Together with British American Tobacco and QIMA Life Sciences (Synelvia SAS), we conducted a pilot study to investigate the impact of aerosols produced by smoking and vapor products (conventional cigarettes, electronic cigarettes) on the skin. The results of this study have been published in the Skin Research & Technology Journal.


Long-term use of cigarettes can result in localised staining and aging of smokers’ skin. The use of tobacco heating products (THPs) and electronic cigarettes (ECs) has grown on a global scale; however, the long-term effect of these products’ aerosols on consumers’ skin is unknown. This pilot clinical study aimed to determine whether THP or EC aerosol exposure results in skin staining or activation of biomarkers associated with oxidative stress.
