What’s in Boveda?

If you’re new to using Boveda, you might be surprised when you feel one for the first time. A brand-new Boveda is pliable. Because the pack feels “squishy” new customers sometimes wonder if it “melted” in transit. Not so.

Not everyone is willing to share their secret recipe, but sharing is caring. Inside Boveda you’ll find purified water, natural salts and odorless food grade thickener, commonly used in salad dressing. Yes, salad dressing.

Then it’s all sealed in a leakproof membrane. Hardening of the corners is normal.
