Heat-not-burn products use innovative technology to heat tobacco, rather than burning it. How do they work? While most cigarettes reach temperatures of 850°C, heated tobacco works by only heating the tobacco up to 350°C, which stops the tobacco from burning. When the specially designed tobacco sticks are heated up, they release a flavourful vapour containing nicotine that gives you an authentic tobacco experience - but with no smoke and no ash.
4 major advantages of heat not burn products like IQOS:
- 95% harm reduction: IQOS reduces the levels of harmful chemicals in the IQOS vapour, on average by more than 95% compared to cigarette smoke.
- No smoke: IQOS doesn’t produce smoke, only a vapour, which dissipates much more quickly than the smoke released by a cigarette.
- No ash: IQOS doesn’t produce ash, because the tobacco doesn’t burn.
- Less smell: IQOS doesn’t produce such a strong smell as smoking, so users and those nearby don’t have to worry about the lingering smell of tobacco on their hair, hands, clothes and furniture. So your friends, family and pets will be pleased too!
