The Ingredients


Hi again, it’s me Dawn.

Alright, so this will be my second post on our new A Clean Cigarette blog. I hope you find it useful and maybe even a little entertaining.

Today’s topic is all the things you will find in a burning cigarette, and what is really in an electronic cigarette. Now, I can’t talk for every one else in the industry, but here at A Clean Cigarette we have always cared enough to want to know what exactly we are selling to customers. So from early on we have done things like 3rd party lab analysis on our products.  We love to share our results so click here for a free PDF copy of one of our lab analysis. If you would like to see the others just email us at

That’s true with questions too. if you have any please let us know. If we don’t know the answer we will do our best to get it for you ASAP!

So the list of ingredients in an A Clean Cigarette is fairly short:

Okay this is the list at only half way through the C’s, but we think you get our point. While we are not saying our 5 ingredient e-cigarette is a health product, we are saying that the list of ingredients found in burning tobacco is ridiculous. It would literally be a shorter list if I just put down things NOT in a burning cigarette! That fact drives me crazy. We always hear how bad for us E-cigs are, and if you are a non-smoker that’s true, but for those of you who are smoking the crazy amount of crap shoved in to a burning tobacco cigarette, think about it. How can we be anywhere near that level of bad? Here is something to think about, there is NOTHING in an E-cig NOT in a burning cigarette. On the other hand there are over 595 ingredients in a burning cigarette you can not find in an electric one.

Lets break it down, if you were at the store shopping for your family and you want to buy fruit juice. Which brand would you want, the one with two ingredients: water, fruit juice from concentrate Or the one with 10 ingredients including dyes and preservatives? Most of us strive for the smaller list of ingredients. We just understand that the less we put into our bodies the better we feel. Why wouldn’t the same hold true for anything we put into our bodies?

I hope this was helpful and as always feel free to ask questions and share this info!!

Bye until next time!
