    I’ve noticed that my vape salts vary in colour quite often. Same flavour but one could be pale and another could be dark amber. Is this a quality control problem. Are they safe?

    Most all juice will darken over time as the nicotine oxidizes. As long as you bought authentic juice from a reputable seller, it should be fine.

    Salt nicotine starts out a light straw color. When it's blended with VG and exposed to the air (there's air in them pods), it can get very dark amber.

    Not to worry about unless like you get sick, or it starts tasting off. I would say that across the board with most nic, honestly and salts are no exception.

    Liquid nicotine darkens with age and exposure. No biggy.

    I have some oxidized salts that are yellow and smell peppery. It def tastes different and runs my flavors. I sent the manufacture a pic and they apologized and are sending me new nic. If it was okay I'm sure they would tell me color doesnt matter

    Also depends on the strength. 96mg nic will be darker than 48, which will be darker than 24. Simply because there is more nic.

    Likely just oxidation. If it's the same flavor, the darker one is probably just older or possibly stored in a warmer environment.

    These above two is what I found after researching and now with my own experience.

    I had a bottle of 20 mg and it was much lighter even after oxidizing compared to a 50 mg.
