Information about IQOS Products

Important information about IQOS products

IQOS offers a variety of quality, science-based smokeless products that are a much better choice than continuing to smoke cigarettes.
IQOS vision is that smokeless products will one day replace cigarettes completely.

Cigarette smoking causes serious illness and is addictive. Without a doubt, the best decision a smoker can make is to quit smoking and nicotine use altogether.

Minors should not use tobacco or nicotine in any form.
IQOS smokeless products are for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products.

We do not offer IQOS products to people who have never used tobacco or nicotine products or who have stopped using tobacco and nicotine products. Our smokeless products are not alternatives to quitting and are not intended as quitting aids.

IQOS products are not risk-free and compatible cartridges contain nicotine, which is addictive. However, switching to a smokeless product is a better choice than continuing to smoke in general.

IQOS supports our adult smoke free product users in their journey to complete conversion through education and counseling.

To experience the benefits of smokeless products, consumers must fully switch and quit smoking permanently.
