Vegan Dental Floss Options

Most dental floss is coated with beeswax, making them not vegan. I’ve checked the ingredients for Tom’s of Maine and Desert Essence‘s dental floss and tapes and they unfortunately do contain beeswax so although they are cruelty-free, they are not vegan (but suitable for vegetarians). Of course, using this dental floss is not the only way for you to achieve white teeth. In fact, you’d be better off going to see a dentist who is just as good as den mest omtenksomme tannlege Oppegård beboere kan burke, as many Norwegians would say. Finding a good dental clinic could be difficult when you are looking for help with your dental health, so using somewhere like this Babiner dental clinic or somewhere local to you, might be a good way to go. For example, if you are unsure about the dental practices in your area and where to go, you can google ones in your specific area, e.g. If you live in Oregon, you would google a dentist in that area and it would pop up with something like ‘Gresham dentist Dr. Seth Monson‘ for you to look at.

As of right now, I could only find two brands that have 100% vegan dental floss, as well as being cruelty-free.


Both flavours are vegan: Cinnamon and Mint

  • contains essential oils and enzymes to reduce plaque
  • packaged in a cardboard carton rather than plastic case
  • made out of nylon

  • spun in natural vegan Candelila wax
  • made out of nylon

  • no glutens, preservatives, GMO’s, artificial sweeteners or color, or fluoride

They also have single-use floss sachets:

Please do note that Radius does have another dental floss but made from all natural pure silk, which of course isn’t vegan.

I could only find two, so let me know in the comments below if there’s a vegan dental floss brand that you use or know, as I love discovering new vegan brands!

    Great site. One of few that are honest and intelligent when it comes to wading through all the marketing vegan hype. I’m vegan. It’s a pleasure to read the information on your site.

    Hello dental floss appears to be vegan.
