NEW & IMPROVED
This new natural PEACE SILK Dental Floss is Plastic Free, Vegan & Eco-Friendly
Our NEW and improved floss is made from Peace silk (Ahimsa silk) which is a non-violent, vegan extraction of silk from spun cocoons. Wild silk moths complete their cycle from silkworm to moth without harm and the silk is spun from the empty cocoons. Standard silk production involves moths dying for their silk cocoons, this does not happen with peace silk.
Our first dental floss was made from corn silk which was fibrous and sometimes too tight for teeth, our new and better version of Peace Silk is much smoother, stronger, silkier, gliding easily between teeth!
This 30m high quality, natural, nylon-free dental floss is coated with candelilla wax and flavoured with mint!
- Recyclable cardboard box packaging
- Glass bottle with aluminium lid
- Plastic & nylon free bio-product
- No artificial or toxic ingredients
Commercial Dental Floss
Conventional dental floss is nylon and like plastic, is derived from crude oil taking around 90 years to decompose. It is often treated with perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl chemical substances. This class of chemicals is used to repel liquids in a broad range of products, such as non-stick cookware, raincoats, and outdoor gear and much more. These chemicals are so pervasive that they’re present in our bloodstream. People with higher concentrations of these chemicals in their blood have increased health risks including cancer, liver disease, heart disease, and immune system suppression. Regular dental floss is also usually non eco-friendly waxed nylon in a plastic container.
