Elf Bar is a disposable vaporizer (vape) brand that’s become one of the industry leaders. The brand claims to leverage their “user-driven philosophy” and “innovative R&D” to deliver high-quality products.

But what are the different flavors sold by Elf Bar? What ingredients are used to make these flavors? Are these ingredients or dangerous to inhale? And how do real users rank Elf Bar’s flavors in terms of taste and experience?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we document all of the flavors sold by Elf Bar. We’ll analyze medical studies to give our take on whether this flavored nicotine vaporizer is healthy or unhealthy.

We’ll also feature unsponsored user reviews of Elf Bar’s flavors.

What Flavors Does Elf Bar Have?

Elf Bar’s website is difficult to navigate in our opinion. There’s no clear list of all available flavors. Rather, the brand sells different vape models each with different flavors.

Here’s a breakdown of Elf Bar flavors from some of the brand’s best-selling products at the time of publishing this article:

BC1600

  • Sakura Grape
  • Strawberry Kiwi
  • Watermelon Ice
  • Pineapple Coconut
  • Green Apple 
  • Triple Mango
  • Blueberry Ice
  • Triple Melon
  • Triple Berry Ice
  • Energy
  • Kiwi Fruit Passion Guava
  • Blue Razz Ice

600V2

  • Lemon Lime
  • Watermelon BG
  • P&B Cloudd
  • Apple Watermelon
  • Banana Ice
  • Banana Mango
  • Blue Razz Lemonade
  • Blueberry kiwi
  • Blueberry Raspberry
  • Blueberry Sour Raspberry

These lists only represent a fraction of total flavors sold by Elf Bar. We hope that in the future, the brand makes it easier to search by flavor rather than by product, because it’s clear that consumers want this information.

But are Elf Bar flavors unhealthy? We’ll discuss that question in the next section of this article.

Are Elf Bar Flavors Bad For You?

Elf Bar e-liquid ingredients

The ingredients in Elf Bar’s e-liquid are shown above.

Nicotine is a stimulant derived from tobacco, and a 2017 medical review found that use of e-cigarettes containing nicotine caused inflammation, oxidative stress, and periodontal diseases among other negative health outcomes.

Propylene glycol was shown to damage cells in the airway in a clinical trial published in the Respiratory Research journal.

Natural and artificial flavors may have a synergistic effect with nicotine and further induce damage to human health. In particular, a 2016 medical review reported that flavors added to e-cigarette products may “induce inhalation toxicity.”

We find the flavoring ingredients to be especially concerning, given that these are broad descriptors and fail to identify the specific flavoring chemicals used.

Directly inhaling unknown chemicals seems like a very risky choice from a health perspective.

Overall, we consider Elf Bar’s flavors to be unhealthy, but we consider nearly every vape pen product that contains nicotine and flavors to be unhealthy, so our position is not unique to this brand.

A YouTube creator named Lucy Moon has a video detailing why it’s so easy to become hooked on Elf Bars:

We would certainly recommend that consumers speak with a doctor prior to using a product like Elf Bar.

But how do real users rate and rank Elf Bar’s flavors? We’ll feature some unsponsored user reviews in the next section.

Conclusion

Elf Bar comes in an incredibly diverse range of flavors, and flavors vary based on the vape model.

This vape brand uses several ingredients shown in clinical studies to be harmful to human health when inhaled. We consider Elf Bar flavors to be unhealthy, and would strongly advise speaking with a doctor prior to using this product.

Consumers seem to favor Elf Bar over other vape brands, especially over other disposable vape brands.

We hope that in the future, Elf Bar publishes all flavors in an easily accessible and searchable database on their website, because it seems like consumers search more by flavor than by product model (which is what the site currently filters by).
