Why choose IQOS

Discover the reasons why millions of adult smokers around the world have switched to IQOS*.


*Source: 3-month clinical studies conducted in US and Japan with 160 adult smokers, each under real conditions (ambulatory).


IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it to deliver the taste of real tobacco without smoke.

Studies1 show that the satisfaction of those who switch completely to IQOS is comparable to those who continue to smoke cigarettes.

Since IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it, it doesn’t produce fire, ash or smoke.

With IQOS you enjoy a cleaner experience every time.


IQOS emits on average 95% less harmful chemicals compared to cigarettes2.

This makes IQOS a better choice compared to continued smoking.

Source2:”95% less” represents the average reductions in levels of a range of harmful chemicals (excluding nicotine) compared to the smoke of a reference cigarette (3R4F). 

Important information: It does not necessarily equal a 95% reduction in risk. IQOS is not risk-free. It delivers nicotine which is addictive. ​

Better just got better.
