Before Boveda, it was difficult, if not impossible to control humidity for moisture-sensitive products like cigars, cannabis, and wooden instruments. So Boveda invented that control. Boveda started with a frustrated cigar lover whose job was to keep his cigars properly humidified. That job was labor-intensive and it didn't always work. It was the '90s and he was limited to distilled water and sponges, distilled water and shot glasses, or foam and chemicals. (Some people still use those one-way humidifying methods. We don't know why. But that's another story.)
The difficulty of accomplishing this task led to the creation of Boveda (then Humidipak) which is a two-way humidity control in a ready-to-use packet. Boveda's semipermeable membrane contains all-natural salts and purified water to keep moisture-sensitive products safe. Since 1997, we have been the global leader in two-way humidity control.
