Product Stewardship of Flavours
Flavours are the most chemically complex component of e-liquids, and also a very important one for smokers to make the transition from cigarettes into vaping. As a responsible industry with a duty of care towards consumers, it is crucial to ensure that e-liquids continue to represent a safer alternative to cigarettes. In this respect it is necessary to have a level of product stewardship of flavours that derives a level of inclusion of each ingredient within e-liquids that will not deliver undue levels of chemicals to the consumer, and that ensures e-liquids always offer a safer alternative to smoking. This presentation will consider the ways in which a toxicological risk assessment of flavours can be used to derive such permissible concentrations of flavour ingredients in e-liquids, through combinations of in-vitro testing, in-silico predictions and desk-based review of available toxicological studies as part of a weight of evidence approach.
