Vandalia Mist Extracts & Vapors, LLC, like so many mom and pop vape industry businesses, began in celebration of our founder’s triumph over his 30-year smoking addiction. Beginning with BLU closed system electronic cigarettes in 2009, C. Robert Hays, attempted to quit smoking with the aid of the patch, the gum, and Chantix, to no avail. Finally, in 2013, he purchased his first open system e-cig and liquid. He hasn’t smoked a traditional combustion cigarette since.
In the old days, purchasing e-liquids on the internet was risky. Some have described it as the ‘wild west.’ There weren’t production standards. There was no way to know who was manufacturing, what the ingredients were, or whether they were using safety measures while mixing. Those days are long gone.
The American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA), developed production standards in 2012. Since then, those standards have been recognized across the country. They are part Congressman Duncan Hunter’s House Bill 2194, which was written to repeal and replace the FDA deeming regulations.
There are only 27 labs in the nation which have achieved the production standards required by this organization. We are proud to be AEMSA’s newest certified member! You can rest assured that our products are among the best on the market.
Being an AEMSA-certified facility means:
- We built a clean room with non-porous surfaces, including the floors, walls, and ceiling;
- We use the purest ingredients available, all Kosher, USP food and/or pharmaceutical grade;
- We protect our technicians and customers with the use of safety gear and strict protocol during all phases of production;
- We test our nicotine to make sure the level marked on the bottles is, in fact, the level of the liquid inside the bottles;
- We also have a third-party laboratory test our products regularly; and
- We contribute to national lobbying efforts on behalf of this industry and you.
From the onset, we determined to provide the highest quality product for the best possible price. That’s why you would be hard-pressed to find a more flavorful, quality e-liquid at a better price.
