Vitamin E Acetate

A lab expert doing potency testing
More than a thousand people across the U.S. have reported lung-related illnesses related to vaping and 34 people have died. According to the CDC, most cases were associated with illicit THC products, but e-cigarettes and other vaping products were also to blame. While the exact source of vape contamination is still under investigation, vitamin E acetate was found in nearly half of all samples that the FDA tested.
In vapes, vitamin E acetate is a cheap thinning agent used to dilute or thicken the THC or CBD substance, which enhances its usage in cartridges. As of the latest health outbreak, it is considered a major contaminant to your product and a threat to customer safety. Your customers want to be sure that their vape product is 100% vitamin E acetate-free.

Why It Matters?

Vitamin E acetate is safe and in demand for use in nutritional supplements or in cosmetics, for example, but when heated and inhaled, it is dangerous to lung function. In the context of vapes, vitamin E acetate puts customers at risk for major respiratory illnesses like difficulty breathing, lung damage, laryngitis, bronchitis and even death.
