Discover the benefits of IQOS and heated tobacco
Why adult smokers are switching from smoking to IQOS.
Cigarettes produce tar, IQOS doesn't
"Tar" is the residue from smoke after a cigarette has burned. IQOS does not produce tar because it heats tobacco instead of burning it. It generates an aerosol residue that is fundamentally different from "Tar" and consists of significantly lower levels of harmful chemicals.* Switching completely to IQOS is less harmful than continuing to smoke.**
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Although IQOS does not produce tar, IQOS is not risk free, and delivers nicotine which is addictive.
*Average reductions in the levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to cigarette smoke.
** Source: Based on the totality of evidence available for IQOS in comparison with continuing to smoke.
IQOS doesn't burn tobacco
IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it, so it doesn't produce fire, ash or smoke. This makes IQOS a better choice compared to continued smoking.
Important information: IQOS is not risk free, it delivers nicotine which is addictive.
IQOS emits less harmful chemicals than cigarettes
Cigarettes burn tobacco, which produces high amounts of carbon monoxide. IQOS doesnâ€™t burn tobacco, producing on average 98% less carbon monoxide (CO) and significantly lower levels of other harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes.*
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This does not mean a 98% reduction in risk. IQOS is not risk-free, and delivers nicotine which is addictive.
*Source: We measured the levels of certain harmful chemicals prioritised for reporting by renowned public health organisations, and these are reduced on average by 95% compared to the smoke of a cigarette (nicotine excluded).
IQOS vs cigarette comparison
In the IQOS vs. cigarettes comparison, watch as adult smokers see the difference between three puffs of cigarettes smoke and three puffs of IQOS tobacco vapour and see their reactions. Just one of the many reasons to stop burning and start heating with IQOS.Watch Video
