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).

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

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


Available in two vegan flavours: Cranberry and Mint

Vegan Dental Floss by Radius Vegan Dental Floss by Radius

  • spun in natural vegan Candelila wax
  • made out of nylon
  • contains mint tea tree and natural xylitol
  • 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!

    It appears to be made out of nylon….plastic….not exactly sustainable. I get the vegan idea but to be honest silk is far more sustainable.

      Aw, you’re welcome love! please let me know if you end up trying any of them and how you’re liking them! =)

  • […] I really liked Eco-Dent’s Gentlefloss and I’m looking forward to trying their cinnamon flavour. It worked perfectly for me but I understand how it wouldn’t for others considering that they only have two options of floss to choose from. I would definitely recommend trying it out because if you do end up liking it, you’re going to be saving a lot of plastic from ending up in landfills and as of right now, I only know of two brands that have vegan floss.
