In this article, we will show you how TPD affects you (Manufacturers, Retailers, and Consumers) and what you can do to be TPD compliant.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF TPD?
TPD exists for three primary reasons:
1. Protecting children from nicotine products
2. Protecting consumers by creating enforceable standards for the safety and quality of all e-juices and vaping devices
3. Protecting consumers by requiring manufacturers and retailers to provide useful information on packaging
Regulation is inevitable in an emerging industry affecting millions of consumers. Whether we agree or disagree with the rulings of TPD, we must work with what we have.
There are some very important information of the product. Do you know what it means for a pod to contain 3% or 5% nicotine?
This indicates the nicotine concentration of the pod, and a pod labelled as 3% nicotine will provide 30mg of nicotine per 1g of e-liquid. Similarly, a 5% nicotine label would mean 50mg of nicotine per 1g of e-liquid.
For a RELXPod, how much nicotine does the human body take in?
Take RELX Classic Ludou Ice flavor for example:
When vaping with an e-cigarette, there is a certain respiratory loss rate, and not all nicotine can be absorbed by human body.
It can be seen from this that the amount of nicotine intake by human body is less than 0.1828mg/puff.
