E-liquid is a fluid used in e-cigarettes.

  • It is heated into an aerosol (not just a vapor) that users breathe in.
  • E-liquid comes in thousands of flavors.1
  • Many of the flavors appeal to kids, like bubble gum and grape.

What’s in E-liquid?

E-liquid often has:

  • Nicotine
  • Propylene glycol, often used in food and meds
  • Vegetable glycerin, often used in food and make-up
  • Flavorings
  • Water

E-liquid can also contain other substances, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

Since vapes are currently sold without much regulation, e-liquid can be contaminated with unknown substances. There have been reports of illness and even deaths among people who use vapes.

E-liquid Risks

  • Sweet flavors may tempt kids to drink from e-liquid bottles or put e-cigarettes in their mouth.
  • If kids swallow e-liquid or get it on their skin, they may feel sick and throw up.
  • As of August 31, 2019, poison control centers have managed 2,961 exposure cases about e-cigarette devices and liquid nicotine in 2019.3
  • Some kids have gone to the ER after getting sick from e-liquid.


  • By law, e-liquid bottles need to be childproof, but they should still be kept away from kids.4
  • Always keep e-cigarettes and e-liquid locked up or out of reach from kids.
  • Put empty bottles in a plastic bag or jar. Mix in things like dirt, cat litter, or coffee grounds.
  • If a child swallows e-liquid or gets it on their skin, call poison control at 1-800-222-1222.
