How to Maintain Your Nicotine Pouch

26. april 2023

Nicotine pouches are a low-tech, smoke-free* alternative to smoking and vaping, providing nicotine without tobacco. Nicotine in a VELO pouch? Weird. Instant enjoyment? Wonderful.

Whether you want a smokeless* nicotine product on the go or are trying to remove tobacco from your routine, nicotine pouches are best enjoyed fresh. Learn how to keep VELO pouches in top condition here.


How long do nicotine pouches last?

When stored properly, nicotine pouches can have a relatively long shelf life. VELO pouches last around a year from when they’re made to when they expire. All our products have manufacture dates clearly labelled, so you never need to compromise on your VELO experience.

How you store your VELO pouches matters! We recommend keeping them in their original container, dry and cool, to ensure the quality lasts.

Wondering how long nicotine pouches last in your mouth? VELO pouches release nicotine and flavour for up to 30 minutes. After this time, pop it out of your mouth and bin it.


How do you keep VELO pouches fresh once opened?

Knowing how to store your VELO pouches means keeping them fresher for longer. Exposing your pouches to high temperatures or damp conditions can compromise their quality. So, how do you keep nicotine pouches fresh?


Keep nicotine pouches away from heat and damp

Store VELO pouches away from direct sunlight, heat and moist conditions. Heat and high temperatures can affect the nicotine, flavours and moisture levels inside the pouches, which should be maintained for the best VELO experience.


Store pouches in their original packaging

VELO containers are perfect for storing nicotine pouches – we designed them that way! Keep your unused pouches safely stored in their original packaging, taking out one at a time when you want to use one. Make sure the lid is tightly fastened after each use.


Consider the fridge to prolong freshness

Wondering where to store your VELO pouches at home? The fridge is a perfect spot, keeping them cool and shaded, whatever the weather.


Remove from your mouth after 30 minutes

VELO pouches stop delivering nicotine and flavour after 30 minutes. We recommend removing them from your mouth and binning them when half an hour has passed.


Can you reuse nicotine pouches?

No, reusing VELO pouches isn’t recommended. Nicotine pouches lose most of their flavour and nicotine after 30 minutes. After this time, take it out and bin it.
