Flosspot™ is a mini mason jar filled with luxurious silk dental floss, lightly waxed for strength and ease of use between tight teeth, lab tested for purity. It is not flavoured because flavouring changes the lab results, which we do not want. It is fully compostable.
Flosspot™ has been several years in the making. We wanted to get it right the first time by launching with the complete lab-tested authentication for purity and transparency for our customers, and we welcome any and all feedback. Plastic under the gum line (especially when coated in teflon) either with floss or a toothbrush bristle, simply no longer makes sense, especially now that the alternatives are so much more beautiful. It was worth the wait.
We decided to resurrect this design in a way that fit today’s needs. We started to source glass companies and silk production around the globe. Silk is quite decadent and absorbing in a way plastic simply cannot be. Plastic and teflon are created from petroleum in a lab, and have never been alive.
But silk, corn, cotton and hemp were alive, and therefore viable floss sources.
We realized that because they are from nature, they would quickly return to nature and are completely compostable. China and India are the two leading producers of silk today. China has been producing silk for over 5 thousand years. Brazil, Turkey, and Vietnam following behind later. The silk worm does lose it’s life in this process, but the number of animals being tangled, maimed, suffocated, and killed by plastic, teflon, and nylon floss is significantly greater.
Why? Because plastICK waste is like a weapon of mass destruction…it kills aimlessly and is itself seemingly indestructible!
Includes: Jar and 40m of silk dental floss.
