Why You Should Manufacture E-Liquids in the UK

We are one of the leading UK E-Liquid, personal care products and CBD manufacturers supporting brands worldwide as their businesses develop. At Xyfil, we provide end-to-end white label manufacturing services, helping you develop your brand from conception to reality. There are many reasons why manufacturing locally can benefit you when pushing your products into the market. Here are just a few of the reasons why your should manufacture in the UK, and how Xyfil can help with them.


Why manufacture in the UK?

The UK was one of the first countries in the world to introduce legislated E-Liquid product requirements and is still at the forefront in safety and quality. The UK’s regulations for safety and quality are often seen as examples of best practice and are implemented by other countries. By choosing to manufacture your products in the UK and with Xyfil, you are guaranteeing the exceptional quality and the safety of your products.

The UK and European TPD regulations are being carried ahead for other countries as the guidelines for manufacturing E-Liquids. That just shows how well-respected UK regulations are in the market.”

– Anisha, Operations Director, Xyfil

With ISO 9001 accreditation across our laboratory facilities, manufacturing processes and equipment, we at Xyfil continue to demonstrate the ability to provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. Since the initialising of the E-Liquid regulations and TPD compliance, we at Xyfil have been leading the way in safe product development. We were one of the first UK companies that registered successfully compliant products. Local manufacturing means that we can offer reassurance and security with your products. Manufacture local means you can visit the premises and communicate easily with our teams throughout the entire process.


British-made means quality

As previously mentioned, the UK’s regulations for the manufacture and selling of nicotine-based products naturally translates to a higher calibre of quality when it comes to British-made E-Liquids, personal care and CBD products. With Xyfil you can trust the quality of the products manufactured by us. With ISO 7 clean rooms that can produce 2.5 million E-Liquids, CBD products and Personal care products every month, not only can we boast quality but efficiency.

We also include batch code testing for complete traceability throughout the entire process. Not only are we able to trace the individual ingredients used, but also the specific packaging, the stages of manufacture and even each person that works with the product throughout the process. Ensuring quality is how we create award-winning products.


Local manufacturing to Global Distribution

Whether you are looking to sell solely in the UK, arguably one of the biggest vaping markets in the world, or across the seas, Xyfil can help you there. We are well connected in the industry with retailers and distributors across the UK, continental Europe, UAE, Middle East and USA. With an option of on-site warehouse storage for businesses with limited space, we can also offer logistical support to get your products where they need to be. With 10 years of experience under our belt, we can help manage your supply chain through drop-shipping to local retailers and customers across the UK and beyond.

It’s never been easier to reach a global market than it is with Xyfil. Not only this, but we are entirely flexible to changes in the market by offering bespoke services should things change. From changes in regulations that require packaging to be re-printed, we can offer our services to amend these labels, re-label and package your products and then have them distributed back into the market.


Why you should work with Xyfil for E-Liquid Manufacture

At Xyfil we provide support to brands as seen by the dedication to our white label services. Many manufacturers in the market began with their own brand of E-Liquids first before turning to help others get a step in the E-Liquid market; but we have been supporting independent brands since the very get-go, with systems in place that help support and build others.

An important consideration for anyone selecting a manufacturing partner should always be the risk management strategy of their manufacturing partners. The pandemic has taught the world many things about being able to assess and deal with issues caused by broken trade lines. Xyfil has a well thought out risk management strategy in place for every single component in our production and we operate a preferential UK supply chain policy in which we also evaluate the risk strategies of our own suppliers before engaging with them – we have back-ups for our back-ups!

During the pandemic, Brexit and supply shortages over the last two years, our strategies have been tested and proved through these rough seas without a single day of production lost.

How To Launch Your E-Liquid Brand in 2021.

Getting To Grips With The Market

In the 5 years between 2014 and 2019, e-cigarette sales rose by $12.3billion, and estimates suggest the current number of adults who vape could be around 55 million. With the industry growing quicker than ever before, there has never been a better time to launch your e-cigarette brand on the vape market. As a leading CBD and E-liquid manufacturer with clients worldwide, we know better than most the challenges faced by new producers breaking into the market. Let us talk you through the launch process.

Gaining Legal Recognition

So, you’ve worked with a top team of producers, manufacturers and designers – maybe us! - to turn your product ideas into a tangible, ready-to-market product. Nice work. What next?  

As you might expect, there’s a good number of regulations you’ll need to be compliant with, along with gaining respective approvals, before you can sell on the market legally. In the UK, these are governed by the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). 

The TRPR (Tobacco and Related Products Regulations Act) updated by the EU Exit Amendment 2020 is your main point of essential compliance, and producers must submit information about their products to the MHRA to ensure full compliance via the MHRA Submissions Portal and European Common Entry Gate (EU-CEG). Submission is recommended six months before you intend to put your product on the market for sale. Turnaround time from submission to receiving approval can take up to 60 days, and fees do apply. 

As producer, it is your responsibility to ensure your products comply with TRPR requirements. Once the MHRA are satisfied your product complies, it is recorded as “declared” and you are free to supply your product for public sale in the UK. Our compliance team can help with this process to make sure that everything is up to standards.

The Perfect Marketing Window

Receiving legal status is half the battle. Once you’re confident you can place your product on store shelves with ease, it could be all too easy to take your foot off the gas. But don’t stop here! This is the perfect opportunity to amp up your marketing campaign to increase your audience and generate your first sales. 

Make the most of your social media channels: post partnership content or discount codes for purchases through your new suppliers to direct traffic. Paid promotions across your platforms will also be a great opportunity to capture new potential customers who may not already be aware of your brand. Recent newcomers, JUUL, had excellent success with these techniques back in 2017 – their social media engagement rose from a monthly average of 765 in 2015 to 30,565 in 2017, and they managed to capture more than half of the entire e-cigarette market share by the end of 2017!

Time To Get Started!

Hopefully, our handy run down of launching an E-liquid brand on the market has given you a better understanding of how the process works. While it can seem overwhelming, being prepared and consulting the experts are some sure-fire ways to make your first product launch as smooth and seamless as possible.

5 Things You Need To Know About CBD

What is CBD?

CBD’s efficacy and versatility has earned it a prime spot in countless products across various industries, from cosmetics to the vape industry, food and drink, and health supplements. You’ll find it in almost everything from body butters to beers, but in spite of this much deserved hype, a lot of people are still in the dark about CBD’s origins and uses. Let’s run through some CBD essentials, and some of our favourite CBD facts.

CBD Is The Main Component of Cannabis

First things first, what is CBD, and where does it come from? Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of 120 cannabinoids that makes up the cannabis plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating and non-euphoric psychoactive cannabinoid – meaning it can be great natural supplement to help you relax without getting you “high”.

Differences Between CBD Oils

Not all CBD oils are the same. Typically, they fall into three categories:

Full Spectrum – containing the full spectrum of CBD, including minor cannabinoids, cannabis-derived terpenes, and trace amounts of THC.

Broad Spectrum – containing a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, but without trace THC.

Isolate – a pure form of CBD with all other compounds removed. While some branding can be unclear about which category is contained in some products, it’s important to be sure which type you are buying. THC is a euphoric psychoactive cannabinoid, and as such does produce highs. THC is broadly illegal, and can increase depression and psychosis.

The Human Body Produces Cannabinoids

We know, sounds like science fiction, doesn’t it? But it’s true

Our bodies contain endocannabinoid systems, or ECS, complex cell-signaling systems with receptors in your central nervous system and peripheral nervous systems, particularly our immune cells. Research into ECS is still in its infancy – having first been identified in the 1990s – but scientists have so far uncovered that the ECS plays a role in regulating various body functions including sleep, mood, memory, and reproduction.

Our biological cannabinoids can help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, support the immune systems and ease symptoms of autoimmune disorders. It’s also been found that using CBD products as an additional supplement can help maintain our endocannabinoid systems, alongside the relaxation support offered by CBD supplements. A win win!

CBD Can Help Cancer Patients Manage Symptoms

Cancer is one of our most prolific diseases and innovative research is consistently increasing life expectancy and quality of life for sufferers year on year. Amongst this research, CBD has been touted to be a worthwhile aide to help cancer patients manage their symptoms.  

Cancer Research UK reports laboratory research so far as shown that CBD can cause cancer cell death or block cancer cell growth, stop the development of blood vessels which are needed for tumors to grow, and reduce inflammation. Although studies have had mixed results and more research is needed before anything conclusive can be decided, early discoveries are promising for the capabilities of CBD in cancer management.

CBD May Be a Helpful Supplement for Children

As CBD is non-intoxicating and non-euphoric, it is safe to give to most children in certain formats. In this article from Daily CBD, reviewed by Dr Abraham Benevides, M.D., gummies and low percentage oils are cited as the most appropriate means for CBD intake for children.

CBD supplements have been cited to help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, asthma and nausea, as well as some skin conditions. It is, of course, essential to monitor CBD dosage when supplementing for children, and certain products – such as vapes – are not appropriate.

Doozy Vape Co

E-liquid Brand Case Study: Doozy

Who are Doozy?

Doozy Vape Co is proud to be recognised as a multi-award-winning premium E-liquid brand. Established in 2015 and defined by a genuine passion for vaping, Doozy has grown to become one of the world’s most distinctive vape brands, specialising in high quality E-liquid in a unique variety of flavours.

Our Business Partnership

Doozy and Xyfil have a long shared history in the vaping industry. Both E-liquid manufacturers were established at a similar time and are based in the North of England. We work closely on packaging, labelling, design and our co-packing manufacturing arrangements. We understand the true value of working together in this market for our mutual benefit; a business partnership we look to extend to other start-ups and established companies alike. Xyfil is experienced in providing flexible co-packing arrangements whereby a company can supply us with their e-juice flavour concentrates and we then complete the process by adding PG, VG and our award-winning Nicotine salt formula.

What are Nicotine Salts?

Nicotine salts are found naturally in tobacco leaves and consist of nicotine and salicylate, which we then extract to produce our E-liquids. Nic salt represent an evolutionary step in quality from standard freebase nicotine, offering vapers enhanced nicotine delivery, greater satisfaction and a far smoother experience.

Xyfil’s advanced Nicotine Salt formula is designed to provide an exceptionally smooth vaping experience at high nicotine strengths. Naturally found in tobacco leaves, salicylate lowers the pH of nicotine, reducing irritation on the throat and providing enhanced nicotine delivery. Our formula is engineered for low vapour production, bringing an element of stealth and discretion to your vaping.

What can Xyfil do for you?

We are one of the leading UK E-liquid, personal care products and CBD manufacturers supporting brands worldwide as their businesses develop. We provide end-to-end white label manufacturing services, helping you develop your brand at every stage from flavour development to the design and production of your liquids.

White Label Production for CBD & Vape Juice Products

What Is CBD White Label Production?

CBD white label production is the provision of products from a supplier to a company who will present the products as their own under their own branding. This means of production has been an absolute asset to the retail industry, and offers a wealth of benefits to businesses across the globe. It remains a mainstay for trades of all sizes, and can be a useful option for new startups wanting to launch their brand finding themselves limited in terms of funds and resources
