Is it legal to sell your own e juice?
I assume that you mean selling DIY juice on a small scale? (as it is clearly 'legal' to sell e-liquid in general. S.A. might be subject to more regulations soon, but not as yet. There's also no obligatory certification / standards required, but most juice manufacturers choose to impose high health and quality standards upon themselves; and are often asked on this forum what their mixing process regarding ingredients, labs, clean rooms etc. are). It is legal to sell your own DIY mixes on a small scale (obviously when you do business at a certain turnover - registration, taxation etc becomes involved), but the onus would be on you (not so much legally, but simply in terms of prudence and responsibility) to make sure that your ingredients (such as nicotine) are top quality, that your juices are mixed at the proper hygienic standards and accuracy of ingredients, that you disclose whether your concentrates contain diacetyl / diketones etc. to those who prefer to avoid those, that you disclose whether your concentrates contain trace amounts of alcohol to those who avoid that for religious reasons etc.
Nowadays, many recipes available are also released with legal disclaimers that they are not to be used for any commercial purposes; whilst some of the more 'famous' recipe creators don't mind if you mix some of their recipes for selling on a very limited scale. Personally I think that it's poor form to simply sell somebody elses recipe that you have mixed at a huge markup, and for me any sort of markup would only be justified if I sell my own 'masterpiece' (I do sell a bottle or three of DIY juice - my own recipes - here and there to those friends / acquaintances in desperate need of juice, but personally I only charge for my cost and very minimally for my time - rounded off to the next R 10 or so)
Thank you very much.
It is extremely helpfull.
@Lingogrey "It is legal to sell your own DIY mixes on a small scale ...". What then is the situation if you mix by volume?
In that case, the customers have you over a barrel.
Might be jumping the gun but I do wanna sell my own mix at stores only for a side job. Only one mix. I do somehow believe that registration for tax or some type of registration is needed if one starts printing labels and selling...
I mean the stores one buys e-juice from probably pays tax, no? #INeedHelp
