Cigorange humidifier beads© (silica gel cigar beads)
Why pay more for lesser quality and potentially dangerous beads ?
Cigorange humidifier beads© are made with pure amorphous silica and a safe activating coloring agent that turns from orange to dark green as the humidity level rises. No more guessing the humidity level of your humidor or when to add distilled water. Just by looking at your Cigorange beads you will know when to add water: when they start returning to orange, it's time to add water.
Lesser quality blue activating coloring beads contain cobalt chloride, which has recently been discovered to possibly cause cancer by inhalation. Why risk your health with anything but Cigorange humidifier beads© ?
