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

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

See, our signature formula consists of a saturated salt solution which means sometimes an excess of blended salts will mix with water during the blending and filling process.

Crystals can form as a result on the rare occasion, but it won’t impact your Boveda’s 2-way humidity control performance and is still completely safe to use. However, if the crystals become too sharp and puncture the pouch, definitely reach out to us and we’ll make it right at no cost.
