Well basically, silica gels and desiccants function by absorbing moisture around the environment that its placed in in order to enhance freshness and keep your other items and products lasting longer.
This works as it eliminates moisture and humidity (water), which is a component that bacteria and microorganisms requires in order to survive. Therefore bacteria and microorganisms are greatly reduced as well, helping to preserve and maintain the state of your items. This is why you will see many products containing silica gels, from vitamin bottles, to dried dates, shoe boxes, container desiccants, and all sorts.
