Dental Lace is a fantastic alternative for dental floss, being made and contained with nearly all sustainable materials. It was created by Jodi Breau, from Cape Elizabeth, Maine (USA) who was determined to help reduce place in the form of an eco friendly dental floss.
The original Dental Lace floss is made from 100% Mulberry silk, which is coated in candelilla wax – a plant based wax – and has a natural mint flavour. The floss is contained in refillable glass canisters which feature 4 different colour designs – pink, grey, blue and green – with a stainless steel dispenser.
The Dental Lace comes with 2 spools with 30 metres of floss – one inside the canister as well as one refill. The Refill is contained in a polylactide acids bag, which is a plant based plastic and is compostable. The packaging box the floss comes in is recycled cardboard with printing done is soy based inks.
The only waste this floss has is the waterproof label on the outside of the glass, which helps to protect the canister – this stays on and the container can be refilled with Refill packs available.
Dental Lace has also released a ‘Vegan’ floss, where the floss is made from a blend of charcoal bamboo fibre and PET (polyester). So whilst its not compostable, it still comes in the refillable glass canister. Dental Lace is continuing to source a plastic free vegan option.
