What is Vitamin E Acetate and why is testing important?
Vitamin E Acetate is a synthetic variant of Vitamin E and is often used in topical products such as skin creams or medications. Vitamin E Acetate is a fat-soluble liquid when kept at room temperature and therefore, has been used as a thickening agent for some THC vape cartridge manufacturers. Vitamin E Acetate in THC vape cartridges have been linked to a vaping-related lung disease, also referred to as EVALI.
While Vitamin E Acetate typically does not cause harm when ingested, research suggests that when it is inhaled, it may interfere with normal lung functioning. Having your product tested to ensure your product is free from Vitamin E Acetate will bring you and consumers peace of mind.
