DentalLace is the first plastic-free dental floss in a refillable glass jar. The floss itself is biodegradable (silk and candelilla wax) as is the small, translucent bag of the replacement spool. The glass jar has a metal screw lid with floss cutter. When the floss is used up, unscrew the lid and add the second spool.
The wax is vegan and not petroleum based, so much healthier than the waxes that are used on many other floss types.
What’s also good: With conventional dental floss you always have to buy an new storage container and floss cutter. With Dental Lace you only buy the container and cutter once and then simply refill this in the future. The refill pack includes two replacement spools and comes without the jar.
The cardboard box is chlorine free processed, post-consumer fiber and manufactured using wind energy. Printed with soy based inks.
It’s the goal of the maker of DentalLace to make the most eco friendly dental floss available.
