SAN DIEGO, Dec. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Next Generation Labs, the makers of proprietary TFN Nicotine® – a non-tobacco derived synthetic nicotine liquid – has developed a scientific method to test the authenticity of synthetic nicotine in a final e-liquid product sold commercially.
As the popularity of synthetic nicotine increases, Next Generation Labs recognized the need for a test to validate the authenticity of e-liquids claimed to be made from synthetic nicotine. The Next Generation Labs team developed a process that enables e-liquid manufacturers to test the origin of the nicotine, providing adult consumers with the confidence that they are not being sold a tobacco-nicotine as a mislabeled synthetic product.
Next Generation Labs was alerted by its trade customers to products in the market that were being sold as ‘made from synthetic nicotine’. Next Generation Labs decided it needed to validate competitor product claims and therefore developed a formal set of replicable tests that identify the presence of tobacco-derived impurities, which are not present in synthetic nicotine. Test results have revealed traces of tobacco-derived impurities in competitor brands, suggesting their claims of using synthetic nicotine or non-tobacco, may be suspect.
Vincent Schuman, CEO of Next Generation Labs comments: “For the sake of the legitimate nicotine trade, and to protect adult consumer interest, it’s critical that we put a stop to false marketing claims about synthetic nicotine – we want to protect the industry as a whole.”
“We have a responsibility to ensure adult consumers have the opportunity to try e-liquids made with true synthetic nicotine, rather than product mislabeled as such; initial response from adult vapers tells us that consumers actually prefer the taste of e-liquids made with TFN Nicotine over those made with tobacco-derived nicotine. Companies that are making false claims about using synthetic nicotine are unscrupulous and it’s important that consumers are kept informed about what’s occurring in the industry,” concludes Schuman.
Next Generation Labs sells patented TFN Nicotine® directly to e-liquid manufacturers. Please contact Vincent Schuman directly at Vincent@nextgenerationlabs.com to purchase TFN Nicotine, or for support in testing any e-liquid to verify the use of synthetic nicotine.
*The Next Generation Labs testing methods are only applicable to e-liquids that do not contain added tobacco flavor extracts.
