Discover the benefits of IQOS and heated tobacco.

Why adult smokers are switching from smoking to IQOS.

​ Cigarettes produces Tar. IQOS doesn't ​

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 testimonial
“When I started using it (IQOS), we did experiment with hanky. You exhale the smoke through hanky, cigarette smoke leaves dark yellow traces. IQOS does not leave any trace.”

Cigarettes produces high amounts of carbon monoxide. IQOS doesn't. ​

IQOS emits less harmful chemicals than cigarettes​.
Cigarettes burn tobacco, which produces high amounts of carbon monoxide. IQOS doesn’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.
