Is E-Liquid that Leaks on My Lips Harmful?

Did you know that there are more than 250 dangerous chemicals, among the thousands of other chemicals, within a single combustible tobacco cigarette? Compare that to the limited number of ingredients in an electronic cigarette, and the difference becomes immediately obvious.

Understanding the Ingredients in E-Liquid

E-liquid ingredients

The ingredients used to create e-liquid for electronic cigarettes include propylene glycol, glycerin, flavoring and, in some cases, nicotine. Propylene glycol is best known for being present in mouthwash, and glycerin is already found in a variety of safety-tested beauty products. Many e-cigarette users understand the safety of those ingredients, but still worry about the nicotine content in e-liquid.

Should You Worry About Nicotine Overdose with E-Cigs?

The answer is a resounding “no.” As long as you are using the electronic cigarette appropriately, you have no reason to worry about nicotine poisoning from e-cigarette liquid. It is important to remember that nicotine is a stimulant that can be dangerous in large doses. E-cigarettes users will not encounter such massive amounts unless they intentionally ingest large quantities.

Some consumers worry about small droplets of e-liquid that might end up on their lips while puffing from an e-cig. The small amounts of nicotine in those tiny droplets are not a cause for concern. A little bit of e-liquid on your lips may leave an unpleasant taste, but do not be alarmed. Just simply wipe it off and move on with your day.
