What Makes Boveda Different?

All humidification products are not created equal, and we know it’s difficult to cut through all of the misinformation out there. Boveda is different from the rest because it covers all of your bases. Need more humidity? Less? Are you just lazy and don’t want to refill or activate anything? Or maybe you want to use what the pros are using. No matter your humidity needs, Boveda can help. Below are some simple points which we believe will help consumers (and retailers) understand the important differences between the various types of humidification on the market.
