For the manufacture of e-liquids, VDLV uses propylene glycol (PG), vegetal glycerin (VG) and nicotine, which comply with the “European Pharmacopoeia” (PE quality) of a purity greater than 99, 2%.
The Pharmaco … what?
Of Greek origins, pharmacopoeia literally means “the art of preparing medicines”. At the time, it was a recipes book for preparing various solutions and medicines.
Today, even if certain practices and techniques have evolved, the pharmacopoeia remains a referent in which official and regulatory standards concerning pharmaceutical substances and products are recorded. It defines the different methods of quality control tests that must be carried out on raw materials used for drugs production.
The European Pharmacopoeia is therefore an essential international reference for any person involved morally and legally in research, development, manufacturing and quality control activities for medicines.
VDLV and the European Pharmacopoeia
The “European Pharmacopoeia” quality is a pharmaceutical grade. The quality standards listed there are therefore very demanding. The AFNOR XP D90-300-2 standard imposes some standards that we apply on a daily basis in our manufacturing process:
- monitoring of the purity criteria of raw materials or preparations used in the manufacture of our products.
- Application of the analysis methods used to ensure control
