Looking for a non-toxic floss without PFAS, or Teflon-like chemicals? Want a floss with a natural wax and possibly some options that are biodegradable and zero waste friendly? We've got you covered.

All 9 of our non-toxic flosses are made without PFAS chemicals (unlike Oral-B and other easy glide floss) and are coated in natural waxes. Some of our options for non-toxic floss are made from biodegradable materials, like natural silk, instead of nylon fibers, so theoretically they could be compostable either at home or in a municipal compost. And for those of you looking for zero waste floss, some of our options are also refillable and come without plastic packaging, making them good choices for your health and the planet. All of them will help you keep your teeth healthy and your dentist happy!
