All our plastic silica gel packets (except the 100 gram) are porous, what this means is that they contain micro holes in them, therefore they are ready to be used once they are opened from our main bag seal. So, no pricking required - hassle free!
Our distribution centers are cleaning surfaces according to CDC guidelines and all workers are implementing “social distancing” practices to be extra safe. Everyone who can, is working from home. If you’re concerned about the safety of receiving a box in your home, the World Health Organization has more info on the topic here.
