Are you flossing your teeth with petroleum or carcinogens? Majority of the floss in the market are made from cheap nylon, derived from petroleum. Not only acts as environmental pollutants, petrochemicals are proven to pose many health risk. How about the coating? Most of floss in the market are coated with perfluorinated polymer (PFC) made with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE or Teflon). They are coated with the substance that was used to coat teflon pan. Yes, you have thrown out the last teflon pan, how about the “teflon” floss in your bathroom?
As you are trying to get rid of the last bit of vegetable fiber in between your teeth, toxic chemicals made from perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) might be leeching into your body. Being healthy is just doing little steps everyday, like using organic silk floss. And please don’t skip brushing your teeth.
Enough said, use organic silk instead. Don’t give your body another excuse to fall sick.
Completely free from gluten, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, GMOs, colouring, phthalates, paragons or other harmful additives.
There’s no shortage of floss on the market, but not all of them are as special as ours.
From the materials we use to the flavors we infuse, RADIUS® flosses are compassionately made, deliciously effective and like nothing you’ve ever experienced before for three main reasons:
Luxurious silk and vegan-friendly nylon
We’re championing a return to the days before nylon products, when floss was made from glossy and luxurious biodegradable silk. Our Natural Silk Floss® is spun on small machines in CORSEDA fair trade co-op, in the mountains of Colombia, which supports more than 80 families.
We also wanted to offer a 100% vegan-friendly version, so we went out in search of a high-level silk alternative, and the result is a floss made from the finest-grade nylon filament. It’s pliable, spongy and, of course, highly effective.
Flavors with benefits
Our floss flavors weren’t just selected on a whim. We wanted them to have additional oral health advantages as well as a great taste, which is why we picked USA-grown cranberry for its antibacterial properties, and natural mint tea tree, a renowned antiseptic.
Additionally, for a hint of delicious sugar-free sweetness, we included Xylitol — a natural flavor enhancer (from USA-grown birch tree bark), which has been proven to reduce acidity in the mouth while preventing bacteria, making it a great asset in the fight against tooth decay.
Coated with care
We coat all our flosses in 100% pure, natural candelilla wax (derived from candelilla shrubs from the Southwestern US desert) for maximum glide-ability. They’re also freefrom glutens, preservatives, GMOs, artificial sweeteners, colorings and fluoride, for your peace of mind.
Why Does BPA-Free Matter?
We strive to make our products as safe and toxin-free as possible, seeking out materials that don’t include any suspect or harmful chemicals, or unnecessary additives.
Like, for example, Bisphenol A (commonly referred to as BPA) — a carbon-based synthetic compound that interferes with your hormones in a detrimental way, and is proven to be particularly damaging to the health of babies and young children.
In other words, BPA isn’t something you want anywhere near your mouth, let alone your child’s. And yet it’s commonly found in hard plastics like those used to produce water bottles, food packaging and even your typical toothbrushes.
We can assure you that RADIUS® products do not contain BPA. Never have. Never will.
