The Story

Oral hygiene is crucial to maintaining good health and preventing dental issues such as cavities and gum disease. Dental floss plays a significant role in maintaining good oral hygiene, as it removes food debris and plaque that brushing alone cannot reach. Dental floss is a thread usually made of nylon or silk which is used to clean food debris and dental plaque accumulated in interdental spaces.
However, traditional dental floss is typically made of nylon or silk, materials that do not decompose and contribute to the growing problem of plastic pollution. As people become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of plastic waste, there is a growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional dental floss.

agood company that is committed to promoting good health and wellness, we understand the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene.

But how could we make it sustainable?

How we found it

Our sourcing team worked tirelessly to find a biodegradable and waste-based dental floss. After much research, we discovered a supplier located in the coastal province of Shandong, China, close to Mount Tai. The Dental Floss Factory produces floss made from waste corn starch and candelilla wax and oil, which is FDA approved, cruelty-free, and certified by The Vegan Society. We are proud to say that:

  • Our agood dental floss is completely free of plastic.
  • We have also made other innovative changes to the product to reduce our environmental impact.
  • Our floss is sold in slightly larger packs to reduce the amount of packaging required, and refills can easily be fitted into a permanent glass container.

The process and way of working

agood company is committed to finding innovative solutions that not only promote good oral hygiene but also protect the environment. We understand the impact that traditional plastic-based dental floss can have on the environment, which is why we set out to find a sustainable alternative.

Our sourcing team scoured the world for the best waste-based materials and discovered a local source of corn that could be turned into starch. Together with some candelilla wax and oil, we were able to create a completely plastic-free dental floss that is both effective and environmentally friendly.

Our product is not only FDA approved, but it is also cruelty-free and certified by The Vegan Society, making it the perfect choice for eco-conscious consumers.

We made three major innovations to this product to reduce waste and make it more sustainable.

  • Firstly, we removed all plastic from the packaging and replaced it with cornstarch-based bags, reducing plastic waste and promoting biodegradability.
  • Secondly, we sell the floss in slightly bigger packs to minimize the need for multiple purchases, reducing the number of items being shipped across the world.
  • Lastly, we designed refills that can be easily fitted into a permanent glass container, reducing the need for disposable plastic containers.

We are proud to be leading the charge in the sustainable dental floss market and are committed to finding new ways to innovate and create eco-friendly dental products.
