The science behind e-cigarettes
When you take a puff from an e-cigarette, the battery automatically activates a clearomizer (also called vaporizer) that heat up the e-juice. The e-juice is converted into vapour or damp, when inhaled, and vaporises when exhaled. No fire, no tobacco, no tar, no odour, no ash.

Facts about nicotine
Nicotine is an addictive substance, and is the reason why smokers keep on smoking. Nicotine do not cause cancer nor death. For most smokers, nicotine is also the way out of their addiction.
Our nicotine is of the best quality, mixed with FDA and EU approved additives such as flavour, propylene glycol (PG) E 1520 and vegetable Glycerin (VG) E 422.

Electronic cigarettes was patented by Hon Lik in China in 2003, branded as Ruyan. But already in 1963 The American, Herbert A. Gilbert patented the first electronic cigarette, but back then, smoking was not considered dangerous and the product never saw the day of light.
Traditional tobacco production is in strong dissonance with current consumer trends. The focus on cancer and other health problems caused by tobacco, the smoking ban in offices and public places in most western countries and the focus on healthier alternatives have all contributed to shift in habits.
In order to reduce the potential burden of disease, the World Health Organization (WHO) successfully rallied 168 countries to sign the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in 2003. The Convention is designed to push for effective legislation and its enforcement in all countries to reduce the harmful effects of tobacco.
Since then the market has been searching for healthier alternatives. In 2003 the first e-cigarette solution was launched, and since then the industry has overseen a rapid development. In 2004 a lot of poor quality products hit the market, which resulted in the bad press e-cigarettes has been exposed to. This is fortunately changing now due to WHO calling for regulations in 2013.
In 2014, the European Union decided a regulation framework, that legalize and regulate e-cigarettes throughout the union, within 2016. You can find the EU regulations here: The regulations regarding E-Cigarettes starts at Article 20, page 25.
According to Euromonitor e-cigarettes market has grown with 20% a year to US$ 12 billion in 2016.
