    @GordonE I’m no Vaper, but I feel like I’ve heard that Vape juice is made from glycerine + flavours etc.. Is that right?

    If so, I’d assume there’s there’s no chance of it going rancid, as rancidity would only apply to oils/fats.

    The most common vape juices are based on Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides and Terpenes … there would not seem to be any pressing need to include Tocopherol Acetate in the mix … Tocopherol Acetate wont’ do anything in the vape juice since it does not serve an an antioxidant to prevent oils from going rancid.

    Perhaps people are including Tocopherol Acetate is based on a misconception … Terpenes are usually added as the flavor ingredients

    Has anyone spoken about the fact that you can get Tocopherol naturally or synthetic? Did you ask for a natural one or synthetic? The natural is certainly brown liquid quite viscous and synthetic should be clear.
