E-Liquid (Cecair E-Rokok). Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

The regular cartomizer uses Propylene Glycol (PG) as the vapor producing agent. The VG carts contain Vegetable Glycerin as the vapor producing agent. Some people are sensitive or allergic to PG, so now we also offer VG.

Propylene Glycol and/or Vegetable Glycerin are the most commonly used vapor-producing agents found in e-liquid.

Propylene Glycol (PG)



Propylene Glycol (PG) is the vapor producing agent in the majority of e-cigarette juice. PG is a colorless, nearly odorless, clear liquid with a faintly sweet taste. PG is also an ingredient in numerous pharmaceuticals. If you take a gel-capsule style pill, you are ingesting propylene glycol.

Nobacco (e-liquid) made with PG tends to be more flavorful and have a more noticeable throat hit. Propylene glycol is a solvent commonly used in food coloring and flavoring. It has excellent properties for helping flavors “pop”.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)


Much like PG, Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is also used as a food additive and in many pharmaceuticals. VG is also used as a sugar substitute, due to it’s naturally sweet flavor.

E-liquid made with Vegetable Glycerin is often reported as having a slightly different (some say sweeter) flavor than liquid  made with Propylene Glycol. VG users also indicate that they VG liquid and cartomizers produce more vapor than PG. It’s also been reported that VG does not give as distinct of a throat hit as PG liquid.

Why Offer Both?

A small percentage of the population is sensitive/allergic to Propylene Glycol, with juice made from Vegetable Glycerin so that PG Sensitive vapors still have the option to vape.
