NATURAL & BIODEGRADABLE DENTAL FLOSS
Why should I use dental floss?
We all know that brushing our teeth is integral for clean and healthy teeth but what about the areas of our mouth that a toothbrush can’t reach? Flossing enables us to reach those otherwise unreachable areas in our mouth, getting in to the crevices between gum and teeth where small pieces of food can become lodged. Plaque is formed from leftover food in combination with natural bacteria found in the mouth. Over time plaque hardens to tartar, which can only be removed with a visit to the dentist. To avoid unnecessary dental bills and to maintain a healthy mouth, flossing daily is recommended by the British Dental Association.
Why Silk Floss?
In 1815 a New Orleans dentist started suggesting flossing with waxed silken thread to his patients. Dr. Levi Spear Parmly went on to write a book encouraging everyone to brush their teeth twice a day and floss once a day. At the time the silken thread was easily available as a tailoring thread.
As demand grew for floss, companies started to mass produce silk thread exclusively as a dental floss.
During World War II the cost of silk skyrocketed and silk dental floss became too expensive to produce and sell. Around the same time Nylon started to replace silk stockings and before long dental floss was also made of nylon, a cheap plastic alternative to silk.
Fast forward to modern day and it is estimated that the amount of dental floss sold in the US each year could span the distance from the earth to the moon and back four times! Although nylon is cheap it is environmentally harmful being a petroleum based product that is not biodegradable. Silk floss is 100% natural and biodegradable.
Why Waxed Floss?
Waxed floss provides a softer more gentle experience as well as the added benefits from Georganics' wax coatings.
Our silk floss is coated with a blend of candelilla wax and cardamon (also known as cardamom) essential oil.
Candelilla wax is extracted from the wax coated leaves of the small candelilla shrub and is completely natural and food grade.
The soft texture of the candelilla wax is combined with the antibacterial properties of cardamom essential oil. Chewing on cardamon seeds was once an Ayurvedic tradition and more recent research has discovered that while cardamom removes the bad bacteria found in the mouth it leaves the good probiotic bacteria behind, essential for overall health. The cardamon essential oil adds a subtle minty taste to the floss.
Many waxed flosses are coated with Teflon or petrolemeum, both considered highly toxic. Georganics dental floss is 100 % safe and natural.

Although this floss looks quite thick it slides between your teeth very nicely and with less resistance than standard plastic floss.
Not only is this the only floss I have ever been able to successfully get along with, but I am very happy in the knowledge that I am not contributing to the micro plastics that are already abundant in our oceans and waterways.
Packaged in an attractive glass container with built in floss cutter on the metal cap.
It is a pleasure to come across a product that is truely plastic free in this day and age, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was even delivered in 100% recycleable paper packaging.
I can't rate this product highly enough 10/10
First impression: how can floss be 'cute'? I don't know, it just is. Look at it! I didn't actually read the dimensions and thought it was bigger but it's better that it isn't, superb for travel.
Usage: the thickness of the floss works in all of my teeth spaces. I have some crowding so the floss gets a bit snagged in those areas but that's to be expected.
The smell is pleasant.
Unlike conventional floss, this doesn't feel like it might guillotine my gums as I work it into tight gaps. I'm sure if you weren't careful it could cut, but the normal stuff makes me nervous.
Packaging: no plastic, just a cardboard box.
Summary: I will be buying more, and I'm actually flossing as much as I tell my dentist I do now. Because it feels nicer and I'm not chucking little plastic strings in the bin.
