Flavor Development

Flavour Development – E-Liquid and CBD

E-liquid and CBD product sales margins don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, some sources predict they’re set to climb by at least 20% between now and 2027. Now is the perfect time to get ahead of the curve.

Here at Xyfil we are experts in helping you develop your CBD or E-Liquid product, from initial idea development right through to creation, regulation compliance, and packaging design. The market for E-Liquids is competitive with new brands/products appearing every day. To stand out in this growing market and get ahead you must get creative when developing your next product flavour. 

Define Your E-Liquid with Flavour

With so much competition now on the market, offering something that’s new but has the staying power to build a loyal fanbase is key. Your product packaging and logo may be enticing to new customers, but what really keeps them coming back is the experience of a great product. Flavours are obviously a big factor in a customer’s choice when picking their E-Liquid or CBD vape. So whether you are looking to bring a new variation to an existing, popular flavour, or a completely new experience, research is key. Much research has found that fruit flavours rank highly amongst most vapers, albeit only by a little more. This doesn’t mean that other flavours such as menthol, desserts, drinks and tobacco should be ignored, it means there’s room for improvement which very well could be your next venture!

Let us lead you through the best route for flavour development.

E-Liquid Essentials: Safety Regulations 

First things first, ensure your flavour producers are safe, regulated, and reliable. Not only is this an essential for sale in store or online across the UK and European Union, it ensures safety and consistency in your product, and builds trust in your customer base. 

Our  ISO 7 Laboratory testing at  Xyfil meets the highest standards of compliance, meeting full Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), toxicology and safety analysis requirements. Alongside stringent testing and safety measures and a dedicated, expert team of scientists, we maintain full traceability of all of our products. Throughout the production process, we closely monitor the quality and safety of our product, through employee traceability reports, raw material sample collections, and comprehensive recording of ingredients and product processes. 

Working with Xyfil means working with an industry leading team you can trust. When you’re trying to get ahead of the competition, make sure your production is as straightforward as possible and save yourself the stress. We’ve got you covered.

Creating A Bestselling Flavour 

Flavour development starts with focusing on your base taste. How are you going to create this, and what combination is key? Working with our dedicated team of flavour experts is central to developing a top selling CBD or E-Liquid product, with a flavour that sells.

Our flavour ranges are some of the broadest on the market - from apple and cherry menthol to blueberry ice, Cuban Crème and caramel latte. Our in-house research and development teams work consistently to explore and develop new flavour bases and combinations based on the latest scientific findings and insider market research. Whether you already know your exact flavour or have an idea on the taste you wish to create, Xyfil will help your dream become a reality.

Alongside a diverse and inspiring range of flavours to choose from, our cannabidiol is sustainably sourced from a premium, award-winning supplier. We also offer 100% organic CBD Isolate, full-spectrum CBD, MCT oil and flavoured terpenes as needed. 

How We Keep Your Flavour Safe

Confidentiality you can trust is essential to successful white label manufacturing. Setting your flavour, branding, and product marketing in stone will ensure your success over your competitors.  We’re proud to say our infrastructure, processes, and working systems are all centred around a secure protection of intellectual property and full confidentiality for all projects. Alongside compiling non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) as standard, we also include data masking measures such as advanced encryption and pseudonym systems. These methods ensure your product and specific flavour profiles are kept strictly between you and the dedicated project team in question.

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.

2019/20 - BBQ

Xyfil on the front line of hand sanitiser production in the UK.

Xyfil – Press Release

In 2020, Xyfil diverted 80% of its operations to the production of hand sanitisers and PPE. With over 50,000 bottles of alcohol-based sanitiser every day, our production facility is at the frontline of hand sanitiser manufacturing in the UK.

Our team from compliance, R&D, production, design and engineering have joined forces to support the project and get it off the ground in record-breaking time. Xyfil CEO Mr Hansrod stated:

Our clean rooms and physical bottle supplies on the ground make us ideally placed to help serve this emergency, but it is the desire of our teams and suppliers to help and feel useful at this time of need that has got this project realised. We are incredibly proud of the work everyone has done.

At over 50,000 bottles of alcohol-based hand sanitiser produced per day, Xyfil’s production facility is at the frontline of this national crisis, supporting NHS Trusts, local care homes and pharmacies that are currently struggling to provide enough hand sanitiser for everyone. Xyfil’s hand sanitiser formulation, which is as per WHO (World Health Organisation) guidelines, kills 99.9% of all bacteria - with a little something added to be kind to your hands.

The Preston manufacturer is well-equipped for large-scale bottling and labelling, with ISO 7 laboratory facilities and a fast-paced production line. As manufacturing operations diversify, Xyfil is recruiting extra staff during this time and retaining key employees on site to keep up with the high demand. E-liquid manufacturing remains active within the business and suppliers are still encouraged to make enquires and orders.

Supporting the local community is an important factor for the company directors. Hand sanitiser will be provided to local NHS Trusts, pharmacies and care home providers as a priority. The general public will also be able to purchase hand sanitiser products from Xyfil’s retail and distribution partner, My Vapery at www.myvapery.com.

Xyfil is calling all care home providers, pharmacies, NHS Trusts and other frontline institutions that require hand sanitiser to get in touch on 01772 888 778 or to visit www.xyfil.com for more information.
