In the past 12 months, Elf Bar disposable vapes have taken the vape industry by storm. Elf Bars are available in practically every flavour you can think of and designed as a lightweight, modern-looking and less-harmful alternative to traditional cigarettes.
There are many different types of Elf Bars, including the Elf Bar 600 and Elf CR500. Popular flavours include Cola, Blue Razz Lemonade, Watermelon and Berry Peach.
What are Elf Bar advent calendars?
Many videos and images have circulated the UK of Elf Bar advent calendars during December 2021; this has led to a surge in demand for Elf Bar vape advent calendars in early 2022.
Like with typical advent calendars, instead of chocolate, gift or another surprise, the Elf Bar advent calendar reveals a new Elf Bar disposable for each day leading up to Christmas.
Where can I buy an Elf Bar advent calendar?
Our investigation shows that Elf Bar advent calendars have been sent to social media influencers for marketing purposes. The calendars are not available to be purchased by the general public.
Some of the calenders we came across contain "Elf Bar 2000" vapes inside and other non-UK compliant goods. As such, it would be illegal to sell these advent calenders in the UK due to the e-liquid capacity being greater than 2ml at (20mg).
However, a loophole in the law allows company-to-company sales (also known as 'trade sales') to be out of the scope of the current regulations appearing to allow for social media infuencers to receive promotional business items.
Why are the advent calenders illegal?
The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) is the competent authority for E-cigarettes in the UK and is responsible for implementing the rules and regulations under the TRPR (Tobacco and Related Products Regulations).
The MHRA has explained that UK law permits e-cigarettes to have a maximum e-liquid capacity of 2ml with a maximum nicotine strength of 20mg/ml. However, as some of the Elf Bars present in the Elf Bar advent calendar have an e-liquid capacity of greater than 2ml, they cannot be sold legally in the UK. Therefore, these Elf Bars lack the safety testing that all legal Elf Bars must obtain before UK sale to the general public.
