Most Popular E-Liquid Flavours for 2022

The vaping market is often flooded with flavours, new variations of well-loved fruits, re-imaginings of flavours you thought you knew and inspired combinations that create new experiences. Last year the most popular flavour for vape juice was certainly raspberry, or blue raspberry to be precise. What’s not to love about the soft, sweet taste of raspberries or zingy blue raspberry?

Keep in the loop with the most in-demand flavours with us here at Xyfil.

This year’s in-demand flavour

It may come as no surprise that vapers are choosing to revisit beverage flavours this year. Maybe it’s the taste of nostalgia vapers are craving but soda/beverage E-Liquids are proving popular for 2022.

What’s great for brands is the variety of flavours available in the beverage section to choose from. The top two are certainly Cola and Lemonade, flavours that have been done before, but the introduction of flavours combined with these have taken the market by storm.

Flavours like Cola Lime and Pink Lemonade are dominating and it’s not hard to see why. These fun and fruity flavours can often be enjoyed all day long, as long as the sweetness is managed well. Creating the familiar fizzy taste is certainly a challenge for any flavour mixologist but making the flavours as accurate as possible is paramount. But you don’t have to stop just there with Cola Lime, there are a variety of flavours that compliment Cola perfectly and can be found in other places outside of the vaping market.

Have you thought about the next big Cola flavour? Perhaps the next flavour you should be creating Is Cola Cherry? Or perhaps Vanilla Cola for those looking to create a smoother taste? The possibilities are almost endless and Xyfil can help take you on that flavour journey.

Develop your next beverage E-Liquid with Xyfil

Our in-house mixologists create the flavours you want and vapers desire. We welcome the challenge to create new and never-seen-before flavours or impressive new twists on those familiar favourites that hook vapers from the first puff. With thousands of high-quality ingredients to create hundreds of flavours, every flavour we create is unique to each brand. We ensure that each flavour is somewhat unique in some way be it in sweetness, underlying flavours, strength and more.

How to Create a White Label Vape Brand 2022

With the vaping industry reaching $20.4 Billion globally in 2021, and it’s expected to reach $30 Billion by 2027, it’s still viable to make your place in the vaping market. Likewise, the CBD market in the UK sat at £700 million in 2021 with it expected to surpass one billion GBP by 2025. So, what better way to hit the ground running and get products to market quickly than with white label manufacture?

The difference between White Label and OEM

White label manufacture E-Liquids are products that have already been developed, tested, produced, and sold before. Here at Xyfil, we offer white label manufactured products across vape juice, CBD products and cosmetic products. White label products are a tried and tested method for brands to enter new markets easily, and affordably.

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturing) is a much more tailormade process of creating E-Liquids, CBD and cosmetic products. OEM E-Liquids for example, are much more unique due to brands designation specific flavour combinations that won’t be seen elsewhere or benefit from unique bottles or formulas. This method of manufacture is more costly and takes more time but offers much more complexity and uniqueness to make products your own.

Why choose White Label manufacture

Brands that go through our white label manufacturing process benefit from our award-winning formulas and flavours. These products have already been developed carefully with our R&D team and produced using high-quality ingredients. They also benefit from being fully tested and compliant with TPD and Middle East regulations. This means that with just a little effort and decision making on your part, you can have products on the market in no time at all.

With all the fuss taken out of the process, white label manufactured E-Liquids is not only quick but cost-effective. And the work doesn’t stop there. We don’t just produce E-Liquids but provide every service you may need to get your product from bottle to shelf.

How We Help You Develop Your Flavours – Flavour Development

One of the vital aspects of product development and E-Liquid manufacture is of course the flavours. Flavours are what set E-Liquids truly apart and secure brand loyalty with flavours that are well-received and well-loved by users. Of course, the vaping industry is full of products with similar flavours which can make it hard to get your products to stand out. That’s where we step in.

Suleman Umar, Product Developer Manager

“We are here to support your brand every step of the way. No matter what your product is or what services you require from us, I’ll be your first point of call in helping develop your products to the specifications you need.”

As a product development manager, I’m involved in most aspects of product creation. From market research, development, compliance, budget control, flavour creation, and working alongside our creative studio to get the perfect look that symbolises what the products are – I’m there the entire way.

Having in-depth knowledge of compliance within the industry, across various countries, helps accelerate the development of flavours that are guaranteed to be approved by consumers and respective authorities. Not only that, but I work exclusively with many of our clients to produce their award-winning brands, develop new flavours never-seen-before and provide insights into the industry.

What does the Flavour Development Department do?

The journey always begins with a customer brief handed to us by the sales team. This usually relays all the necessary information from a customer that they’re looking to receive from us, be it flavour profiles, certain ingredients, overall theme etc. We then create a checklist to go through for flavour development – is the flavour intended to be candy sweet or subtly sweet? Is the flavour complex or simple? Is it a combination of flavours?

This process itself can be lengthy as we must first develop the flavour, especially if it’s a new or a unique variation – this is often the most challenging and rewarding type of flavours to create. Once we’ve put together the flavour it must then be tested with the customer, and this can go back and forth a few times until the perfect flavour is made. Even the slightest adjustment can mean a lot in terms of flavour – if it’s not quite got that fruity sweet flavour the customer imagined then we work on it some more to ensure it does.

We specialise in providing what the customer wants and need. Every flavour we create will be somewhat unique to them; a specific flavour profile that won’t be available elsewhere. Even with common flavours like fruits or menthol, we like to ensure that your flavours stand out from the crowd. And with over 2000 flavours already created, there’s still a lot of room for variety.

What does the Flavour Development department have to offer?

Here at Xyfil, we offer a truly unique, customer-focused service that puts the customer at the forefront of every decision. No matter which department you are dealing with, including Flavour Development and R&D, our goal is to make sure that you get exactly what you need. I love tinkering with flavours so when customers come forward with requests for unusual flavours, I’m more than happy to get working on them. No flavour is too strange and making each flavour unique to a brand is crucial.

You can always expect communication with us as we are very hands-on with helping our customers. There’s a reason why our customers develop with us and keep coming back, and it’s our guarantee to provide customers with exactly what they want. Whether it’s white label manufactured E-Liquids and CBD, or OEM, we aim to provide any service a customer may need when looking to take a product to market. The Flavour Development team is here to help you create unique flavours and, combined with our other departments, help you develop products that fly off the shelves.

E-Liquid Brand Case Study: Drop E-Liquids

Who are Drop E-Liquids?

Drop E-Liquids offer a range of fantastical fruit flavour combos that create sweet and sharp, refreshing vapes. Fruit Drop aims to create authentic fruit flavours that vapers crave and create exciting fruit blends you can’t get anywhere else. They also include a range of candy-inspired flavours called Sweet Drop, focusing on classic British sweet flavours.

Fruit Drop boasts flavours such as Citrus Lychee Ice, Passion Fruit Mango & Pineapple and Grapefruit Blood Orange. There are even a couple of candy-inspired flavours as part of their Sweet Drop range from Drumstick to the classic Rhubarb & Custard.

This range of E-Liquids is offered as 100ml shortfills with a 70/30 (VG/PG) ratio that is ideal for Sub-Ohm vaping.

With a simplistic design, these E-Liquids can seem unassuming, but the minimalist approach works well in drawing the eye to their signature ‘drop’ design. Each drop features a distinct blend of colours that suggest the flavours of each bottle.

Who manufactures Fruit Drop?

Drop E-Liquids are manufactured here in the UK by Xyfil Ltd, a premium UK manufacturer of E-Liquid and CBD products. We work with Drop E-Liquids to provide the base ingredients for their chosen flavour profiles, to create unique blends you’ll find nowhere else. To make sure the flavours are authentic we only use premium food-grade ingredients sourced from the UK and overseas. Some brands choose a specific flavour blend to create a very specific type of profile, while others choose a flavour for us to recreate. We are able to work with as much or as little information towards a brand’s vision to help them create the product they wish to take to market.

All E-Liquids are mixed and bottled in our ISO 9001 accredited facilities which go through stringent checks to ensure the safety and quality of each batch. Throughout the process we work closely with Drop E-Liquids to make sure that flavours remain consistent, and that the brand’s image remains the same throughout the process. A premium brand means premium quality. In such a large market where flavours mean everything, coming up with new and unique blends is what sets brands apart. Ensuring that the flavour blends match up to a brand’s expectations is key.

Drop E-Liquids provide their own artwork for their shortfill bottles, which we apply during the production process. Some brands require us to design and create their ideal packaging and logos. Drop E-Liquids however already had a clear image of their intended packaging. Applying a brand’s existing artwork to the products we manufacture for them is but one part of the bespoke service we can provide.

From the ground up to the store shelf

Xyfil offers a bespoke manufacturing service for E-Liquids and CBD products, with a choice of white label or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). No matter what step of the process your product is at, be it production, manufacturing, or development, Xyfil can help take your brand from paper to reality.

We work closely with our customers to ensure their vision becomes a reality whether it’s in flavour development, production, bottling, packaging, or any stage of the process. If you are looking for help with E-Liquid compliance and regulations, we are also able to provide this service by submitting compliance for you or guiding your brand on the right path.

If you’d like to work with us to manufacture your next premium E-Liquid brand, get in touch today to find out more.

Is it Profitable to Start a Vape Shop in 2022?

It’s fair to say that the vaping industry really is booming especially in the UK where vaping is positively approved by the government and health organisations. So, it’s no surprise if you’re looking to set up your own vape store and jump in on the action. With the industry continuing to grow there’s always room for more, but are there problems of oversaturation?

In some cities, it’s hard to not go more than 10 metres without seeing a vape shop. And let’s not forget that the pandemic has shaken the high street and retail as we know it – and not just retail but manufacturing has felt the burn of the pandemic. So, in 2022, is it still viable to open a vape shop and be profitable?

COVID’s effects on the high street

Many businesses are noticing that brick-and-mortar store traffic has decreased since 2020, and this is not limited to vape stores. Across the board, after the numerous lockdowns and worries of transmitting the virus, many stores have seen decreased footfall and unfortunately many have had to close due to this. However now, months after a very successful vaccine rollout some sort of normality seems to have returned and with it, shoppers have started to return to the high street.

Although it wouldn’t be pertinent to ignore the rise in online sales due to the pandemic. During COVID, online stores saw a massive boom in popularity and the new, convenient option that had become forced on people, has remained popular. But it’s not to say that brick-and-mortar stores are not viable anymore. On the contrary, there are many things a physical store can offer over online sites that are likely to have people walking in your store. And optimising for those reasons is certainly key to success.

The competitive market

The vaping market is probably one of the most competitive out there. Whether you’re looking to start your own brand or open your own retail store, there are undoubtedly many more like it, out there. Opening an online store is even worse due to the competition no longer being restricted to your area. Do you choose to open a shop in a city that already has ten vape shops, or a small village without a single one?

Launching into the vaping industry certainly has the potential to become a profitable one, but the road there could be long. And this industry often faces changes to regulations that could result in problems with products, stocking or selling. Yet navigating these issues are all part-and-parcel of the task of opening a business and turning profit. And the same can be said for those looking to create a new brand of E-Liquid to take to market. All it takes is finding what makes you or your product different and learning how to market it into something that creates profit.

How to start a vape store successfully

Here are some of the top ways that you can make sure that your vape store or brand take off successfully.

Complete market research

For your products and services to be well-received by consumers, you must know who your target consumers are and what it is they are looking for. Market research helps provide you with this essential information from your competitors and existing products. No one wants to launch a product that simply gets swept away by other similar ones. Finding your niche or targeting consumers’ un-fulfilled needs is key to success. Read more about the importance of market research.

Make things simpler & cost effective

Partner with an E-Liquid wholesale manufacturer such as Xyfil – we can provide high quality white label products to get on your shelves quicker, or OEM for tailor-made products. Not only this but you get access to our award-winning nicotine salts and high-quality ingredients. Our people become your people and our goal is to help you be the very best you can be. Don’t worry about having to source your materials, setting up a lab, testing and reporting of liquids, registering products for compliance – we sort it all for you. Whether it’s creating a new brand of looking for business insights, Xyfil are ready to help with over 10 years of experience in the vaping industry.

Get your branding right

We’re not just talking your shop name and logo, but also the layout of your store. Is there a particular feel you want to bring to your vape shop that sets it apart from others? Learning how to place products effectively around the store can naturally help a potential customer see products you want them to and entice them to buy. The creative studio here at Xyfil not only have years of experience in building brands, labelling, logos and POS material for products, but have also worked on designs for layouts within stores to help drive sales.

Sell quality, UK manufactured products – be compliant

It is vitally important that compliance be at the forefront of your thoughts when looking to purchase vaping products for your store. Although it might seem ideal to stock these ‘high demand’ products, many of them are illegal by UK guidelines. Recently there have been great shakeups within the high street to ensure that stores selling vape products not only stock only compliant products but adhere to the age restrictions for said products. Making sure to stick to the rules and regulations will mean you miss out on hefty fines or worse.

Products manufactured in the UK bring their own sense of quality and of course are TPD/TRPR compliant. Here at Xyfil we are proud to create premium UK manufactured E-Liquids that have gone on to win awards for our flavours and out nicotine salt formula.

But above all else, providing products that potential customers are looking for, and are in demand, is a way to ensure satisfaction. Listen to your customers for feedback and keep an eye on trends but don’t focus too much on short-lived trends that are likely to pass in a month – autumn inspired flavours aren’t likely to be popular once spring comes round!

Industry news – Danish Government Proposes Nicotine Ban

In a move that mirrors New Zealand’s prior shift in nicotine-containing products, Denmark is following in their steps. Recently, the Danish government have proposed a nicotine ban to anyone born in 2010 or after. No doubt in hopes of ensuring future generations remain nicotine-free.

The proposed bill is believed to help reduce the number of smokers, coming into effect in 2028 – when those born in 2010 turn 18. From then on, the legal age requirement for buying nicotine-containing products will increase each year. Importantly though, it is noted that they are not banning the use of nicotine-containing products, just the ability to buy them. So, what does this mean?

There are concerns that this style of strategy fails to consider tobacco harm reduction by limiting items such as E-Cigarettes and E-Liquid. Any vaping product that contains nicotine will also fall under this ruling and therefore manufacturers and brands need to be on the lookout.

Compliance labelling – Keep your vaping products compliant

These new market changes can happen quickly and sometimes before companies have a chance to react. Luckily this occurs less and less nowadays but changes to regulations do still occur. And these require brands and companies to rethink their strategies and their products.

Lately, there have been many countries that have started to lean towards banning flavours. This has resulted in brands having to limit their flavour lists or create whole new ranges to remain relevant. Similarly, the move towards changing the legal age for purchasing nicotine-containing items may require brands to change up their product warning labels each year, to mirror the changing age limit.

This could be quite costly for companies having to re-print/re-package their products each year. Or perhaps compliance guidelines for these countries may take on a new approach?

In our opinion, we believe it is possible that governments will change the legislation for product labelling for nicotine-containing products. Currently, to be TPD compliant, vape products that contain nicotine must have an ’18’ age restriction symbol on the packaging and labels. Thereby it could be very likely that a new symbol to signify age restriction is created and will become a requirement for products to be sold in affected countries. But at this moment in time, there have been no talks on the subject, possibly due to the legislation not yet coming into effect. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know.

The ability to cope with market changes

At Xyfil we are actively on the alert for any market changes that could impact brands and help them manoeuvre the market. Whether it’s updates to regulations, changing flavour recipes, updating information on product labelling and more, we’re here to help.

Our in-house compliance team are dedicated to ensuring that your products meet the necessary requirements for the market you wish to target. And with our 10+ years of experience in manufacturing, R&D, production, flavour development, logistics and more, Xyfil are more than ready to help.

E-Liquid Brand Case Study: Supergood

Who is Supergood?

Supergood is an award-winning brand of Nicotine Salts and shortfills that specialise in delivering big flavours, and premium vaping experiences. Founded through friendship and a passion for vaping, Supergood has quickly risen to become one of the most popular brands out there.

With many award-winning flavours under its belt, Supergood features dessert and cocktail ranges that focus on flavour combinations unlike any other. Tall, dark and handsome, their dessert flavours offer waves of buttery sweetness unique to their brand. Or if you are looking for something light and refreshing, their moreish cocktail collection is bursting with zingy flavour.

Supergood’s packaging designs reflect a simplicity that allows its flavours to do the talking. Home of big flavours and big personality, Supergood are a brand of E-Liquids not to be missed. Between their signature branding and flavours that pack a punch, Supergood is a UK brand of E-Liquids with a strong presence.

Who manufactures Supergood?

Supergood’s premium E-Liquids are manufactured in the UK by us here at Xyfil. Although we primarily work as a white label manufacturing company, we also offer OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturing) capabilities for brands with clear designs and aspirations. Supergood provide the foundations, the design and the ideas; we provide the materials and manpower to bring their creations to life.

We work very closely with our friends at Supergood to help them produce products tailored to their specifications. From flavour research & development, bulk manufacturing E-Liquids and handling compliance labelling, we are proud to work for this amazing brand.

OEM Manufacturing

You have already more than likely heard the term OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturing) before. Xyfil offers OEM as a method of liquid manufacture for E-Liquids, CBD and more.

The benefits of choosing OEM are that you, as a brand, can make more decisions and create a more bespoke product selection than that of white label manufactured products. This could be bespoke bottles, bespoke complex flavour profiles, personal choice of E-Liquid ratios and more.

Whereas White Label Manufacturing offers a quicker and cheaper solution for getting a brand onto shelves, OEM helps create unique products that stand out from the crowd.

Tailor your products to your exact preferences and specifications with Original Equipment Manufacturing services that cover R&D, flavour development, design, compliance, production and distribution. OEM allows you to decide on bespoke elements to create your products exactly the way you imagined them.

What Xyfil can do for you

As one of the leading UK E-Liquid, CBD and personal care manufacturers, we support brands worldwide as they develop. We provide end-to-end Original Equipment Manufacturing and white label manufacturing services, helping you develop your brand at every stage from flavour development to the design and production of your liquids. We offer TPD E-liquid compliance, regulatory compliance and E-Liquid analysis so that you can have confidence in the quality and safety of your products.

Whether you are looking to create the next big shortfill range or use our award-winning Nicotine Salts to take your brand to the next level, we can help.

Contact us now to see how we can help you take the vape market by storm.

Creative Studio – Branding, Labelling, Mockups and more

Taking your brand from idea to reality doesn’t stop at the manufacturing and production of your products. Designing quality, eye-catching product labels, boxes and giving your brand life is another one of our key aspects. Looking to manufacture E-Liquids? Let us help you not only manufacture and produce but create the designs that will take the market by storm.

Here at Xyfil, our Creative Studio encompasses many creative aspects of building a brand or product. Making your products stand out on the shop floor and online is a passion of our creative team. Meet our Creative Studio and learn more about the creative process behind brand creation.

Jack Tidy, Creative Studio Manager

“Whether you only have an idea, or are already halfway done with your project, the creative studio at Xyfil is a swiss army knife of creative discipline. We can join you at any stage of your journey and see it through to the end in a polished & professional manner.”

As the Studio Manager, my main responsibility is to intercept internal and external demands and manage the creative workflow for my team. Communicating with customers is key within the Creative Studio to get a deeper understanding of the brand/products we are working with. It’s not uncommon to have meetings with our clients to discover their needs and what they wish to achieve.

Translating these into actionable briefs and communicating between my team and clients is honestly something I truly enjoy. And I can wholeheartedly say my team also share this passion for our work.

What does the Creative Studio Offer?

Our Creative Studio exists to meet the demands of customers that need support for creative work. This could be those looking to create their brand and product range from the ground up. Or it could be for those who simply need product labelling and packaging updating for compliance. We work with complete brand concepts and creation to finalising product ranges. Plus we go the extra step by producing creative content for POS (printed media, digital web banners, media kits etc), all to help you and your brand hit the ground running.

There are those who already have an existing range/brand and are simply looking to update their labelling and packaging. We work closely with our Compliance team to update packaging and labels to suit global compliance measures. Our studio aims to provide an all-timeline service where we can help you through any step of the process, and after.

We are also capable of revitalising brands, bringing them into the modern market by updating their logo and labelling. This could be to make them more compliant or to rejuvenate the brand with a fresh new look. For example, The Big Tasty brand used to look very different but went through a design phase to uplift the logo and labelling to match the modern vaper. The designs became less flashy and more contemporary in a sleek, clean look that has certainly proven popular. The purpose of the design was to announce 'big, bold flavours' and we can certainly say we achieved this.

How is the day-to-day with the Creative Studio?

It really differs on a day-to-day basis as our Creative Studio encompasses a spectrum of creative needs. This includes the likes of content writing, digital marketing, graphic design and reprographic design. On a day, our designers could be working on new brochures or flavour cards to promote brands, to designing labels and packaging or product concepts.

We work closely with operations to intercept the demands of our clients to meet tight schedules. Pre-empting demands comes naturally as we work closely with our clients to create an understanding of their brand ideals and goals. For brands that are starting from the very beginning, the Creative Studio can help with logo concepts, brand name/range name concepts, product labelling and packaging all the way to product images and media kits with digital creative content.

The Creative Studio in Action

Since having helped found and grow the Creative Studio into what it is today, we have helped over 250 global brands. We have successfully supplied creative content for approximately 25 million units across different disciplines, across the globe. Not only for UK based brands but those overseas too, supplying creative work for E-Liquid and CBD products, but we're not limited to just that. We have even worked on more bespoke items such as hand sanitisers, MCT oils and cough syrups.

The Creative Studio covers a range of product ranges with no task too small or too big. We have proven successes with the brands we work with including our own, Pod Salt. Our range of Nicotine Salts has seen global acclaim with strong ideals that are carried through by the branding and POS that we’ve created and supplied. Our goal with Pod Salt was to create a premium brand through and through, so when potential customers look at Pod Salt products, this is exactly what they see. From the packaging to the labelling, to the POS in stores, Pod Salt’s message is clear, and its successes speak for itself.

Building a brand from the ground up offers challenges that my team are only too happy to complete. White label manufacturing gives us the chance to help create something totally new with the goal in mind to make your brand stand out from the rest. If you’re looking to start up a new E-Liquid brand and wish to choose Xyfil as your white label manufacturer in the UK, I assure you that you won’t be disappointed.

Protecting Brand Equity – White Label Manufacture

Protecting your brand and recipe is of the utmost importance to us which is why we employ strict procedures to ensure your brand equity remains protected. We wish to instil the utmost confidence in our customers when handling their brands, to make sure that products are not only safe and high-quality but also secure.

How do we protect brand equity?

In an industry ruled by flavours, trying to create new and unique flavour E-Liquids and vape devices, or creating higher quality flavours, is key. The last thing you want after all your hard work of establishing your brand’s flavours is to lose them. To ensure that brands’ flavours remain protected we established a series of procedures.

When our lab receives the flavour profile for your E-Liquids, they gather the necessary ingredients to make the batch of vape juice. However, each flavour ingredient is given a codename. When is orange not orange? When you are protecting a brand’s equity! To ensure that recipes remain confidential, those that process and produce the E-Liquids only ever see the codename version of flavour ingredients. This allows us to have fewer eyes on the actual recipe.

Once the flavour has been developed, you can then sample the flavours with our Flavour Specialist. Tweak and update the flavours and strengths depending on what you want to achieve or get ready to bulk produce it – we’re with you every step of the way.

Protecting your brand name

Ensuring brand equity doesn’t just stop at your flavour recipes. Making sure that your brand name continues to promote consistent quality is another one of our priorities. Mistakes can not only be costly in raw materials but in name. That’s why we employ a huge range of quality control procedures at every step of the process. Thanks to our training solidified by our GMP and ISO certification, we can produce high-quality products in safe environments to ensure the safety of your products.

Throughout the flavour creation process, your E-liquids go through a series of quality checks before mixing, before lab testing and after batch testing. Every step of the way there are quality checks to ensure zero errors. Up until the products leave our door, we can offer full batch-tracing at every step so that if errors do occur, we are able to quickly and efficiently go back to the source and correct it.

Our production warehouse is fully equipped to allow us to fulfil your bottling, filling and labelling requirements, as well as flavour development and E-Liquid manufacture. As one of the leading UK E-Liquid manufacturers, we are also able to ensure that compliance, quality, and safety is achieved for every product we produce.

If you would like to talk to us about manufacturing your latest product or kickstarting your own brand, contact us now.

Flavour Production, Quality Testing & Nicotine Extraction

Providing high-quality products and services is at the core of our mission here at Xyfil. We are one of the leading E-Liquid manufacturers in the UK, providing E-Liquid manufacture opportunities and more.

One of the key areas of our business is our ISO 9001 and GMP certified laboratory, and ISO 7 clean rooms where much of the manufacturing of E-Liquids begin. Meet the people behind the award-winning nicotine salt solutions and custodians of product quality control.

Nikita Mhatre – Production Manager & Quality Assurance

“We have implemented a quality management system which helps the business with planning and execution of delivering a quality product. From a production perspective, this means a companywide commitment to eliminate errors at every stage of the product development process - from product design to manufacturing.  A recent acquisition of GMP accreditations have also boosted the credibility of the company and created a competitive edge in an increasingly crowded market. The implementation of GMP standards inline with current quality standards remains essential as it helps to ensure consistency, acceptability of product quality and safety of the products also remains integral.”

As production manager for our lab, I oversee the formulation of products and work to create an effective and efficient task force. This is ensured by planning and delegating work to meet daily production goals. Not only this but I run the procurement for lab items along with the key E-Liquid ingredients, ensuring only the highest quality of food-grade PG, VG and pharma-grade nicotine. Products are not released from the laboratory to the production lines until they’ve been past final quality checks. It’s an important task that helps ensure quality and safety.

By implementing root cause analysis and taking corrective actions, I have helped to remove production constraints and improve product quality since taking the post. Our laboratory staff see continuous improvement and training to ensure the quality of products that are processed. As part of managing my team, recruiting for new positions, and ensuring my staff have no issues and work in optimum conditions, is paramount.

What does the day-to-day look like for Xyfil’s lab?

I can honestly say every day is a new day. Days can differ depending on the products and formulations we are running for our customers. We have six talented lab technicians and two supervisors who run our lab work.

At the start of the day, lab technicians are given a recipe list that contains encrypted flavour names to protect customers’ recipes. Quality checks go underway immediately to check the quality of the gathered ingredients and equipment. To minimise on wastage of ingredients and nicotine formulations, we run QC checks with tight parameters. Many formulations can be re-used whilst still holding a premium quality, but should they fail QC checks then these are disposed of.

Every stage of the process, from weighing flavours to the mixing of the ingredients, is overseen by a supervisor to reduce any possible human error. All work is signed off to allow for full tracking of the product so that if an issue does arise, we can track back the work and amend it to reduce any impact that it could create.

Once the batch is produced, a sample can be gathered after being authorised by the supervisor, to go for testing. This checks for irregularities, impurities, nicotine strength, consistency and more. After all these checks and tests have been completed and signed off, the product can then move to production.

We are constantly looking to improve our processes to create even more streamlined methods. Already we’ve seen improvements thanks to GMP standards and our hard work to achieve GMP certification. Having been able to increase our production capacity is a clear sign of our dedication to continual improvement.

E-Liquid suppliers with award-winning nicotine salts

There are two meaens of production that we provide with our laboratory facilities.

We provide bulk production services for white label E-Liquid manufacture. This includes us gathering the E-Liquid ingredients and flavourings to the spec of the customer’s recipe, producing the E-Liquids and flavours, and packaging these for our customers.

Our lab also offers a blending process for white label E-Liquids. This process relies on pre-existing formulations that we have developed and produced that are ready to go straight into production for customers’ products.

Due to the unique versatility of our lab facilities, we also offer ad-hoc requests for a variety of products, tailored to your needs. If you have an idea for a new nicotine-based or CBD product we can surely help. Apart from our white label capabilities, we offer bespoke solutions for product manufacture and development.

With our extensive resources and renowned nicotine salts formula, we are even able to offer the bulk dispatch of flavour ingredients and pre-mixed, finished nic salts for customers to use with their own formulations. Our aim is to help you create award-winning E-Liquid brands and flavours.

Ensuring premium quality E-Liquids and CBD

At Xyfil when we say premium quality, we mean it. I am proud to say that we are among the first E-Liquid manufacturers in the country to be certified to GMP standards, with ISO 22716:2007 certification recently having been reached.

One of the ways we continue to pride ourselves in our premium E-Liquids is through our method for nicotine extraction. Our laboratory boasts an HSE verified nicotine enclosed system for nicotine extraction, to ensure that staff are protected during the process and that the quality of nicotine is without impurities. Much like this, at every stage of the process in the lab, we run tight quality control checks that are repeatedly checked by supervisors to complete thorough analyses.

For example, before an E-Liquid formulation can be assembled, all ingredients and tools must be gathered and double-checked to ensure their quality and efficiency. Only after these pre-checks are fulfilled can the formulation be put together. Mixed flavours and batches are first checked for any impurities or issues before being sent for testing and analysis. Only after passing these initial checks can batches be sent for testing, and upon passing all criteria, then be sent onto production lines for bottling.

Overall, I’m proud of the team I have created and the lab I have helped flourish into one of the many necessary hearts of the business. If there was one thing I would say to any potential customer looking to have us manufacture their E-Liquids, it would be that you will never be disappointed. I look forward to working with you in the future.
