All your Questions Answered

How is silk dental floss made?

Silk dental floss is made from silk thread which is then coated in plant-based candelilla wax. The candelilla wax finish allows the silk thread to move easily between teeth. The resulting finished product has the same look and feel as plastic dental floss.

Did you know? Silk dental floss existed before plastic dental floss and was widely used throughout Europe and America before the advent of plastic.

Is silk dental floss compostable?

Yes. Silk dental floss is 100% backyard compostable. There is no need to run silk dental floss through a commerical composting system. Because the components are 100% natural, the silk dental floss will naturally decompose in any setting.

Is silk floss good for the environment?

The answer is a definitive yes. Silk dental floss is a 100% natural product that will completely return to the earth after you finish using it. In contrast plastic dental floss is non-biodegradable and can be found wherever plastic waste exists: oceans, landfills, beaches.

Is silk dental floss vegan?

No, silk dental floss is not vegan. Silk thread is a product of a silk worm (an insect) and is therefore considered to be an non-plant-based product.

    Doesn't Break!


    I switched to this after using plastic dental floss and was concerned that this wouldn’t be as strong. After using it for several months, I can say that it has never broken. definitely a quality product.
