Will Kai's Virgin Vapor Survive the FDA?

May 12, 2020 42 Comments

From reading this blog, you probably know that the FDA is requiring vape companies to submit a Premarket Tobacco Product Application (PMTA) by September 9th of this year or go out of business. The applications are crushingly expensive, extremely complicated and time consuming making it extraordinarily difficult for anyone but a very large corporation to successfully comply.

Many of you have written us asking, where does that leave Kai's Virgin Vapor? We've held off on answering that question, wanting to make sure we had a definitive answer.

Today, we can finally give you a reply:

WE ARE GOING FOR IT!!!

That's right, Kai's Virgin Vapor has officially thrown its hat into the PMTA ring!

Will we be successful? There's no way to know. But we are putting every cent we have and working 18 hour days and through the weekends between now and when the application is due on September 9th to give it our all.

We have already been working on this project for many months but we are finally far enough along that we feel confident we will be able deliver a fully completed, good faith PMTA to the FDA by the deadline. Whether the FDA accepts it or not, we can but hope and pray!

What Does the PMTA Entail?

The task we face is daunting. The PMTA requires that we hire experts to review every scientific paper ever published on the subject of vaping. It requests a massive document dump showing all of our standard operating procedures, quality control policies, marketing plans and company organization. It asks that we present detailed arguments as to why our products are "appropriate for the protection of the public health" -- and, no, it's not enough to just say "because they are not cigarettes!" We must draw on every published study pertaining to vaping that has every been done in order to present our argument to the FDA on why we should be allowed to live.

Most of all, the PMTA demands extensive and crushingly expensive laboratory testing. For example, as many of you know, we already test our products regularly with an independent lab for potential ingredients of concern. However, the FDA requires that we replicate those tests dozens of times. For a single flavor, the FDA asks that we treat each nicotine level as if it were a completely separate product. Each nicotine level must be tested  21 times, repeating the same lab test on three separate batches with the lab replicating each of those tests seven separate times--presumably to prove the first twenty tests weren't a fluke? Every one of those replications comes with a hefty price tag. Then the FDA wants us to test again at multiple points in time over a period of a year as the product ages. In all, our Operations Director worked out that for a single vape juice flavor, we would have to perform over 800 separate tests and retests--all looking for the same compounds!

The bad news is, there is no way we can afford to keep all of our wonderful flavors. Many of your favorites will, sadly, no longer be available come September. We faced a moment of personal heartbreak as we realized that many of the flavors we have offered for 10 years will soon be resigned to the dustbin of history.

Our company will hardly be alone in losing many well loved flavors. Many vapers don't quite realize just how devastating the impact of the PMTA will be. Almost certainly, at least 95% of the vape juices currently on the market will no longer be available following the application deadline.

What Flavors Will Kai's Virgin Vapor Still Have After the Deadline?

The good news is, we are putting everything we have into trying to get 10 of our best selling flavors through the PMTA process so that you can continue to enjoy them for years to come. The decision process was difficult, as it often felt like choosing between our children. We have narrowed the list down to 20 candidates. All 20 are currently out for their first round of testing with our lab. After this Phase 1 testing is complete, we will pair the list down to the final 10 flavors that we will take through to a fully completed PMTA.

We know customers are anxious to know, so here is the list of the 20 candidates. Please keep in mind that this list will be cut in half once our first round of lab testing is complete. And please understand that we share your sorrow if your favorite flavor is not on this list! We wish we could save all of our wonderful flavors but, sadly, this is far beyond our means and we simply cannot afford it!

The 20 candidates are:

  • Romancing the Strawberry
  • Death by Chocolate
  • Menthol Moon Drops
  • Plum Crazy
  • Best Damn Tobacco
  • Razzmatazz
  • Wicked Watermelon
  • Celestial Honeydew
  • Original Sin
  • Bed of Roses
  • Coconut Conniption
  • Afterglow
  • The Jet Set
  • Dark Roast Turkish Coffee (this flavor has been gone for several years but we just might be able to bring it back!)
  • Singing the Blues
  • Blue Vango
  • Lemon Rosewater
  • Fresh Thai Mango
  • Hawaiian White Guava
  • Peach Perfect

We will post the final list in a couple of weeks but expect to see half of these flavors drop out as we narrow it down to the final 10. If your favorite flavor is not on the list, we are sad to say that it will no longer be available starting on September 9th of this year.

We know this news is bitter sweet and it is with heavy hearts that we let you know the reality that we all face. However, we are hopeful that we will be successful in our PMTA bid.

Will Kai's Virgin Vapor's PMTA Be Successful?

The FDA is primarily concerned with two things. First, the FDA is looking to eliminate companies that are selling or marketing their products to minors. This is an area where Kai's Virgin Vapor shines. For years we have made decisions that limited the appeal of our products to people who are underage, opting for simple product design with adult appealing names. How many kids do you know who like flavors named after a Greek myth (Hunger of Persephone) or enjoy vaping something named in Latin (Temus Fugit)? While many companies have candy colored product lines that are designed to mimic the taste of kid's cereal, our flavors appeal to more sophisticated palates. Our website focuses on intelligent, well thought out content and in depth news reporting.

These efforts to eliminate appeal to underage individuals have been successful. The average age of Kai's Virgin Vapor customers is 45 and 90% of our customers are 30 years old or older! We definitely aren't going after the younger crowd. Our company appeals to and caters to mature adult vapers and that fact should be a huge help in the PMTA process.

Second, the FDA wants to see lab testing and other information showing that our products are "appropriate for the protection of the public health." Again, Kai's Virgin Vapor has placed a huge emphasis on lab testing over the years, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on lab analysis, hiring a Ph.D. chemist to help us establish testing protocols, and on purchasing our own in-house GCMS machine. While the FDA testing list expands on the compounds we have already tested for, we are already way ahead of the game as we took steps years ago to reduce or eliminate certain compounds and ingredients in our vape juices that we felt could be of concern. In addition, we won't have to argue with the FDA about why we should be allowed to include artificial colors or artificial sweeteners in our formulas because we don't use them. We already have USP grade certifications for our ingredients and our USDA organic certification will likely help as well.

Third, the FDA requires that we have a robust quality control system in place with proper documentation and systems to ensure that we produce a consistent product every time and that we have standard operating procedures in place to investigate any deviations from expected performance results.

Again, this is an area where Kai's Virgin Vapor is already way ahead of the game. While lots of other companies have spent their money on catchy advertising or slick websites, we've invested in our product itself, purchasing and upgrading sophisticated lab equipment and software that eliminates the possibility of human error when we make our product. Our batches are exact, down to the gram, and we have proved that again and again by sending samples to an independent lab on a regular basis for testing. Likewise, for years we have had complete ingredient traceability, required by our USDA organic certification, which tracks every lot of every e-juice ingredient and ties it to each particular batch so we know exactly where every component in every bottle originated from.

In order to make sure we have crossed every "t" and dotted every "i," we have also applied for ISO 9001 certification, a process whereby an external agency will audit our systems to ensure we have fully established procedures in every area, properly follow those procedures, and document every step along the way.

There's no way to know if our PMTA will be successful. The guidance the FDA has offered is very far from clear and it is undoubtedly a major gamble. However, we strongly feel that, if any smaller companies will be allowed to survive, we should be one of them! We've worked hard to do the right and responsible thing since day one, working to make the cleanest, highest quality product possible while preventing sales to minors, and isn't that, after all, what the FDA is really looking to see?

Please Help Us!

Despite the fact that we have always run our business in a way that is in line with upcoming regulations, the PMTA process is daunting. We ask for our customer's prayers as it is going to take everything we have to succeed! We encourage you to stock up on the flavors that you love that we won't be able to continue to carry, both so you can enjoy them once they are forced into retirement, and to help us raise money to cover the hundreds of thousands of dollars in lab testing we are struggling to afford.

We also ask for your patience and understanding as we will be making many changes, both seen and behind the scenes, as we take the necessary steps to be fully compliant with the upcoming regulatory environment. These will include changes to our labels, alterations to our website, changing of product photos and many other things.  Please bear with us! The PMTA may require us to operate like a big company but we will never lose our small business ethics. We will always treat our customers like family and be only a phone call away if you need help!

We thank you for 10 amazing years and we sincerely hope we will continue to be around to keep the love going! We are facing a new world but we are determined to do so with our PMTA in hand and a smile on our faces!

Lots of love to our Vape Family! We are fighting hard to stay alive, fighting for our own jobs, fighting for the future of our business, and fighting for you so that you can continue to enjoy the flavors that you love! We couldn't do it without you! Thank you!

Thank you for the warning. I am sorry this is happening to you and the business. I agree that if your company cannot get approved- no one else should be allowed to! Your the virgin vapor! As pure as it gets. I did mind numbing research knowing that I did not want to switch from cigarettes to another problem. Although I know that quoting altogether is ideal – it was not one I had been able to achieve. However your products have kept me off combustion longer then I remember now. I smoked a cigarette once after to see and it disgusts me now. I vape Plum Crazy unwaveringly and would never want to change to anything else ! I tried every flavor you offered back then and it was the one (cherry was the last to be eliminated though). The plum agrees with me in every way and my health has improved so much my dr says keep doing what I am. Maybe one day I would not vape at all, but these hard times are not the moment to stop because of regulators.
I commend your spirit and dedication to get approval and as a business owner (this the stress lol) I understand the level of difficulty. I wish you luck and my support. Feel free to call me if any testimony can help. In my hard researched opinion (and I have multiple advanced degrees that are research based) your products are the gold standard of virgin cleanliness. Organic, certified, clean, naturally tasteful, thoughtful and mature, and helpful to get off of combustion based cigarettes. I also Sincerly hope that Plum Crazy makes the cut, with its award winning taste. Without it I would be plum crazy and less healthy.

Sad day for Kai…. You guys are my go to and only brand that I have ever purchased for vaping over 5 years ago! I’m a fruit man and love to see my favorite fruits in that list. Hopefully they stick around. And anyone else concerned about flavors getting the boot…. Just stock up now!! Exp. date is long enough to last for a bit 😉
With you and the company all the best in this ridiculous endeavor!!

What if Kai’s suddenly sells “essential oils”? I mean, those aren’t regulated… and if just so happens that I’m able to plop it into my tank and vape it, even better! There are ways around the communist FDA. What is big tobacco doing to protect the public health, as well as alcohol and gmo foods???

Please please please keep Bed of Roses! It’s hands down the best vape juice I’ve ever tried. You guys are amazing, thank you for everything you’re doing to stay in the business. If you are successful with the original 10 juices, will you be able to add more juices in after going through the process again? Wishing you all the best!

I’m so sickened that you guys have to go through this!!! You provide a completely harmless product that contain the simplest ingredients AND everything is USDA-certified organic (which is the main reason I was so excited to find Kai’s!). It’s really so sad how crooked our society can be, but I digress.

I’m so so so sad that Night Blooming Jasmine and Spun Sugar Mama aren’t on the list…but I am super delighted to see The Jet Set, Wicked Watermelon, and Celestial Honeydew! I’ve never tried Peach Perfect or Best Damn Tobacco, but I feel like that would make for one amazing combo. :)

Anywho, keep fighting the good fight, my friends! Like other people have said in the comments, we are behind you 100%! Let us know what we can do!

So sorry that this is happening. Midnight Magician has been the only vape flavor I have truly enjoyed for ~6 years now and I am devastated to see it go away. Any chance you would the describe the flavor notes so I can figure out which one of your remaining vapes is the closest to it? It’s so good but I can never tell exactly what the flavors are.

How about you put together a sampler containing all of the flavors you are going to keep so we can try them all and decide what we’re going to switch to.
Personally I love the French Vanilla Kiss but it didn’t make the list so I need to switch. I will only vape Kai’s Virgin Vapors because of the quality, but I need to switch flavors so any help you can offer would be great!

I don’t understand? I thought they only banned flavors in vape pods. Not e-juice it self that goes in tank systems. The administration said kids don’t really use tank systems and they didn’t want to shut down all the mom and pop vape company’s and have thousands lose there job’s. Did i miss something here???

I certainly appreciate your efforts to continue delivering exceptional products. I quit smoking several years ago. I spent a lot of time researching companies with whom I could trust to purchase e-liquid from. I finally landed on Kai’s virgin vapors and never looked back. After trying several flavors, I settled on origin sin and have used it exclusively for almost a year.

Thank you for fighting the good fight!

Thank You so much. I appreciate you trying. I’m hoping and praying the FDA accepts your application.
I was a heroin addict for 18 years. I quit, I’ve been clean for 10 years. The crazy thing is, I just couldn’t quit smoking cigarettes until I found vaping! I put the cigarettes down and never looked back. I’m very scared about not being able to get vape juice

I am deeply sickened by your email regarding your ejuice possibly becoming illegal. Knowing full well at 51 years old the loss of life that has resulted from a couple centuries of alcohol,tobacco, and food dye, all of which are perfectly legal. You think big tobacco/powers that be have a little hand-in-pocket back-scratchy thing going on here? What else would explain the blind eyes turned toward these proven killers? And what about prescription drugs? Most times the side effects are worse than the illness they supposedly treat, and death comes up frequently as one of those side effects! Buddy that ain’t a side effect where I come from, that’s a poisoning! I guess we’re all at the mercy of crooked politicians and the industries that properly pad their pockets. Well I wish you guys the best of luck and I hope that you nor any of your flavors go anywhere! We will do our part to help you guys, our order will be in shortly, and we’ll buy as much as we can afford between now and D-day! I’d love to be able to share my thoughts with the aforementioned powers and politicians, but I don’t associate with dishonest people! We’re in this with you Kai! Hold your heads high and dig your heels in, your customers are behind you 100%!

Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of support! We’ve been working long days around here and reading your kind and supportive comments brought tears to our eyes and meant the world to us! Thank you to everyone so much!

To answer questions, no, this will not affect our CBD line except that if we are not successful with our PMTA, we will be forced to go out of business and would not be able to continue to manufacture these products either.

Yes, nicotine salts will no longer be available as it seems unlikely the FDA will approve any nic salt products so few, if any, manufacturers are even going to try.

Yes, the shelf life of e-juice is 2 years. However, as an experiment, we’ve kept products for six years and longer and then tried vaping them and had no issues. So the product does not “go bad” per se, what happens is that the nicotine will slowly degrade, gradually reducing the nicotine level in the e-juice. To slow this process, we recommend keeping e-juice in the freezer or at least the refrigerator for long term storage. If you want to be really crafty, you could get e-juice with a nicotine level higher than you normally vape knowing it will be lower by the time you get to it in a couple years. : )

Thank you again to everyone for your support! Lots of love!

I’m 64. I started cigarettes @ 11, 2 Pks a day since 12. I “stopped” 3 times, with the longest success being 3 yrs, while craving a cigarette 24/7.

8 yrs ago, my oldest son told me I was gong to be a grandpa. They said, however, that they would not bring baby into our house bcause of my smoking, nor could I smoke in babies presence. I was really scared, after 50 yrs of smoking, I knew I was truly addicted to nicotine.
7.5 years ago, my younger son & his wife (her uncle vaped) gave me an eGo battery, 2 cartomizers and a bottle of your juice, for Xmas.

In short time my coughing, wheezing, & shortness of breath stopped, as did the cravings. My Dr. said since I’m only getting the nicotine, and not all the chemicals, he’s not very worried. And my lungs are in good shape, now. I’ve only used your juice since that Xmas.

I vape Death by Chocolate. I’m glad to see it on the list. I use your a subscription service and will being increasing my quantity.

Do I keep the excess in the fridge or what?
I am I correct that it has a shelf life of 2 years

What a terrible shame you have to do all of this. You have the safest and best best products out there. Also, the best customer support I have ever seen. Here is my vote for flavors: Romancing the Strawberry, Menthol Moon Drops, Best Damn Tobacco, Razzmatazz, Original Sin, Singing the Blues, Peach Perfect, Death by Chocolate, Plum Crazy, and Coconut Conniption. Please give priority to my Menthol Moon Drops.

Patches, gum, hypnosis, medications that I had adverse reactions to and thus Dr. ordered me off them! Nothing worked! Then I tried vaping. The companies I tried were MANY. I did NOT like MOST of what I tried! Then I found Kai’s! I have NOT ordered from anyone else since! I found that I can NOT vape PG vapes! Yours are the BEST VG vape out there! I have added you to my prayer circle as well! Heart felt thank-you for fighting for all of us! I will continue to stock up as well to help you WIN this battle! You have an outstanding product! I would HATE to see it go! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! YOU ARE APPRECIATED BY MANY!!!!

I will be praying for you and making some big orders!

I was a two pack a day cigarette smoker. My husband also smoked but had started vaping about ten years ago. He kept trying to get me to vape but I every time I tried it I would get sores on my lips and in my mouth. One day we were having breakfast out and the restaurant happened to be next to a tobacco shop. My husband suggested we stop in and see if they had any E juice.
When we went in the young man began telling us about this great new product that they had recently got in called Virgin Vapor (this was before it was called Kai’s) I immediately told him I could not vape because of the sores that I would get. He explained that I was probably getting the sores because of a reaction to a substance called propylene glycol that is in most of the products.
He went on to explain that Virgin Vapor Death By Chocolate contained no propylene but instead had vegetable glycerin and that all the ingredients were organic. He said it was the best E juice he had ever used.
Well he was right! I started using death by chocolate that day and have been vaping it ever since. I have totally quit smoking cigarettes, and I feel so much better! I don’t get the bad sinus problems I used to suffer with anymore and I can smell so much better and I can feel the difference when I breathe. When I was smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day I often felt short of breath.
I just want to send you guys a heart felt thank you for saving me from the scourge of cigarettes. I will support you and buy as much Death By Chocolate as I can in the coming months.
Please let this one make it in to the top ten.
My husband asked me what I will do if you guys are not successful in your attempt to appease the FDA. There are two things I know for sure, 1 I will never smoke cigarettes again, just the smell of them makes me nauseous. 2 I will have to stop vaping as I don,t know of any other company that does not use propelyne glycol in its products.
So you see you simply cannot fail! I need you and my Death By Chocolate. Thank you!

I pray for a hedge of protection around your employees and your business. I only vape Coconut Conniption and have been a non-smoker for six years. Of course, I hope that my flavor makes it through to the final round, as it would be heartbreaking to find an alternate flavor, but most importantly, I pray that your company thrives during this difficult time. Thank you for your outstanding service over the past 6 years and for your commitment to our healthy vaping choices.

This is heartwrenching. And if only they put this much effort into Philip Morris marketing, ahem.

I can’t imagine they wouldn’t accept your application considering you sell the cleanest, safest products on the market I’ve ever seen.

I hope that’s really the point in their regs.

Sending so much <3 and customer loyalty.

I wish the abusive, orange stepdad would stay out of my personal business, but when big tobacco gives you big piles of money: you do what they want. I commend your company for always making a quality product that stands above the majority of the industry. Thanks to you I have been cigarette free for years. Even if the only flavor you end up with is Tobacco, I will still be supporting you. I also encourage everyone to look into and boycott British American Tobacco. They owed almost 1 billion dollars in back tax, and are the reason for the vaping industry collapse. They donated $1 million to the Trump campaign, and have definitely seen a return on their investment. Sickening. Keep up the good fight Kai’s! We love ya!!

Unfortunately, nic salts will no longer be available after September 9th. Based on our research, it is unlikely the FDA will approve any PMTA applications for nic salts so I would expect they will not be around anywhere following the deadline.

Is it possible to sell the flavor separate from the unflavored nicotine product? Maybe then you can test 3 or 4 unflavored nicotine products but sell the flavorings (which could be sold as food products maybe?) in their own bottles and customers can add the flavors at home.

A massive thank you Kai’s for your commitment to us, your customers! It takes gargantuan fortitude to see a project like this through, so kudos and commendations are in order as well. I will absolutely add Kai’s into my prayer list. Moving forward with hope and faith; that the high level of integrity of your product in all aspects, backed by your diligence and perseverance will not only be evident, it will be more than sufficient to warrant approval from the FDA. Godspeed Kai’s! With gratitude, appreciation, and high regards, Jon.

Thank you for continuing to fight! I have been vaping for over 10 years and I can say that vaping probably saved my life and lungs. I smoked cigarettes for over 30 years and I know, in no uncertain terms, that vaping has dramatically improved my health. If I had continued to smoke cigarettes I probably would have crippling COPD by now. I understand that regulation of these products, of any products, that are ingested by humans should be tested and regulated.
My surprise however, is the highly prejudicial and biased stance the FDA and other regulators have taken on vaping. After all, if you destroy the vaping industry then what will the people who use these products be forced to do. GO BACK TO SMOKING CIGARETTES!! What about all the harmful ingredients that are in those things.
If the FDA were really concerned about public health then why do they continually, over many decades, turn a blind eye to probably THE MOST HARMFUL PRODUCT EVER DEVISED MY HUMANS! CIGARETTES. COULD THEY BE MORE HYPOCRITICAL!
But I digress, please please continue to fight. I will do my part by buying as much of your wonderful products as I can afford. I am sure all your customers share in my hope that you will be successful in this endeavor.

FDA Reverses Course on Coronavirus/Vaping Link
