Superior to the other brands
Many companies sell bamboo charcoal floss and make claims of it being biodegradable, when in fact, it’s just nylon with some bamboo charcoal powder for colouring. Some other companies sell corn floss in a glass jar which is sourced from China with questionable claims about being biodegradable and no traceability of raw materials. We also tested vegan wax claimed to be used and it did not work with dental floss.
That’s why ecoLiving spent years sourcing an EU manufacturer with a clean factory so we have total control over the ingredients, where they are sourced and can ensure maximum quality. Our dental floss is 100% vegan, made with a scientifically formulated food-grade, vegetal wax with NO palm oil and no GMOs.
And it’s cruelty-free, unlike silk
Silk floss is the only home compostable floss out there but it’s cruel – to make it, they boil or gas silkworms alive and there’s NO regulation for peace silk (which is meant to be a way of extracting the silk without harming them) and PETA warns against it.
