    Are PG animal derived ?

    i am going to get my first electronic cigarette and I am doing some research for this purpose. I am vegan and understand the flavours are all fine but have seen online that PG can be either mineral or animal derived. Does anyone have any idea on the origins of TWs different PG products?

    PG is made of animal and petroleum based oil. And VG is derived from plant oils.

    Actually PG is Propylene glycol, which is also called 1,2-propanediol or propane-1,2-diol". But there is a confusion about that whether the PG is derived from? Is it from animal source or from vegetable?

    Re: Are PG animal derived ?

    Hi I am Donna I know that PG is a essential component of e-liquid and understand the flavors are all fine but have seen online that PG can be either mineral or animal derived. Does anyone have any idea on the origins of TWs different PG products?

    Re: Are PG animal derived ?

    Thanks friends I saw the post on flavors, was good information but I am still at a loss remaining upon the propylene glycol.I have seen several sources that indicate it can either be made from minerals or animal fats. But haven't seen any e liquids that indicate which has been used and don't know if origins can even be traced.

    Re: Are PG animal derived ?

    Ok guys I will give you an information about the source of PG that is, I have found about this from an article , it is definitely PG that can be from animal source, "PG is made from animal and/or petroleum-based oils, VG is made strictly from plant oils."

    Re: Are PG animal derived ?

    I also searched about this and Yes, my searching does confirm that PG is essentially derived from petroleum. Propane, actually, is what is produced from petroleum. If I understand it right, this is then oxidized and the resulting compound is what PG is produced from..

    Re: Are PG animal derived ?

    I also want to be a part of this discussion that is I guess technically the petroleum is animal-derived to some extent. The only other animal-derived connection I can make is that PG can also be derived from Glycerol, which as I and Astrid mentioned can be sourced from animal fats. So, technically, I guess either PG or VG can be animal-derived to some extent.

    Hi friends, I am Crazylover, Sadly, I don't think any distinction is made by manufacturers as to where the base compounds come from unless there are standards I'm not aware of regarding the production of these glycol for certain purposes
