Boveda is The Only Precise Humidity Control

Two-way Humidity Control means the same thing to us today as it did when we patented the packaged version in 1997: The ability to add and/or remove moisture and still maintain a specific Relative Humidity (RH). It means acting on the environment instead of being at the mercy of it. It means specificity, reliability, and predictability. 

As you look for the best humidity solution for your humidor, cannabis container, or musical instrument case, don’t be fooled by gels, beads, or other humidifier packs. Those items aren’t precise like Boveda. The term 2-way humidity “control” (or regulate) is often misused to describe any product that crudely releases or absorbs moisture into a container, whether the contents inside need humification or not.

Why Starting at the Right Number Isn’t Good Enough

Think of your remote control. Imagine you’d select Channel 62 but within 15 minutes, the TV jumps to Channel 80? Or you set your thermostat to 72 degrees in the summer but the furnace fires up. These analogies are what you get from non-Boveda 2-way humidity “control”. “Good enough” is satisfactory for some people. But not for us. And not for your valuable cigars, guitars, or cannabis

Boveda Science

What Makes Boveda Precise?

What’s the not-so-secret ingredient that Boveda uses to help you maintain precise humidity?

Salt. Science has known for hundreds of years that a saturated salt solution is the only way to provide the capacity to add and/or remove moisture and still maintain the specific intended RH. Boveda patented the packaged version of that science. Without salt, any humidity “control” only has a starting RH that changes wildly as soon as it gives up or absorbs water. That’s not specific, reliable or predictable. 

Boveda’s natural, food-grade salts are the brains that know when to absorb and when to release purified water vapor. It’s why you’ll find Boveda in the cigar boxes of leading cigar makers, the packaging of the biggest cannabis brands, and the cases of musical instrument manufacturers. Boveda means precision.

No salt = No Precise 2-Way Humidity Control
