Why do I feel small crystals or hard lumps inside my Boveda?

What you’re finding is totally normal. So breathe easy—your Boveda is still doing its thing.

Our signature formula is a saturated salt solution. Sometimes an excess of blended salts will mix with the water while we blend this solution then fill the inner membrane. As a result, occasionally crystals can form. These crystals will not impact the performance of Boveda’s 2-way humidity control. Your Boveda is still completely safe to use. However, if the crystals become too sharp and puncture the pouch, please reach out to us. We’ll make it right, at no cost to you.
