ABOUT BOVEDA

Boveda is the original creator of 2-way humidity control packets used to protect moisture-sensitive products like cigars, cannabis and wooden instruments. Boveda’s ready-to-use packets are made of a semipermeable membrane which contains a combination of all-natural salts and purified water. A simple product that effectively and consistently solves an everyday problem of moisture loss, as well as excess moisture. Becoming the global leader in any category doesn’t happen overnight. Becoming the global leader in a category that didn’t even exist is even harder. But that’s exactly what Boveda did and continues to do since 1997.

Boveda’s commitment to their clients involves producing tens of millions of 2-way humidity control packets getting shipped out each year to protect the finest cigars, regulate the environment of a favorite guitar and keep the terpenes in cannabis where they belong. That’s a lot to expect out of a humble brown packet, but Boveda has dedicated more than 20 years protecting people’s passions.

Boveda’s values reflect the foundations which held our company from it’s very beginnings and continue to support it as we grow our sales and develop our most valuable asset, our employees:

Company Description
About Boveda

Boveda Inc. is a privately held corporation based in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Founded in 1997, Boveda Inc. is the global leader in 2-way humidity control for a multitude of industries and applications. Our patented products allow companies and end-users to preserve moisture-sensitive products over extended periods of time with zero maintenance.

Market Applications

Boveda engineers multiple different relative humidity levels for various industries for use in intermediate moisture control, defined as a RH need between 0 and 100% RH. Boveda's patented 2-way humidity control is unique to the world in that it responds to ambient temperature and moisture by adding or removing humidity, as needed, to regulate the pre-determined RH% engineered into each Boveda. While some RH levels are used in multiple industries, others are industry-specific. Boveda is made of all-natural food-grade ingredients and can incorporate an oxygen scavenger when needed.

Boveda, in various sizes and RH levels, is used for applications in premium tobacco, musical instruments, food, nutraceuticals, electronics, medical devices, Major League Baseball and herbal medicine.

How Boveda Works

Boveda works on the scientific principle that certain salts mixed with water will naturally regulate humidity. Boveda's patents are on the methods invented to make this scientific principle portable and practical for the rigors of packaging applications. Boveda absorbs and emits only purified water vapor through its semipermeable membrane and does not damage material through direct contact.
