    PG/VG pure or vegetable?

    Hi guys, Sorry if this has been asked before but it confuses me. Do I need pure pg/vg or food grade. Thanks.

    PG needs to be food grade.

    Thanks CCC, But what about VG. I read somewhere that Vegetable Glycerin doesn't nessacerally mean food grade, will food grade do.

    Whichever you get should have B.P. on the label (or U.S.P. if American)

    I am pretty sure VG is food grade in its pure form as it is made from coconut oil or plam oil, and doesn't have anything added to it. Where are you buying from? If they say it is food grade it is perfectly fine, If they sell nicotiene or e-cigs it will be fine (both pg and vg)

    The VG is used is either Melrose Brand VG (healthfood shop) or Fauldings Brand (Woolworths). As for PG I will probably just get it from an ecig vendor.

    Woolworths and Coles sell Faulding brand in the medication section. Orange bottle. Melrose Pure Vegetable Glycerine from any health food store.

    Hi arth_d, JuiceWhore has it but it is pure and needs to be diluted with distilled water. A local chemist has the food grade PG and can order in the pure form. Thanks.

    It will be thick like syrup from anywhere you get it, you can dilute it with pg, distilled water or vodka if it is too thick.
