No more cleaning those pearly whites with petroleum!

This floss will leave you feeling like you’ve just come back from the dentist.

Our dental floss is made from corn 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 stylish glass container and top it up with a refill (shipped in a compostable paper bag!) in your next order.

*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.
Quantity: 30 m

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.

Floss refills replace the need for plastic dental floss containers and allow you to refill and reuse instead.

Corn Floss:

Corn Fiber, Candelilla Wax (from the Candelilla shrub/de l’arbuste Candelilla), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint Essential Oil/Huile Essentielle de Menthe Poivrée)

Bamboo Floss:

Bamboo Fiber, Polyester, Candelilla Wax (from the Candelilla shrub/de l’arbuste Candelilla), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint Essential Oil/Huile Essentielle de Menthe Poivrée)

  1. Pull out about 18 inches of floss, cut on the lid of the container.
  2. Wind the floss around your fingers (no need to get all tangled!).
  3. Slide floss gently up and down between your teeth.
  4. *Take care around your gum line.
  5. At the gum line, curve floss into a C-shape against your tooth and gently slide into the space between the gum and your tooth.
  6. Repeat for each tooth.
  7. Cheese to check out those pearly whites.

*Keep your container for future refills.

Your floss will be shipped in a compostable paper bag that can be thrown into your compost bin.

Typical Life Span: 2 months*

Corn: After using your corn floss, simply toss it into your compost bin.

Bamboo: After using your bamboo floss, simply toss it into your garbage bin.

*Life span will vary based on frequency of use, storage conditions, etc.

Love the bamboo floss

I originally bought the corn floss, but it didn’t work as well as I was hoping for me. When I reached out to Erin, they were more than accommodating to have me try the bamboo alternative and I love it! It gets in between all my teeth easily. Thanks Erin & life UNpacked for doing what you do!

Hey Bridget - This is great to hear that the bamboo worked well for you. We are sorry to hear about the corn floss option. It is something that we are working on to find a completely compostable option that is as strong as you need!

Refills in compostable bag :)

This Bamboo Floss was fantastic! I tend to not floss as I forget and I have trouble getting my hand in my mouth to maneuver the floss. It also often breaks and gets stuck. This Bamboo Floss did neither. It did not break or get stuck making it more simple to floss. It is perfect for those with tighter areas between their teeth.

loooooove it!

I use the dental floss and looooove it. So much better than other floss. Not only is it silk and environmentally friendly but I find it works much better for my teeth and doesn't break or fray. Also, one roll has lasted FOREVER. It's really excellent stuff. I highly recommend it.

We love the floss options too. We unfortunately don't supply the silk option anymore, but we do have vegan-friendly corn or bamboo options :)
