Flosspot is a mini mason jar filled with luxurious silk dental floss, lightly waxed for strength and ease of use between tight teeth, lab tested for purity. It is not flavoured because flavouring changes the lab results, which we do not want. Fully compostable. Silk is quite decadent and absorbing in a way plastic simply cannot be. Plastic and teflon are created from petroleum in a lab, and have never been alive. But silk, corn, cotton and hemp were alive, and therefore viable floss sources. We realized that because they are from nature, they would quickly return to nature and are completely compostable. China and India are the two leading producers of silk today. China has been producing silk for over 5 thousand years. Brazil, Turkey, and Vietnam following behind later. The silkworm does lose it's life in this process, but the number of animals being tangled, maimed, suffocated, and killed by plastic, teflon, and nylon floss is significantly greater.
