I am so excited to introduce what I feel is the best vegan dental floss on the market yet! This Corn Starch PLA floss from Bambaw is 100% vegan friendly and biodegradable.
The floss is made from PLA which is a bioplastic, in other words plastic derived from plant-based material and Bambaw have decided to use corn starch to create their floss. This makes it 100% plant based but then processed to PLA which can fully decompose to natural elements under certain conditions.
Even though it's not home compostable, it's biodegrade; to biodegrade it needs to be done under certain temperature and enzymes, this happen mostly in an industrial compost where all products made from bioplastics are recycled.
Bambaw are also continuing their efforts to find a solution that is vegan and compostable!
MY FAVOURITE FEATURES
Our floss dispenser is fully made of stainless steel, which means you can reuse for a long time and simply purchase the floss refills whenever needed!
- Besides the reusable floss dispenser, the floss refills are 100% bio based-plastic, derived from corn starch with a refreshing peppermint touch
WHAT IS PLA?
Poly(lactic acid) or polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starc, cassava roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane.

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.
