Some of our organic flavors come in a base of organic ethyl alcohol which is present because it is used in part of the flavor extraction process. Remember, unlike artificial flavors, our flavors are actually extracted from real fruits, flowers, fine teas, nuts and honey. We use various extraction techniques to pull the flavor out of, say, ripe organic blueberries and some of these methods result in a small amount of organic alcohol in the finished flavor. The majority of our flavors are alcohol free so keep in mind this only applies to a smaller number of specific flavors.
This trace amount of residual organic alcohol doesn't bother most people and, we have found, the majority of people can't smell or taste it. However, a small percentage of the population does seem to be particularly sensitive to it and some even find it quite bothersome. If you are one of these people, you may find that leaving the cap off your e-liquid bottle for one to three days (be sure to place it out of reach of children and pets) will allow the alcohol to evaporate. This method is usually successful.
However, if you wish to avoid alcohol for personal, religious or health reasons, simply check each product page. We provide a full list of ingredients for each flavor right there and the majority of our flavors do not contain alcohol. Alternatively, if you'd like us to do the leg work for you, just call or email customer service and we can steer you in the right direction.
Please note that some organic flavors can interact with the plastic of some electronic cigarette tanks causing it to melt or crack. This is due to the real fruit acids found in organic flavors. Please use caution when using organic flavors in plastic tanks. We have a note on the product page of any flavor that is known to have issues so you can avoid it if you use plastic tanks. That said, glass is far superior in our opinion so please consider upgrading to a higher quality glass tank instead!
