Are Hookah Pens Safe?
“How safe are hookah pens?”
This is the biggest question people ask when considering purchasing from our store.
So, are hookah pens safe? The hookah pens we carry are extremely safe. There are two ingredients: Propylene Glycol and Glycerine. We explain more about the ingredients below, but a quick search shows that those two ingredients are found in everyday foods such as soda and salad dressings.
Propylene Glycol is a clear, odorless liquid with a slightly sweet flavor to it. It is made by combining Propylene Oxide with water. While it has a wide range of applications, it is mainly used to keep foods moist and acts as a “binder” of sorts. It has been safely used for over 50 years in health-conscious fields. The human system rapidly converts this chemical into Lactic Acid, a necessary component to the body. Some common applications, to name a few, include:

Glycerine, on the other hand, is a sugar alcohol compound. Like Propylene Glycol, it is a colorless and odorless liquid that has a sweet taste to it. Glycerine serves as a food preservative, solvent and sweetener in the food industry. In fact, it is found in nearly all low-fat foods!
Fun fact: Glycerine has 27 calories per teaspoon, while sugar has 20. However, Glycerine is only about 60% as sweet as sugar is.
Some common applications for Glycerine include:
