Do e-cigarettes contain anti-freeze?

The myth that e-cigarettes contain anti-freeze stems from a 2009 FDA press statement regarding electronic cigarettes. The FDA tested 18 cartridges from 2 companies. Of those 18 cartridges, 1 tested positive for a non-toxic amount of diethylene glycol (approximately 1%). While diethylene glycol is occasionally used in anti-freeze, the chemical is not a standard ingredient in e-cigarette liquid and it has not been found in any other samples tested to date. Most importantly, this is NOT an ingredient ever used by ProSmoke in our cartridges or disposable e-cigarettes.

The Cassa website states, "The base liquid for e-cigarette liquid is usually propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA. While it is also sometimes found in anti-freeze, it is actually added to make the anti-freeze less toxic and safer for small children and pets. Propylene glycol is a common ingredient found in many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use and medications we take. It is also used in the fog machines used in theaters and night clubs."

ProSmoke uses a vegetable based ingredient for the base of all their liquids used in their e-cigarette cartridges and disposable e-cigarettes. We are also the only company in the industry (and world) certified by the Green Business Bureau and Green America.

As an electronic cigarette company, the FDA prevents all companies from making any health claims or related health benefit statements. There are assumed risks that all customers accept when using our electronic cigarette products that might include health risks, toxic chemicals and more. Please do your research and read through more of our FAQ to find out more.
