Tobacco heating products

Our commitment to offering adult smokers a choice of potentially reduced-risk products is reflected in the progress we are making in tobacco heating products.

What are tobacco heating products?

Tobacco heating products (THPs) are devices that heat tobacco to generate a nicotine-containing aerosol with a tobacco taste which the user inhales.

Because the tobacco is only heated and not burned, the resulting aerosol can potentially contain substantially lower levels of the toxicants found in the smoke produced when tobacco is burned.

This provides one indication that THPs have potential reduced-risk properties compared with conventional cigarettes.
