Sometimes jargon can get a little too much. So we’re here to clarify key terms and explain exactly what oral nicotine is, and how zoneX tobacco-free nicotine pouches falls into this category.
‘Oral nicotine’ is a term used to describe the myriad of products that allow nicotine consumption without the production of smoke or vapour. These products are designed so that nicotine is absorbed via the mouth, rather than the lungs.
Some oral products have traditionally been made from tobacco, coming in loose form or pouches, for example snus. ‘Modern oral products’ include whiter tobacco pouches, and now tobacco-free nicotine pouches where the tobacco is completely replaced with natural plant fibres and nicotine.
Oral products are particularly popular in Sweden, Norway and the USA, and tobacco-free nicotine pouches are now emerging into the UK market.
zoneX nicotine pouches can be referred to as oral nicotine, as well as modern oral products, as they allow nicotine to be absorbed through your gums.

Tobacco-free nicotine pouches provide a modern alternative to conventional cigarettes and nicotine products. Advantages include:
No smoke or vapour, meaning no need to go outside
There is no need to light anything, no use for batteries and no smoke or vapour produced. This means there is no requirement to go outside to enjoy a pouch, and you can feel comfortable using these products wherever you are, without having to be particularly mindful of those around you.
The minty fresh flavour
As they are placed in the mouth, most nicotine pouches are made with minty fresh flavouring. This means they not only taste pleasant, but will also leave you with a fresh tasting minty sensation in your mouth.
No lasting odour
Beyond your breath, the lack of smoke or vapour means there is no lasting odour.
Varying nicotine strengths are available
Available in two different nicotine strengths, you can select the zoneX variant that suits your specific needs.
They do not stain teeth or nails
As new oral nicotine products such as zoneX are tobacco-free, they do not lead to teeth and nail staining.
