Gently Minted Waxed Silk Dental Floss
The packaging impressed me and shows a clear concern for sustainable practices. While others seem to have problems with the floss breaking, this wasn't the case for me. Some of my teeth are very tight, but I've never had the floss break. Maybe the formula has been improved? Either way, my only worry when I first started using this floss was that it might be rougher on my gums than regular brands, but my gums got used to it after a few days as you'd expect from any other floss.
Love the packaging. Don’t love the floss. It breaks so easily 😭 Maybe it needs more wax? I do like the job that it does. It gets in deep into nooks & crannies, but I end up using so much because it keeps breaking.
I got the pack with the glass dispenser and extra roll. It works great. I'm disappointed that the extra roll comes in a plastic bag. Also, now that I have the glass dispenser, there's no way to get a refill without either getting another dispenser or some other item (toothbrush, lip balm) that I don't want. Seems pretty wasteful. So I'll just wait until refills are available, before purchasing more.
I'm so sorry to hear this! Our floss refills don't come in plastic - those little baggies are actually 100% made from cornstarch and are OK Compost Certified.
Also - we do offer the option to buy only the refill spools (without dispenser). You'll find that option here:

Team etee is big on keeping their chompers and the houses that they live in (ie their gums) healthy, so having a plastic-free floss option was a no-brainer over in these parts.
Each spool contains 30 metres of our 100% pure mulberry silk, candelilla wax and natural peppermint oil floss (total of 60 metres of floss in each 2 spool box - that's 2/3 the length of a football field of floss!) So, let's get flossin' (and we ain't talkin' about that fancy dance all the kids are doing these days)!
Completely biodegradable & plastic-free floss to keep your entire family's teeth healthy!
