Silk Dental Floss

£4.90

Most dental floss is made of nylon or Teflon (neither are biodegradable) and packaged in plastic. So while each piece of dental floss is tiny, over time that's a lot of waste that ends up in landfill (or worse, flushed down the toilet). And that's before we factor in dental flossers - a single-use length of floss with a plastic handle!

This natural floss is made from Ahimsa (Peace) silk, coated with Candelilla wax and flavoured with organic Spearmint oil. It comes in a reusable glass flint and a metal cap dispenser, to be used again and again with our 2x30 metres refills. Packed in a fully compostable, plastic-free kraft box.

Product features:

  • Made from 100% compostable silk
  • Ahimsa cruelty-free silk suitable to Vegetarians
  • 30 metres gives around 100 applications
  • Reusable glass dispenser & metal cap
  • Comes in a compostable paper and kraft box

 

How to use

Gently pull out about 30 centimetres of floss and roll the floss around your thumb to control the strength and position. Floss slowly between each tooth, reaching close to the gum line.

Should last for 100 applications. Packaging can be recycled or reused when purchasing a refill pack (available soon - jar and cap) or composted (box) when finished.

About Georganics

Most of us accept that good oral hygiene involves cleaning our teeth daily, but we don’t always consider the effect ingesting synthetic chemicals often found in commercial products has on our health.

It all started with one question...
Are all these synthetic chemicals used in conventional oral care really necessary? Research showed us that nature already offers us everything we need to look after our oral health. By ensuring that our ingredients are pure and of the highest quality, we are able to create effective products that not only support healthy teeth but also support a healthy environment.

How Georganics was born
Georganics’ journey started when Alessandro began to formulate his own toothpaste for him and his friends. Soon after, in 2014, Alessandro founded the brand when he was offered the chance to supply his local farmer’s market in Crystal Palace. Charles, being an existing customer, joined Georganics in 2017 after leaving the banking world to join a more ethical business. Today we’ve grown into one of Europe’s most trusted brands of genuinely natural oral care.

Our premises

We're very lucky to be based in the heart of the Sussex countryside. As an eco-conscious company that believes in working with nature - not against it - a location that is surrounded by green spaces, fresh air and natural wildlife seemed like the perfect place to base our natural oral care brand.

Our products are handmade at our premises on Hooklands Farm in Scayness Hill, just five minutes drive from Haywards Heath, West Sussex. 

At our site, our dedicated team manufacture all of our products in small batches to ensure the highest quality is maintained across our lines. Our products are made in our bright and airy on-farm site. Where possible, we try to use ingredients that are local to us to avoid transport emissions and support other local businesses.

Once our products are ready to be delivered to you or shipped to one of our stockists, we take them over to our logistics team who hand pick your order and pack them in our recyclable packaging. We protect your delivery by reusing shredded cardboard from the packaging our ingredients come in, ensuring less waste is created throughout the entire production process. 

Our promise

Actually natural
Not all ‘natural’ toothpastes are what they claim to be. Many still use synthetic ingredients like SLS and Triclosan – that we end up ingesting. At Georganics, we only use pure, natural and organic ingredients for all of our products. This means that we are able to look you straight in the eye when we tell you that this is oral care done naturally.

Sustainable
All of our products are hand-crafted in small batches. They are made from natural ingredients that are sourced as locally as possible. Our packaging is specifically designed to produce no waste to avoid clogging up landfill sites. This way, you can take care of your oral hygiene safe in the knowledge that you are doing well by the planet.

Conscientious
Where possible, all of our ingredients are ethically sourced and organic or food grade. At the heart of our business is our impact on the planet so we keep our environmental footprint low. We do not test on animals, and most of our products are suitable for vegans. Our sense of fairness also stretches beyond our products, as we are proud to be a living wage employer.
