UK retailers will soon be able to offer adult smokers a new alternative to tobacco.

Swedish manufacturer Nicoccino is launching a leaf-thin natural film which is placed under the upper lip and onto the gum where it slowly delivers nicotine to the user without tobacco and tar. Each film contains 1mg of pure nicotine, equivalent to one regular strength cigarette.

Nicoccino is priced at £4.99 for one pack of 10 films or £39.99 for a pack of 90 films.

The company will be sending field sales agents into stores in January.
