What makes VDLV DNA?

The basis of our “vapological” specifications

Manufacturer of e-liquids for electronic cigarettes, VDLV was born from the desire of its two founders, Vincent Cuisset and Charly Pairaud, to offer consumers quality French products.

Guaranteeing the safety of vapers, while adopting responsible practices, is the key to our quality approach. Our entrepreneurial vision is based on strong societal values such as circular economy, well-being at work or sustainable development, which are daily sources of motivation for our team.

Our «founding pillars» symbolize our quality commitment today. They are the ones who gave birth to our famous “vaping” specifications.

Make quality paramount

To guarantee the quality of our products, we carry out numerous analyses  :

  • Systematic analyses of nicotine bases from their manufacture, carried out by HPLC chromatography.
  • Regular microbiological analyses of e-liquid samples by a COFRAC accredited laboratory (accreditation n ° 1-0797): :
    • Microorganisms at 30 ° C – Suspected Enterobacteriaceae – Coagulase Staphylococci.
    • Yeasts and mold – E. coli – Salmonella.
  • Regular analyses of heavy metals (antimony, arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium), aldehydes (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein), diacetyl, sucralose and parabens.

Favor French manufacturing

All our products are manufactured in our production laboratory located in Cestas, France. The propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin used in our products are of PE (European Pharmacopoeia) quality. This is also the case for our aromas, which meet current European standards. We favour raw materials produced in France or in the European Union. They are supplied with safety data sheets, quality certificates and undergo a large number of quality controls. Since 2017, VDLV has also produced 100% French nicotine from locally grown tobacco plants.

Use of ingredients suitable for inhalation

VDLV carefully selects natural and synthetic food grade flavourings. However, the human respiratory system lacks the enzymes and detoxifying metabolic pathways found in the digestive system. In addition, food flavourings can present a potential toxic risk in inhalation. This is why VDLV has developed, based on scientific research, rigorous specifications for the selection of its flavours: that is the vapological requirement!

Innovate to improve the customer experience

Since 2012, VDLV has demonstrated innovation through the creation of new e-liquid recipes but also in the field of vaping. Creator of Juke-Vapes, the first contactless e-liquid test device, Europe’s leading producer of French vaping-grade nicotine, VDLV reinvents itself on a daily basis and continues to go beyond the expectations of its consumers.

We also support related projects such as the cultivation of tobacco plants in Bergerac (explanatory video), the production of biopesticides based on microalgae (ImmunRise Bio Control) or the manufacturing of second-generation bio-ethanol (ABnova).
