    The product consists of a tube that gently heats up sticks of tobacco instead of burning them, making what’s inhaled less harmful than conventional cigarette smoke. Philip Morris has made the device a key part of its plans for growth. The device is already sold in dozens of other countries with varying success, but it has triggered debate among U.S. health experts over whether IQOS would help or hurt overall public health.
    Lower aerosolization temperatures help to drive superior (i.e. lower) toxicant levels in aerosol testing. Bond Street’s compositions compare favorably with the heat-not-burn industry benchmark and sales leader, the IQOS? heatstick. Sample comparative data was provided in our press release of earlier this year.”

    “As a tobacco product, Bond Street’s Tobacco Wax compositions are not subject to the 2% nicotine cap of the European Union’s Tobacco Product Directive. Thus, Bond Street’s products can provide a competitive nicotine delivery appealing to adult smokers, akin to other products in the heat-not-burn category and unlike conventional European vapor products.”
