter and thicker than PG, and boosts vapor production while producing a smoother throat hit. Black Note uses a 50/50 mix of PG and VG in our e-liquid.
Nicotine: This is the primary addictive chemical in cigarettes, and is present in e-liquid so vaping can satisfy your cravings. Our e-liquids either contain 0, 0.6, 1.2, 1.8 or 2.4 percent nicotine, corresponding to 0, 6, 12, 18 or 24 mg/ml.
Natural flavors: The flavor of Black Note’s e-liquids comes wholly from the tobacco, obtained using our unique natural extraction process. Our “cold maceration” process is a six to eight week process of “steeping” the carefully-chosen tobacco leaves to extract their flavor.
As the name suggests, this doesn’t involve adding heat, which allows more delicate tobacco essences to be extracted, producing a nuanced flavor that’s more accurate to the true taste of tobacco. We let the cold maceration process do the talking; adding no other flavors, preservatives, colorings or anything else. The same cold maceration process is used on mint leaves to produce Solo, our menthol blend.
