Eliquid Testing

As a part of ECTA, Lifestyle Cig recognizes the need for standards and appropriate testing for E-Liquid. Our eliquids are submitted twice a year for testing with a laboratory compliant with Health Canada testing methods. Our eliquids are tested for the following components/elements:
