- Why SINASILK™ dental floss? Silk is a 100% natural thread that is extremely strong for its weight and thickness. The strength enables it to be used for floss. The results are equally as good as traditional dental floss. The difference between silk floss and plastic floss is that silk floss is completely compostable and non-toxic.
Why not use any thread as floss? Normal sewing thread may harbor bacteria and also may damage your gums. SINASILK™ dental floss is sterile; and its open weave design enables it to pick up more bacteria – naturally. Unlike a number of major plastic floss brands, SINASILK™ does not add Teflon® – a PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE), or any other potentially harmful ingredient, to “Glide” between your teeth. For definitions, see FAQ.
Our glass dispenser is compact, convenient, washable, and reusable. Moreover, it has been drop-tested for durability. Its see-through design means you never need to second-guess when you are running low. When you run out, you can always refill it. No more “disposable” plastics to pollute the Earth.
Our outer packaging is printed with Earth-friendly soy-based ink on 100% compostable Kraft paper.
