FAQs About AIR FACTORY ®Products
Product ingredients are listed clearly on every bottle of AIR FACTORY® e-liquid: propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine (either in freebase or salt form), and flavors. All of our e-liquids are made using only high-quality, tested, and traceable ingredients. We use only United States Pharmacopeia (USP)-grade PG, VG, and nicotine in our products, and our flavors are formulated by Purilum, LLC and supported by rigorous scientific testing and data, including toxicological risk assessments by independent toxicologists.
Great question! Every AIR FACTORY® e-liquid product should be sold in a sealed Chubby Gorilla™ bottle with a fastened tamper-evident band, flow restricting nozzle, and a raised Chubby Gorilla™ logo molded onto the bottom of the bottle to indicate authenticity. All AIR FACTORY® products come in a branded box, and both the bottle label and box contain the FDA-required nicotine warning statement (WARNING: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.), as well as the California Prop 65 Warning and the statements “Not for sale to Minors” and “Sale only allowed in the United States.”
If you are purchasing AIR FACTORY®products from a retailer, we highly recommend researching the seller before you purchase from them. Typical signs to be wary of when purchasing e-liquid online:
Please Note: Any items purchased outside of AirFactoryEliquid.com cannot be replaced, credited, or refunded. However, if you suspect or come to find out that you were sold a counterfeited or inauthentic AIR FACTORY®product, please reach out to us with photo documentation and the details of your purchase. We take counterfeiting very seriously. Our customers mean the world to us, and we will do everything in our power to make it right.
All e-liquid changes color eventually. The main reasons for a color change are (a) nicotine strength, (b) age of the product, and (c) storage conditions. Nicotine salts, for example, tend to darken more quickly than freebase nicotine products because the salt products have a high concentration of nicotine. As e-liquid ages, or 'steeps', the flavor of the e-liquid may intensify as well. Our products usually leave our warehouse shortly after the date of manufacturing, so our products are fresh upon delivery. The “Best By” date on your bottle is the best indicator of freshness.
While very rare, it happens from time to time that there is an issue with the bottle or the contents of the bottle. Please let us know immediately if something is defective and document with pictures when something is wrong. If you purchased through AirFactoryEliquid.com, we will refund and/or replace anything wrong with your order. If you purchased your bottle from another website or vape shop, please contact them first. We cannot replace bottles not purchased directly from us. We do, however, appreciate being made aware of issues or concerns you have with purchases of AIR FACTORY®products made through third-party websites or retailers.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the U.S. agency responsible for regulating the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco and nicotine products to protect the public health and reduce tobacco and nicotine use by minors (i.e., individuals under 21 years old). This includes the regulation of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), such as e-cigarettes and e-liquid products. For more information about FDA’s approach to the regulation of ENDS, see FDA’s statement here.
A premarket tobacco application, or PMTA, is one of several pathways that an ENDS product manufacturer can seek an order from FDA allowing it to sell the ENDS product. When a company submits a PMTA for ENDS products, FDA reviews the product based on whether the product is “appropriate for the protection of public health,” considering the “risks and benefits of the product for the whole population, including users and non-users.” After September 9, 2020, all ENDS products on the market must have a PMTA (or other available pathway application) pending with FDA to be legally sold. Eventually, all ENDS products on the market will need to have marketing orders granted by FDA to be able to continue to be legally sold.
Typically, FDA considers the fact of a company’s filing a PMTA as confidential business information. However, on August 31, 2020, FDA announced that it plans to make publicly available a list of products that are subject to the September 9, 2020 PMTA deadline and for which FDA has received timely submissions. FDA has indicated that it may take some time to make that list available due to the confidentiality requirements. However, rest assured that a PMTA has been submitted for AIR FACTORY®products.The AIR FACTORY® PMTA was submitted electronically to FDA on September 3, 2020. We will keep you updated as to the status of the PMTA through e-mail updates and the News & Updates page on this website.
FAQs About Purchasing From Third-Party Websites or Retailers
If you have an issue with one of our products from another shop/online store, refunds and exchanges can only be facilitated through the store or website that you purchased from. Due to FDA regulations, we cannot replace items purchased outside of AirFactoryEliquid.com. Most importantly, we highly encourage you to research vendors before you purchase online (for more on that, see FAQ 2). Make sure the retailer is a trustworthy source, with ways to contact them and a published return/exchange policy before you go through with your transaction. If your attempts with the store of purchase are unsuccessful, please contact us and we will try our best to make it right.
