The Proper Way to Package E-Liquid

E-cigarettes, vaping, and e-liquids were introduced to the public less than 10 years ago. Considered safer than traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes utilize e-liquids to deliver a blast of nicotine mixed with flavor. As these electronic options have grown in popularity, so have the e-liquid options. The American Lung Association estimates that there are more than 7,000 e-liquid flavors currently available to consumers. While there are a wide variety of options available, it’s important that e-liquid bottles meet the FDA packaging and labeling standards.

Addictive Warnings

No matter how large or small the quantity of nicotine is in an e-liquid, it’s required by law to be noted on the bottle. In fact, a verbatim warning reading “WARNING: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical,” must be included. The law further states that the warning must appear in a font that’s at least 12 points in size and must be legible and easy to see.

Bottle Sizes

While the labeling of e-liquid is highly regulated, the actual bottle isn’t. However, it’s always better to choose a bottle that is neither too big nor too small for the amount of e-liquid you’re looking to sell. Some vendors prefer to fill 1-dram bottles, while others manufacture e-liquid in larger sizes, like 15 ml or .5 oz. No matter what you choose, it’s important to choose a lid that matches the bottle size. This prevents spills and contamination from occurring.

Labeling Material

To ensure that your e-liquid remains properly labeled and protected from FDA scrutiny, choose a label material that can withstand moisture. Weatherproof material is the perfect way to prevent any issues that may occur. Don’t be tempted to choose a lesser quality material, like paper, to print your labels on. It could tear during transport or if it comes in contact with moisture.

By adhering the FDA guidelines and choosing durable e-liquid packaging, it’s much easier to market and sell the product. You’ll find that sales increase and you worry less about the FDA cracking down.
