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 Charcoal Floss?
Brief history of floss- In 1815 a New Orleans dentist started suggesting flossing with waxed silken thread to his patients. In 1882, as demand grew for silk floss, companies started to mass produce it 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.
Georganics offer two dental floss options, both sustainable and biodegradable, silk or charcoal. Our charcoal comes from sustainable bamboo. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and can grow up to 3 feet in height in just 24 hours. With this speed of growth it is the only plant left matching human consumption and deforestation. Georganics charcoal dental floss is natural, safe and biodegradable.
Why Waxed Floss?
Waxed floss provides a softer more gentle experience as well as the added benefits from Georganics' wax coatings.
Georganics charcoal floss is coated with food grade beeswax and peppermint essential oil. Peppermint essential oil is extremely effective at killing anaerobic bacteria. This type of bacteria thrives in a low oxygen environment such as the mouth and can cause gum disease. Research suggests peppermint essential oil can be used to help cure gum disease and even tooth decay.
Many waxed flosses are coated with Teflon or petrolemeum, both considered highly toxic.
Georganics dental floss is 100 % safe and natural and has a fresh minty flavour making flossing a more enjoyable experience.

I have very sensitive gums, and many flosses are very uncomfortable or even painful. This floss is not. I also find it a lot easier to twine around my fingers/grip, and I have a lot less instances of the floss getting stuck as has happened with many nylon brands that I have tried before.
The floss comes in a neat little jar (so tiny and cute!), with a simple metal catch on top to cut the floss. The lid is easy to unscrew. It's been designed for easy refills - something I will certainly be doing, as I am very happy with this brand.
My husband and I have been reducing the amount of waste we produce. It's been a slow journey, and we've been replacing our day-to-day single use plastics with more 'biodegradable' alternatives. Floss has been one of those regular use items that we've been wanting to find a more natural alternative to. We're really happy with it.
