Why IVG Brands Have Stood the Test of Time

IVG Brands International Vapor Group has long been committed to excellence in our products. We have been a part of this market since its inception, and will continue to change, grow, and evolve with it as time progresses. So, what has enabled IVG vapor product brands to exist through the continuous changes in this market? Here’s a look.

Dedication to Innovation

We are interested in technology, and what is possible for the continuous evolution of vapor products, including e-cigarettes, mods, vaporizers, e-liquids, and all accompanying accessories. While creating things that are currently enjoyable, useful, and fulfilling, we want to go further. We have been dedicated to creating cutting edge products since the beginning, and it’s what we aim to do for the long term.

Understanding Our Clients

Understanding what our customers’ needs are has enabled us to create products that stand the test of time, while satisfying their needs. Quality, variety, and products they can trust are the tenets we never compromise because they are what our customers rely on IVG brands for.

Predicting the Future

No, we aren’t into metaphysics or anything like that; we study market trends, and what our customers are doing now, to understand what they’re going to want in the future. While we want satisfaction for our users in the present-day, we think several steps ahead, and are fully concerned with what they’re going to want down the road.

Quality Above All

Quality, as mentioned before, is not a factor we take lightly or sacrifice under any circumstances. Vapor products make life better, and we understand this. Creating items that perform as needed and do not falter when you need them most is what customers want, above all. This has allowed us to sell million of products over the years, and continuously create items that fit our customers’ needs. People want quality, especially when vaping since so much of the industry is loaded with bad quality. Knowing IVG brands such as VaporFi and DIRECTVAPOR put this aspect above any others, customers are more inclined to repeat their business.

So, why has IVG managed to last in an industry where the competition has been cut-throat? Because we understand the market, our customers, and have a passion for creating products that make life more enjoyable.

Common Myths About E-Cig Regulation

E-Cigarette Regulations and MythsRegulation continues to be a hot subject in the e-cigarette community due to the lack of definitive action and acute direction. The media has a tendency to blow things out of proportion, focusing on issues of little importance, and not paying attention to definitive facts, leaving the actual, factual reality from reaching the public. Ah, the media. Where would we be without their dramatically entertaining spin on real life? Sure, we’d be bored, but we’d probably be better informed. So, if you find yourself part of the vast majority who are interested in hearing the facts, and want to know the real facts behind e-cigarette regulation, here is a look at common e-cig myths, and the truth that backs them up.

  1. The FDA is trying to ban e-cigarettes.

False. The FDA is not willing to endorse or approve products until there has been a sufficient amount of research behind them. At this time, the FDA has no interest in banning electronic cigarettes, and has begun working with the e-cigarette industry. The ultimate goal is to provide a standard of safety, quality, and assurance that manufacturers can abide by to sell the safest products.

  1. The Gateway Effect.

Yes, a gateway to vapor, freedom, choices, and the ability to have nicotine without the smoke and tar. Not a gateway to tobacco! The myth that e-cigs propel users into a lifetime of traditional smoking, by re-normalizing smoking, is simply wrong. All scientific data on this one point in the opposite direction, with no evidence whatsoever that users start smoking as a result of vaping.

  1. All E-Liquids are Dangerous.

This could not be further from the truth because with so many brands on the market, all products do not fit into the same level of standards. You pay for what you get, and if you purchase liquids off some random guy on the street, who’s wearing a trenchcoat that opens up into a mini-street-corner shop, you can’t expect top quality, as you would with brand-assured products. All IVG brands are committed to quality, and standards of the highest level. We disclose what goes into our liquids, and quality is part of what we do on every level.

When it comes to regulations on e-cigarettes, they’re on the horizon. Fortunately, the FDA is going cautiously, and hopefully everything that regulations cover will be for the best in terms of safety, standards, quality, and benefitting for all parties involved.

Our Thoughts on PG & VG

Pg and VG CloudsWhen it comes to e-liquid companies, there’s so much discussion out there about what is safe, what isn’t, what is and is not regulated, what users should steer clear of, and what should absolutely not be on the market. As industry insiders, here is our take on the matter. We do not take the safety of our users lightly, and while regulation is not in place as of now to keep the e-liquids market in order, we are 100% committed to offering only the highest quality liquids available.

Safety Standards

Our brands South Beach Smoke and VaporFi carry some of the most extensive offerings of liquids in the industry. Our customers are overwhelmingly pleased with the level of quality that goes into these formulas, and the result shows in the performance; there are none that surpass. We manufacture liquids only in the USA, in a lab registered with the FDA as a tobacco manufacturer, and list all of our formulas on file with them for transparency.

PG: General Use is Common

PG, or propylene glycol is a controversial topic because some feel it should be avoided, while others feel it is safe for inhalation due to its being used in many products, both for body care and for ingestion. Some people do have allergies to it, which can pose a small level of risk, however these individuals have the option of using VG-based liquids. As for the rest of us, PG liquids are considered fine for general usage.

VG: Not all the Same

Vegetable glycerin can also bring up a discussion about standards. Where this is sourced from can be an issue, as sometimes it comes from peanuts, which can cause issues for individuals allergic to peanuts/ tree nuts. Ours is sourced from select producers of Malaysian palm for purity and safety.

Don’t Know What’s in E-Liquids?

Not with IVG brands. We disclose ingredients, and don’t use very many of them to produce our top-rated liquids, and we invite you to  think critically here: if e-liquids were so excessively dangerous, do you think they would be legally sold?

As far as e-liquids, PG, and VG go, their safety, and where standards are concerned, we are proud to be at the forefront of the industry.

Diacetyl: What it is & Why We Avoid it

Diacetyl Free E-LiquidsTalk of diacetyl has become rather common in the industry in recent times. While the vast majority of the public is unaware of what this chemical is, and why it is better not consumed, informed vapers typically avoid this stuff like the plague.

We are going to go into detail about what this mystery substance is, and why it’s a huge concern. All IVG brands’ e-liquids are diacetyl-free for a reason; we prefer to keep our goods free of questionable ingredients!

Diacetyl is typically found in food items (made for ingestion) such as popcorn, and it is regarded as generally safe when eaten. It conveys a flavor quite similar to sweet butter, however when inhaled it can have seriously dangerous effects.

In 2014, Dr. Konstantine Farsalinos, one of the foremost international researchers on e-cigarettes, conducted studies to test the levels of diacetyl vapers are exposed to. In samples of 160 different e-liquids, the majority of which were European brands, the results showed that 74% of the liquids tested contained at least some diacetyl, mainly in sweet flavors, and of these, those that did contain diacetyl were above legal limits.

The most frightening thing about diacetyl is that it is associated with a disease known as bronchiolitis obliterans, which has earned itself the nickname “popcorn lung.” Extended exposure to inhaling diacetyl after it has been heated over a long period of can cause this awful disease. The name is derived from its uncanny ability to cause a condition where the bronchioles become inflamed and constricted, causing one to be unable to breathe correctly, and essentially restricting the airflow in and out of the lungs. The user is often left with a dry cough, and wheezing. Furthermore, this disease is considered to be irreversible.

So our take on this matter? Simply avoiding diacetyl in our brands. It is not necessary to produce nicotine e-liquid, nor is it necessary to produce delicious sweet flavors. And we’d say, by the popularity of our many different e-liquid options across all of our brands, we are doing just fine without it!

Fast Times and Fast Evolution in the E-Cigarette Market

Modern VapingThe electronic cigarette industry has been around for just over a decade, internationally. The technology is ever-changing and the products as a whole have undergone various evolutions in such a short time. They are indicative of the era we now live in where technology is always progressing and constantly improving. Here’s a look at how a simple technological concept has challenged the tobacco industry like nothing before in just a few short years.

Before electronic cigarettes emerged and became a global phenomenon, nothing truly was able to compete with traditional cigarettes. Smokers who wanted an alternative had the option of nicotine gum, nicotine patches, and prescription drugs that came with their own possible side effects. The options were slim and not with a great success rate, often leaving smokers to their own devices, either going cold turkey or finding some other distraction in order to leave the smoke behind.

When e-cigarettes hit the market in China in 2003, they took off immediately. They were the first product of their kind to give smokers exactly what they wanted without the negatives. It was not long before the products started expanding overseas, throughout Asia and eventually into Europe and then the United States.

Since around 2009, e-cigarettes have been a commonplace item in the American market. Many brands have come and gone and those that have remained have been able to harness the technology to develop and craft products that resonate with users. In such a competitive market, offering quality and innovation goes very far.

This type of groundbreaking success is indicative of the magnitude of e-cigarettes. While in the beginning people might’ve assumed they were just a trend, time has shown that they are anything but. Because e-cigarettes are able to be marketed under strict terminology, they’re used by smokers effectively as an alternative, and give the absolute for users to have the type of experience they want, plus added benefits like freedom, cost savings, and versatility. This makes them the ultimate modern way to smoke.

International Vapor Group has been a part of this industry since the beginning, and our products are examples of how innovation and high-quality have gone a really long way in this market. All of our brands surpass user expectations, while maintaining a strict devotion to innovation.

How and Why E-Cigarettes Work

south_beach_smoke_batteriesElectronic cigarettes are considered a very modern option for smokers who want alternatives to the tradition version of smoking. So how and why are they replacing the conventional method? Here’s a look at how they work, and why they’re working so well traditional tobacco is getting overlooked in favor of vapor.

E-cigarettes are electronic devices. Powered by batteries, and rather simple in construction. Batteries come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and power levels, but one way or another, vaping cannot be done without a battery for power. They also contain an atomizer, which is the component responsible for heating up the liquid that holds the nicotine, and vaporizing it into the hit the user takes by puffing on the device. So, there is the device, a component that holds liquid (either a disposable cartridge that comes pre-filled, or a tank that the user fills), an atomizer, and a battery. That’s it, and all it takes for a traditional cigarette to be totally, utterly, replaced by technology without tobacco.

Why they work is simple; the design of this amazingly innovative technology has been perfected over time. Now, having been on the international market for over 10 years, e-cigarettes have seen many incarnations. So many styles and types exist, yet they all basically reel in the same result: nicotine-happy, satisfied vape-smokers.

E-cigarettes recreate the experience of smoking in every way. They satisfy the feeling of heavy smoke in the mouth. The repetitive motion of inhaling, exhaling, and having the hand-to-mouth desire satiated. There is flavor (and lots of it!), and the ability to have the habit in moments of boredom. Vaping is, simply, smoking redefined, reinvented, and revised for the modern smoker.

And with so many different smokers out there, there are now endless varieties to please nearly everyone. As makers of a variety of top brands in the market, we know firsthand. For a look at all of our different brands, check out our e-cigarette brand lineup here!

Benefits to Diverse Products

southbeachsmokeOne of the reasons we are proud to offer such a wide variety of different brands with different offerings is that having a large selection allows us to reach a very broad customer base. Our four different brands cater to a wide range of customers, everyone from smokers who are looking to try e-cigarettes for the first time to digital cigarette hobbyists and everyone in between; we cater to all who are looking for alternatives to traditional tobacco smoking.

Understanding that smokers are all unique and seeking a different type of experience, we are pleased to take advantage of the innovation and offer so many various choices for enjoying alternative smoking. Electronic cigarettes are available in so many variables, in so many different styles, with varying options, flavors, nicotine levels, performance choices, and the list goes on!

The one thing most smokers want though, regardless of the type of product is quality. It is a mainstay when it comes to everything we offer, as we know when it comes to satisfaction, lacking quality will not do much for anyone.

Here is a brief look at our 4 different electronic cigarette brands and how they appeal to different customers.

VaporFi: VaporFi is the brand for those who are looking for supreme quality and innovation. Their products for are designed for every type of smoker, from experts to novices. They offer a large selection of everything, including basic e-cigs to the most advanced vaporizers available. Standout features include the largest selection of e-liquids as well as top of the line, affordable mods.

South Beach Smoke: Great for beginners and experienced e-cigarette users who like advanced performance from a 2-piece e-cigarette with cartridge. This brand offers e-cigs and vaporizers, plenty of innovative accessories such as the PowerCig and the Personal Charging Case, plus the same extensive line of custom blended e-liquids as VaporFi.

EverSmoke: Based on the same technology as South Beach Smoke, EverSmoke offers similar e-cigarette products that appeal to smokers who want quality, options, and a great looking product.

NutriCigs: NutriCigs goes further into the realm of innovation, offering the first and only fortified, disposable e-cigarettes.

Diversity matters when it comes to selling electronic cigarettes. Being able to appeal to a small group will get some sales; offering products that are made for everyone cover all ground; and that is exactly what we aim to do!

Where can E-Cigarettes be Sold?

header-gift-shop1There are many places electronic cigarettes should be sold, for both the benefit of smokers and the benefit of retailers who can capitalize on the growing demand. If you have a retail store, or purchase the inventory for one, here are some of the best places for selling e-cigs. If you are interested in adding IVG brands and products to your store, please contact us to see if we can establish a relationship.

Pharmacies

This is an obvious one, as retail pharmacies are one of the top hits for traditional cigarettes. However, not only do these locations cater to current e-smokers, they are also great for catering to curious tobacco smokers. As these locations bring customers in the door for a large range of different products, having e-cigarettes will open up an additional channel of sales. Pharmacies are great for impulse purchases, and having e-cigarettes available can be a great option for those who want disposable e-cigarettes as well as products like Express Starter Kits such as those from EverSmoke and South Beach Smoke. These settings are excellent for bringing customers back for products such as refill cartridges and additional accessories, enabling you to offer products beyond the impulse buys.

Hotels

Hotels are often fiercely non-smoking zones, to the dismay of smokers who are looking to relax and enjoy themselves. Maintaining an air of accommodation, nonsmokers typically get first preference and smokers are left with few options. It is very common for smoking to be prohibited inside of hotel rooms, as well as in public areas, such as lounges and the pool, and it can make for a rather uncomfortable experience for smokers altogether. In an effort to cater to all guests, carrying e-cigarettes and making them available and acceptable for use is a viable option for hotels who want to please all guests without creating barriers. Selling e-cigarettes in hotel bars as well as in gift shops would add one more option for sales, and give smokers a solution that enables them to be comfortable and satisfied.

Gas Stations

Long one of the top spots for grabbing goods like cigarettes, beverages, candy and snacks on the go, gas stations are excellent venues for selling e-cigarettes successfully. The majority of gas stations do not offer a large selection of e-cigarettes, nor do they emphasize top quality, and that is one of the benefits of carrying IVG brands in your inventory; better than the competition, and more likely to drive customers back for repeat purchases knowing you have the better products.
