What can you expect after switching to IQOS?

How does switching to IQOS affect your health?

The vapour generated from an IQOS emits 95% less harmful chemicals than the smoke from cigarettes*. IQOS is however not risk free. It contains nicotine and is addictive.  The levels of emissions of harmful and potentially harmful chemicals is significantly lower in IQOS than in cigarette smoke.

Unlike cigarettes, IQOS heats and does not burn tobacco and can potentially reduce the risk of smoking-related diseases compared to continued smoking, making it a better choice for adult smokers than continuing to use cigarettes.

Earlier this year the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed that IQOS is appropriate for the protection of public health and authorised the device and HEETS tobacco sticks for sale in that country.

How does switching to IQOS affect your breath compared to cigarettes?

Smokers’ breath is one of the complaints that smokers have of smoking cigarettes. Smokers who switch to IQOS say that there is less unpleasant feeling and aftertaste left in their mouth compared to after finishing smoking a cigarette.

Switch to IQOS to get rid of the smell of cigarettes

The smell of cigarettes lingers on your person, in your hair, on your hands, in your car and even in the fabric of your sofa long after you’ve taken the last puff of your cigarette, which just adds to the habit’s reputation as a social killjoy. IQOS by comparison is a technologically sophisticated heat-not-burn alternative to smoking cigarettes that emits no smoke. Instead, a nicotine-infused vapour that completely evaporates in a matter of seconds is inhaled by the user and leaves less smell on hands, hair and clothes than cigarettes. 

Say goodbye to cigarette ash with IQOS

Cigarette ash is one of the most irritating by-products of smoking cigarettes. Not only does it smell bad, it creates the need for a great deal of clean up. Fine particles find their way into carpets and onto floors and hot ashes can burn holes in clothing and upholstery. Ash is produced because cigarettes burn at temperatures in excess of 600 degrees centigrade generating smoke and ash when combustion takes place. IQOS, on the other hand, heats tobacco, releasing the true taste of heated tobacco, and does not burn it at all so no smoke or ash is produced in the process.

Important information: It does not necessarily equal a 95% reduction in risk.
IQOS is not risk-free.

*Average reduction in levels of a broad range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to the smoke of a reference cigarette (3R4F).
