No more cleaning those pearly whites with petroleum! Our dental floss is made from fiber and is lightly coated with candelilla wax for slide.
You can smile each time you use it knowing you’re no longer using traditional plastic floss containers and saving marine life with this biodegradable alternative. Simply save your reusable glass container and refill it with the floss (shipped in a compostable paper bag!) in your next box.
Corn floss is best for those with wider teeth.
*Does not contain polyester.
Bamboo floss is best for those with tight teeth.
*Unfortunately this does contain polyester, which means it is not compostable and must be thrown in the garbage after use.
This is a temporary fix until we're able to find a long term solution that is both compostable and works for people with tighter teeth.

Nylon dental floss.
Traditional dental floss is usually made from either nylon (petroleum), teflon (the chemical mouthful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)), or synthetic wax (petroleum).
These toxins can be absorbed into your bloodstream during those times that you floss a little too hard, or it’s been, say, longer than the suggested three times a day since your last floss.
Discarded dental floss cannot be recycled, takes 30-80 years to break down, and can be harmful to wildlife.
Corn: Corn Fiber, Candellila Wax (from the Candellila shrub), Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha Piperita)
