E-Cig Company Reformulates Flavors In Light of Lab Results

Murrieta, CA – California E-Liquid manufacturer Mr. Good Vape has decided to reformulate all 12 of their flavors after receiving lab test results that detected trace amounts of Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl. The lab testing was initiated by Florida-based company, Vapor Shark, in June 2015, when they sent all e-liquid they currently manufacture and/or sell, to Enthalpy Analytical Laboratories to test for Diacetyl (2,3-Butanedione) and Acetyl Propionyl (2,3-Pentanedione). When 3 of Mr. Good Vape’s flavors tested positive for Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl, Mr. Good Vape’s Founder Gary Riddle took immediate action. “Mr. Good Vape has always had the best interests of the vape community in mind,” says Riddle, “Vapor Shark’s test results have opened our eyes and the responsible thing to do is remove those potentially harmful ingredients from our line of E-liquids.”
Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl are flavoring ingredients that produce a “buttery” flavor. They have been under heavy scrutiny in the vaping industry for the past few years after independent research has implied their association with respiratory conditions and lung disease. The ingredients are generally regarded as safe for ingestion, but more research is needed regarding use in vapor products for inhalation.
Riddle has personally taken it upon himself to reformulate Moon Sugar, Sundae Fundae, and Dabble Dooyah. “My vision for Mr. Good Vape in this industry is long term. I need to do everything within my power to produce premium E-liquid for decades to come. We all need to do what we can as an industry to create the safest possible transition from combustible tobacco cigarettes to vaping, which all starts with the ingredients in e-liquid recipes.” The reformulation of Mr. Good Vape’s flavors will be the first major revision to the company’s flavors, which have been on the market since 2012. “Moon Sugar, our number one selling flavor, has been recreated with new ingredients that actually improve the original flavor that everyone loves. We have removed all extracts that contain Diacetyl or Acetyl Propionyl. It was not easy because those chemicals add a robust buttery/bready flavor that is hard to mimic, but we did it. Multiple seasoned flavor artists have put years of experience into the new recipes. We even changed two flavors entirely, a sour yogurt as well as tobacco will now be in our lineup.”
Mr. Good Vape will re-launch the brand with newly reformulated flavors at ECC 2015, the world’s largest vaping trade show in August in California. Mr. Good Vape will be exhibiting at ECC 2015 alongside their new partners, MFG Distribution, offering sampling to attendees and taking wholesale orders from retailers at the event.
