Frequently Asked Questions
What is Propylene Glycol?
Propylene Glycol is a carrier fluid used to hold the flavor in your e-liquid. It is tasteless, odorless, and found in everyday products such as food, medical vaccines, cosmetics, medicine, hand lotions, shampoos, theater fog and cleaning supplies. PG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
What is Vegetable Glycerin?
Vegetable Glycerin is a carrier fluid used to hold the flavor in your e-liquid. It is odorless and commonly used in the food and cosmetic industry. Vegetable Glycerin is an organic compound produced from vegetable oil. VG allows e-liquid to be vaporized by the e-cig atomizer, producing the vapor that is inhaled into the lungs.
VG is classed as a carbohydrate for food purposes. VG is hypoallergenic, and is found in allergenic soaps, cosmetics and other products. VG naturally has a sweet taste, and though it is a carbohydrate, it does not have a drastic effect on blood sugar, and can be safely used by those who require insulin.
What is the difference between PG & VG?
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both carrier fluids that hold the flavor in your eliquid, and are both odorless and tasteless. PG is thinner than VG, and is more easily vaporized by the atomizer and cartomizer.
PG produces a stronger “throat hit”, and more effectively carries the flavor during vaping. VG is a more viscous liquid, and has a slightly sweet taste; it is used in foods for this purpose. In addition, it produces more vapor than PG but can be very thick and wear elements out much faster.
What blend do you use in your E-Liquid?
Aussie Blue has a large range available in 50/50, 70/30, 30/70 and Max VG (Greater than 80%). Pg Vg.

My e-liquid has slightly changed color since I ordered it. Is it still safe to use?
Yes, your e-liquid is still safe to use, even after a slight color change. E-Liquids change color due to oxygenation, extreme temperature changes, or direct sunlight. This is a harmless process that does not affect the safety, vapeability, or quality of your product.
