When it comes to science and research, we set ourselves high standards, and our scientific methods are inspired by the pharmaceutical industry. We share our scientific findings publicly and encourage others to review our work. Our vision is to offer current adult smokers a better choice than continued smoking. How are we making this vision a reality? By developing a portfolio of smoke-free products that deliver nicotine without burning tobacco and which current adult smokers find satisfying.

Discovering better alternatives to smoking through science
The scientists at Philip Morris International are developing smoke-free products that are designed to provide nicotine without combustion. To date, more than 10 million adult smokers have switched to one of our smoke-free products. These new products are only intended for adult smokers and not for those who have never smoked or are former smokers.
