Hand Sanitiser in Vape Bottles? This Needs to Stop. Now. No ratings yet.

, ,

The vape industry has been built on
entrepreneurship and the ability to move rapidly in response to changing
circumstances.

Today we have seen that
some vape companies have sought to expand into producing hand sanitiser in the
wake of the rapidly-escalating COVID-19 outbreak.

It has just been
announced that there have been a further 134 people testing positive for
COVID-19 in the last 24 hours and as this blog post is being written an
emergency COBRA meeting chaired by Prime Minister Boris Johnson is underway.

We have no problem with
e-liquid companies using their clean rooms to produce these much-needed hygiene
products – especially at a time when pharmacies and supermarkets are running
out of supplies across the country.

However we have seen
images of products containing 70 percent alcohol hand sanitiser being packaged
in short-fill style bottles, and the fear is that they could all too easily be
mistaken for e-liquid.

Hand sanitiser is
clearly not safe to vape so any company making such products should be very
careful that their products are not confused with a vapour product.

The whole ethos of our
industry is one of harm-reduction so we must do all in our power to ensure that
the public could not confuse a bottle of hand sanitiser for a regular vaping
product.

Also remember that
vapers could easily have a bottle of e-liquid and a bottle of hand sanitiser in
their bag or pocket at the same time.

Surely they should both
look sufficiently different to avoid confusion?
