Nicotine in VELO nicotine pouches
Wondering how VELO nicotine pouches are made? VELO nicotine pouches are made in our factories in Europe**. These tobacco-free nicotine products are made from pharmaceutical-grade nicotine, plant-based materials, flavourings and sweeteners.
Nicotine pouches come in different strengths.
Now that you understand the nicotine in VELO nicotine pouches, you might wonder how we create the various available strengths. How are nicotine strengths different?
In VELO nicotine pouches, a lower strength means less pharmaceutical-grade nicotine. Higher-strength options, like our 17mg nicotine pouches, contain more nicotine than 6mg, 10mg or 14mg, for example.
How does the VELO nicotine strength dot system work?
We use a handy dot system to indicate nicotine strength. The lower the number of dots on the packaging, the lower the amount of nicotine in the pouch.
VELO nicotine pouches
Nicotine consumers can shop for VELO nicotine pouches in various strengths and flavours, including mint and fruit. For a more compact can and smaller pouch size, explore VELO MINI nicotine pouches; these may be suitable if regular-sized pouches don’t tuck comfortably underneath your lip. For more experienced nicotine consumers, VELO Ultra and Max-strength pouches may be the preferred choice.
