Faithful To Nature Biodegradable Dental Floss is a waste-free alternative to regular floss. Ordinary dental floss is typically nylon-based and packaged in a plastic dispenser. While floss is important to use daily for proper oral health, it is not recyclable or sustainable. Faithful to Nature has the solution, with a corn-derived PLA floss that’s completely biodegradable. It’s also packaged in waste-free, plastic-free materials, so you can rest assured every component is eco-friendly.

Floss rips very easily - a complete waste of money
14/04/2021, By Andrea
It is a decent alternative to plastic dental floss, but unfortunately, it is a bit thick for some teeth. Amazing packaging though!
13/04/2021, By Irene
Great packaging but the floss breaks easily if used in the same spot more than once and leaves bits of it in between your teeth. Wouldn’t purchase again.
07/03/2021, By Zweli
A bit thick for some of my teeth, meaning that sometimes small fibres can get stuck in between, but mostly works well!
02/03/2021, By Jasmin
I really like the sustainability of this product, but the gloss itself is a bit thick.
21/01/2021, By Nancy
I love the idea but the floss is so thick I couldn’t even get it through my teeth! Just feels like cotton really. Needs some serious rethinking.
21/01/2021, By B
I think it still needs a bit more working on. It keeps breaking and getting stuck.
21/01/2021, By RobbyJane
Unfortunately this dental floss was too thick and not smooth so it was difficult to use and frayed.
I unfortunately couldn't continue using it. I love the packaging though.
07/01/2021, By Aaliah
So sad that I did not like this product (and I bought a 2 pack refill). I was looking for an eco friendly option of floss, but this brand is too thick & did not go in between all my teeth
28/12/2020, By Azraa
I find that this breaks very easily and sometimes little bits of floss get stuck between my teeth. I get that it's not as strong as normal floss but I think it could do with a redesign.
27/12/2020, By E
Well, I tried it because although there are many bad reviews, there are a few good reviews, and it’s so tempting, given how it eco friendly it is in comparison to normal floss. But I have to say, it really is well and truly awful and I totally agree with the negative reviewers. I realise it doesn’t have the same strength as normal floss. I factored that it when I used it and went as gently as I could. But it got stuck between my teeth immediately and I when I tried, slowly and carefully to manoeuvre it out, it snapped. And that happened every single time. I regret giving this go. Please go try an alternative like panda but don’t buy this! :(
11/12/2020, By Andrea
Not bad. A bit rough and tends to get stuck or snap but I do love that its biodegradable. So I will deal with it rather than using non-eco floss.
02/12/2020, By Julia
I mean... it does the job, but it really hurts my gums. The actual floss is super thin and also breaks and tears... I wouldn't repurchase.
25/11/2020, By Wallis
I really wanted an alternative to the plastic dental floss that is on the market. Unfortunately this was not it. It's basically a tiny roll of cotton that hurts the gums and then breaks when it's between the teeth. It was an overall traumatic experiencing using this floss for the first and last time. Look for others in the FTN store...
23/11/2020, By Jade
The product has potential, but wish it was more durable.
23/11/2020, By Dan
the floss is very weak, I have to use 2 lots as they break easily and therefor makes the product expensive, would rather recommend the panda one

10/11/2020, By Lindi
LOVE the concept and LOVE the packaging, but the thread is too thick to effectively slide btween my teeth and once it's in I sometimes cannot get it out. I feel really sad about this since I Like the glass bottle packaging so much.
30/10/2020, By Zaheera
Unfortunately this floss doesn’t slide between the teeth and constantly gets stuck. Then it breaks off in between the teeth leaving fibers that you have to try floss out. I tried to get out a piece of floss stuck between my teeth for 15 minutes last night and I think there is still something stuck there. Love the packaging and attempt at a natural floss but it’s unusable unfortunately.
29/10/2020, By Georgia
It's a great idea with lots of potential, but it breaks in between my teeth and then I have to use more floss to get the floss out. Also, the price is a bit hefty for the value of the product.
27/10/2020, By Sarah
It's an ingenious design - well done FTN! And a relief not to be adding to the nylon thread in the world. It is strong enough and love the fact there are refills. This is my dental floss from now onward
27/10/2020, By Aliyah
Great Product
27/10/2020, By Karen
Love the idea and the container; the floss is quite thick so it can be difficult to get between your teeth, and you have to be gentle because it breaks and frays easily.
26/10/2020, By Libby
I nearly didn't buy this based on the negative reviews. But I have absolutely loved using it. I haven't even found it breaks as others have said. I will never buy normal dental floss again!
22/10/2020, By Rachel
I love the packaging. Good stuff
06/10/2020, By Corrie
A neat container. Floss breaks but I always have that problem
30/09/2020, By Ruth
I like the idea of this product. The actual floss is a bit thicker than my regular floss, and I struggle to get it in and out between my teeth. As others have noted, it frays and leaves little pieces between the teeth, which is pretty difficult to get out again. Bonus points for looks though!
28/09/2020, By Anna
Love this product which offers an earth friendly solution to the nylon flosses out there in plastic containers. It is a little more fragile than the nylon options, as expected but strong enough to do the job well. Well done FTN
04/09/2020, By Karen
As others have found - it breaks really easily :(. Disappointed with my step to go natural in the dental floss department
02/09/2020, By Anthony
Use gently, this is made from plants and doesn't have the tensile strength of nylon
28/08/2020, By Lyn
It is like using fine cotton or string as floss and it’s so weak it just frays and breaks. I was left with thin frayed strands stuck in between my teeth, which I could not get out. If I tried to pull them out they broke more and were then too short to grab. I couldn’t even brush them out. It nearly drove me insane. I would never recommend this to anyone and never buy it again. Worst product ever.
26/08/2020, By Lily
I really wanted to like this as it's biodegradable, but the floss frays and breaks easily. When bits of it get stuck between my teeth I have to use nylon floss to get it out, which defeats the purpose.
22/08/2020, By B
Breakfast easily . The floss actually tears in the molars and they I have to try and get the stuck floss out . Was hoping for an eco replacement for oral b superfloss .
14/08/2020, By Natasha
Love the packaging and the fact that it is biodegradable. It works just like 'normal' floss.
13/08/2020, By Jessica
I liked the idea of the product. But unfortunately I have a retainer and the floss just brakes when I try use it.
08/08/2020, By Tracy
it really is hard to use and does not slide easily. I feel like it might pull my teeth out literally. I do like that it is plastic free though
08/08/2020, By Diane
Fabulous packaging, but the product doesn’t work for me. The string frays and breaks and gets stuck between your teeth. Makes flossing a nightmare. Two stars for the look, zero for the actual product.
07/08/2020, By Jaya
I love this product in and of itself. It's biodegradable, comes in glass, and is relatively portable too. Unfortunately, in my personal experience it tends to fray and break off between your teeth, leaving fibres that are impossible to remove. If you have teeth that are spaced close together, consider opting for a more robust floss :)
03/08/2020, By Erika
Strong floss that doesn't tear or fray. Love that there's no plastic in the packaging and that I can purchase refills.
22/07/2020, By Casey
Flossing is an essential part of my routine - but the unsustainable aspect makes it a eco hurdle. This floss is WORLD CLASS. Does the job without making everlasting damage on the planet. I've found my solution!
30/06/2020, By Paul
Great product and even better, there is no plastic.
