Refillable Corn Starch Dental Floss - Mint

Rated 4.3 out of 5
3 Reviews

If you are anything like us, you may have several containers of floss lurking in the bathroom cabinets… collected after every trip to the dentist where you swear to yourself you will be better at remembering to floss in the future.

 

The bathroom cabinet is a place where it is very easy to build up a stash of plastics.. and floss is one of the worst culprits. Not only is the container made of the type of plastic that will end up in landfill taking years to biodegrade... but the actual strings of floss themselves are made of nylon.

As floss is so small and light, it often avoids landfill and ends up being washed into the oceans. Unfortunately floss is designed not to break, creating a nightmare situation when it wraps itself round marine life.

 

There are various materials that can be used to make eco-friendly floss. Including silk and PLA plastics. The former wasn’t an option for us as we wanted our floss to be vegan. Instead, we are using a bio plastic made from corn starch that can be composted. It is coated in natural candelilla wax and uses natural mint flavouring.

Our containers are made from glass and stainless steel and are intended to be reused.

 

Floss is a great way to take a small step into the world of plastic free - making this change makes a huge difference.

Great service

The service from Wild and Stone was excellent. The packaging of the product absolutely beautiful, however for me this floss snaps each time I use it. I have very close together teeth and for someone with wider gaps I imagine this product will be brilliant. I am so disappointed that I have had to revert back to Oral B floss but for me dental health is too important.

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for taking the time to write an honest review, I too have close together teeth and this also sometimes happens to me when I use our floss! I have found the knack is to go in gently at a slight angle and then when removing, do the same thing as mine tends to snap when I'm taking the floss out. It is a bit annoying but the floss works so well at actually cleaning I've decided it's worth the bit of extra care to save on all that plastic! Totally understand why you've reverted back though. Maybe try my tip and see if that works! Many thanks Sarah Wild and Stone Customer Services

Clean feeling and a bonus cute bottle to re-use

The natural fibres on this floss leaves a thorough clean feeling without too much effort. I'm used to tape floss which can be slippery but this one had good grip . I just LOVE the miniature bottle too and will be re-using this as a little travel bottle for earrings.

Hi Aoife, Yes, our floss is lovely to use and does grip well due to the natural fibres, no slippery nylon in this product! We too are loving the little bottles, either refill with our dental floss refills (coming soon) or store all your mini bits and bobs, we will be stealing your earring travel case idea for definite!

Refillable corn starch dental floss

Great dental floss. It’s strong! It didn’t snag or break when used. My 9 year old loved it too as it’s not very minty. I love the clear glass environmentally friendly container and easy to use and cut to size. Love that’s it’s eco friendly too!
