Is the new Vegan floss compostable?
Not yet. Dental Lace Refillable Vegan floss is made of bamboo charcoal and PET. We're researching a vegan option that is 100% compostable.
If the item is out of stock, when will I be able to order it again?
Dental Lace is growing at such a fast pace that it is difficult to keep the inventory in stock. Please hang in there while we manage the growth stage of our company. Like the old saying goes, "Good things are worth waiting for!"
Why the change to Candelilla Wax?
Candelilla wax is vegan. It is squeezed from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub. The new wax is not petroleum based and there is, as always, no plastic. As we get closer to a compostable Dental Lace floss, I wanted to make sure we had a safer compostable wax.
Is the Berry Blue blueberry flavored?
Our "style" names are inspired by the beauty around us in Maine. We know how much you love Maine’s wild blueberries but our Berry Blue is mint flavored with a pretty blue label.
Does the floss shred or break?
Unlike some other silk floss that contains a strand or two of plastic to make it stronger, Dental Lace is 100% silk fibers. Our tests did not prove that it breaks or shreds, however, if you find that our floss is shredding, pull the floss straight up and out of its bottle and then cut it. If you drag the floss through the metal cutter before you start, it may shred.
Is the floss compostable?
We’re working on that. Our local commercial composting company is accepting our floss in their compost bins. We have contacted chemists to help us certify it as compostable floss.
How did you come up with this idea?
For years, I’ve carried around dental floss to make sure I could get my teeth clean while at work. Not only were the containers ugly, but I realized that they were rarely recyclable. While it seems like a small thing, it all adds up! So I decided to create my own fashionable, refillable floss containers.
Do you have international shipping?
Yes! We have shipped to Canada, Australia and Europe so far.
