In this guide we will take a look at e-liquid concentrates and the benefits of using it over other flavourings. Plus, we also identify the best concentrate e-liquid available at The Electronic Cigarette Company.
What Is Concentrate E-liquid?
A concentrate is what provides the flavour to an e-liquid. This ingredient is made with a 100% Propylene Glycol base so when fully mixed with the other ingredients it provides the desired PG/VG ratio.
The best part about using concentrates is that they are specifically designed for vaping. Many vapers who mix their own e-liquid will use food flavourings that are repurposed for vaping, however concentrates are purpose built for e-liquid providing a better flavour.
Check out our blog to find out some of the benefits of mixing your own e-liquid.
How To Use Concentrate E-liquid?
Do not vape flavour concentrates on their own! Although not considered dangerous, it is not a good idea to use a flavour concentrate without mixing it with the right amount of vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol. These are what make up the majority of an e-liquid, with the VG responsible for vapour production and PG for flavour and throat hit. You may think that the more flavour concentrate added will create a stronger flavour but in reality, the taste is unrecognisable and not pleasant. Plus, it will also kill your coils.
The right amount of concentrate can vary slightly but in most cases 5% will offer a weak flavour, 10% a medium strength and 15% a strong flavour. However, each manufacturer will recommend their own percentage for the best use.

Best E-liquid Flavour Concentrates
The Totally Wicked Gold Standard Concentrate is as the name suggests, the best choice for vapers looking to mix their own e-liquid. All the Flavours are manufactured in the UK following all regulatory measurements, while also carrying out their own tests to ensure extra levels of safety and quality.
It is important to note that flavour concentrates fall under the general public safety regulations rather than the Tobacco Products Directive. This means that they do not have to go through as many rigorous tests during manufacturing. So, it is important to buy flavour concentrates from a reputable company for additional piece of mind. This is the reasoning behind our limited selection of flavour concentrates.
