Flavored Vapes Crucial for Adult Smokers' Transition, Says Relx
Relx International emphasizes the importance of flavored vapes in supporting adult smokers' switch from cigarettes, as the UK government introduces a 'swap to stop' scheme.

Relx International has underscored the significance of flavored vapes in helping adult smokers quit cigarettes and transition to less harmful alternatives. This follows the UK government's announcement of a free vaping starter pack initiative for a million smokers, called the 'swap to stop' scheme.


E-cigarettes, which allow users to inhale vapor instead of smoke, are endorsed by the NHS as an effective aid for adult smokers attempting to quit. The UK government has also allocated £3 million to create an 'illicit vapes enforcement squad,' led by Trading Standards, to address the illegal sale of e-cigarettes to under-18s.


Relx International's External Affairs Manager Europe, Chris Aikens, supports the 'swap to stop' scheme and the crackdown on the sale of banned vapes and underage sales. However, he warns that banning specific flavors could deter adult users from transitioning to vaping. Aikens maintains that providing adult smokers with adequate support and information, including the benefits of flavored vapes, is crucial for a successful transition, reports Talking Retail (talkingretail.com).


A recent independent report by King's College London, commissioned by the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, revealed that vaping is significantly less harmful than smoking. The study concluded that adult users switching from cigarettes to alternative next-gen products would experience a considerable reduction in their exposure to toxic substances.


Relx International is committed to ensuring its products are not designed, marketed, or sold to underage users, avoiding marketing tactics that might appeal to young people. Aikens emphasizes the importance of compliance and going above and beyond in youth prevention efforts, encouraging retailers to implement stricter measures to prevent the sale of vape products to minors.
