IQOS uses sophisticated electronics to heat specially prepared and blended tobacco. IQOS heats the tobacco just enough to release a flavourful nicotine-containing vapour but without burning the tobacco.
The biggest difference between IQOS and cigarettes is that IQOS heats tobacco instead of burning it, therefore eliminating many of the chemicals and toxins associated with smoking-related diseases. Because the tobacco sticks used with IQOS are made from real tobacco, the user still experiences the taste of tobacco but there is no fire, ash or smoke generated. Instead, a vapour is emitted that has less smell than smoke from a cigarette.
When a cigarette is used, nicotine is released through burning the tobacco which creates smoke, but IQOS has a specially designed blade that heats the tobacco rather than burning it, still allowing for the nicotine to be released.
The gold platinum blade in the IQOS holder is what controls the temperature of the tobacco ensuring it is never hot enough to burn or combust. The tobacco sticks have been specially designed to be used exclusively with IQOS, and while they are made from real tobacco, they cannot be smoked like cigarettes. This is because the tobacco in our tobacco sticks has been processed differently to the tobacco in cigarettes. Click here for more information on our heat-not-burn technology.
No, because IQOS doesn’t burn tobacco, it doesn’t generate smoke.
No. IQOS heats tobacco to release a vapour containing nicotine unlike e-cigarettes that vapourise a liquid containing nicotine.
Tobacco sticks consist of three parts. The first component is high-quality compressed tobacco surrounded in aluminium foil. The second component is a hollow cylinder that channels the vapour flow. The third component of the tobacco stick is the biodegradable polymer filter. The polymer is made of corn starch and is especially designed for use in the tobacco sticks, and cools the tobacco vapour to a suitable temperature.
