What is IQOS?

IQOS is a tobacco heating system

Thanks to sophisticated electronics, IQOS heats specially designed heated tobacco units up to 350°C, without combustion, fire, ash, or smoke. This generates a flavorful nicotine-containing vapor, releasing the true taste of heated tobacco. The experience lasts about six minutes or 14 puffs, comparable to that of a cigarette. 

Since there is no burning, the levels of harmful chemicals are significantly reduced compared to cigarette smoke. Our studies on IQOS are progressing rapidly and indicate that it has the potential to present less risk of harm compared to continued smoking for adult smokers who switch to it completely instead of continuing to smoke. However, IQOS is not risk-free.

IQOS is already available in 43 markets around the world.
