There has been much news recently around the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) release of its final deeming regulations of vapor products.
The FDA Vaping Regulations' new rules are designed to ensure proper manufacturing and marketing of vapor products. At Mistic, we've always supported sensible, science-based regulations of vapor products, including product standards, labeling requirements, bans on underage use, and child-resistant packaging.
our team takes great pride in the fact that as an American company, not only are we creating jobs, but all of our e-liquids and the filling of our cartridges are developed in the U.S. in an ISO 8 class 100,000 clean room facility

As one of the largest independent vapor companies, our team takes great pride in the fact that as an American company, not only are we creating jobs, but all of our e-liquids and the filling of our cartridges are developed in the U.S. in an ISO 8 class 100,000 clean room facility.
However, it is vital that vapor product innovation is not unduly stifled by the approval process, such as a costly pre-market tobacco product application (PMTA). That’s why we have joined the Vapor Technology Association, reaffirming our commitment to the vapor industry and the customers we serve. Together we will use our resources to press for reasonable and fair regulations that will allow for continued modernization, and push for passage of the Cole-Bishop Amendment, legislation that offers a more viable substantial equivalency pathway to market.
Vapor products offer a significant alternative for adult smokers, which is corroborated by top researchers in the field of tobacco harm reduction, including the U.K.’s Royal College of Physicians, one of the world’s leading medical institutions, which recently endorsed vaping as a replacement tool for smoking.
It is essential that these devices remain on the market, offering a sustainable solution for adult vapers and the more than 40 million current U.S. adult smokers. Mistic E Cigs is dedicated to this industry, and we will continue to offer our customers and vapers everywhere a wide variety of high-quality products that provide great value, exceptional taste and a brand promise of trust that is unparalleled in the category.
