Last 9th September, VDLV officially received the E-liquid certification from the French standards body AFNOR Certification*. For the very first time, e-liquids for electronic cigarettes provide clear quality, safety and consumer information requirements.
This is a key date for the company but also for the vaping industry. The AFNOR Certification means that the e-liquids have been tested by an independent body, according to public criterias and following the aim of a voluntary standard: the XP D90-300 Part 2.
Since its beginnings in 2012, VDLV Company has been committed to providing the best quality and safety e-liquids, all of them manufactured in its laboratory in Bordeaux city. Nowadays, VDLV goes one step further introducing his self-made vaping-grade liquid nicotine. For this reason, the whole VDLV team is very proud to achieve the AFNOR Certification. Upon the initiative of the FIVAPE*, the INC* and vapers, this vote of confidence is the result of 2 years of hard work and engagement in terms of standardization, today pursued internationally. AFNOR Certification provides several safeguards, including:
>> A careful selection of raw materials (PG, VG and nicotine USP/EP grade).
