Study Found Popular Dental Floss can be Harmful
A recent peer-reviewed study found that using dental floss that contains PFAS could cause health problems. PFAS, could cause cancer, ulcerative colitis in adults and thyroid disease in children, among other health problems.
Dental Lace does not contain any harmful PFAS. We coat our floss with vegan candelilla wax and spearment essenial oil. No harm to our bodies or the Earth.
