A recent study on​ nicotine e-liquid juice has been conducted by Vapoureyes, covering aspects on the production, consumption and general risks associated with the product.

Nicotine E-Liquid has a range of different flavours and levels of nicotine, it’s developed and created using a mixture of pure food-grade vegetable glycerine (VG) and/or USP-grade propylene glycol (PG) and of course, nicotine to ensure maximum taste and satisfaction.

Warnings about nicotine e-liquids

Nicotine e-liquids should be seen an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Numerous independent agencies and companies all promote the concept of not marketing or selling to anyone who is not of legal tobacco smoking age in their state or territory and they reserve the right to enforce this if we need to. If you’re not old enough to smoke – or even if you are but never took up the habit – you don’t need to vape.

Doctors and numerous medical organisations would advise you to think twice about vaping if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have (or are at risk of having) heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other blood-related illness. You may also want to think twice if you are taking medication for depression or anxiety, have a history of chronic upper respiratory tract irritation or illness, or are otherwise sensitive to nicotine. If you’ve got any of that going on and need to quit smoking, we recommend you speak to your GP first.

How much nicotine do I need in my nicotine vape juice?

The amount of nicotine you need in your nicotine vape juice will come down to how many cigarettes you smoke per day. Many vapers will slowly taper their nicotine levels over time, but you want to start at a level that will kick your cravings and be enough to stop smoking altogether.

If you’re just starting out with vaping, you can use this as a guide:

Ultimately, your preferred nicotine level will be what you feel comfortable with. You may need to start with more milligrams than you normally get in your cigarettes, but with some experimentation you will find your level.

FDA Recommends using Physical Sunscreen over Chemical

mm

Published

on

Dermatologists and Food and drug Administration continue to advise Americans to apply sunscreen. Generally only one in 5 Americans develops cancer. But applying sunscreen reduces the risk. And sunscreen also reduces premature aging, wrinkles and sun spots.

Even though all of us pay little attention to the harm sun does us, we apply sunscreen. And sunscreen, or a sunbed cream (zonnebankcreme) is one of the staple cosmetics everyone uses. So, the FDA proposed a regulation that manufacturers have to provide more data about the safety of certain sunscreen ingredients. And they also requested the details of how much absorbing capacity do these chemicals have, and how they have any effects on the body.

There are two types of sunscreen. One is the physical sunscreen. It sits on the skin and reflects the UV rays. And it contains chemicals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. People with sensitive skin must use physical sunscreen. And these sunscreens leave a white residue on skin like applied by cricket players on field. Physical sunscreens are more natural than the next type- Chemical sunscreen.

The chemical sunscreens absorb the UV rays from sun rather than reflecting it. And they have ingredients like Oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, octinoxate. These sunscreens do not leave a white residue and are more cosmetically elegant.

The FDA claims that Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are the safest ingredients for skin. Which means that physical sunscreen is safer. But that does not mean chemical sunscreens are hazardous. It only means that the FDA does not have more information on their level of safety.

If the ingredients on your sunscreen pack concerns you, then check for titanium dioxide and zinc. But if there are other ingredients then you can use a physical sunscreen. You can also use physical barriers like an umbrella, a long sleeve shirt, and a hat. You can use shades for your eyes too. The sun is most powerful in the time frame of 10 am to 2 pm.

It is always better to consult a dermatologist for sunscreen for your skin.
