The Brilliant Black Dental Floss is made in China.
TERRA & CO. ・ SUSTAINABLE ORAL CARE PRODUCTS
Terra & Co. creates safe and sustainable oral care products with Mother Earth in mind. Their Bamboo Charcoal Dental Floss is made with activated charcoal, bamboo fiber, and coconut oil to effectively remove buildup and whiten between teeth. It’s fluoride-free and vegan.
This eco-friendly dental floss removes buildup where a toothbrush can’t reach. The activated charcoal's naturally occurring anti-bacterial properties cling to the plaque to remove buildup between teeth leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile. Coated with vegan candelilla wax, this floss is gentle and glides easily between your teeth. This charcoal floss also contains a blend of natural coconut oil and peppermint essential oil that tastes great and leaves your mouth with a minty taste and feeling refreshed after every use. Essential oils are anti-inflammatories that fight tooth decay and infections by eliminating harmful bacteria on your gums and teeth. Black dental floss is a great visual tool to clean even better your teeth as removed plaque contrasts with the color of the floss. It also comes in eco-conscious packaging—a paper box that may be recycled.

How To Use:
1) Break off approximately 18 inches of floss and wind it around your two pointer fingers (or middle fingers)
2) Slide the floss gently up and down between your teeth
3) Curve the floss in a “C” shape around each tooth, and be sure to go below your gum line. Be gentle and don’t force it, though, because that can damage your gums and cause bleeding. You may experience some bleeding in the gums.
4) Don't forget to go between each tooth, especially back teeth.
5) For extra teeth whitening effect brush with our bamboo charcoal toothbrush.

Once enjoyed, all Terra & Co's sustainable oral care packaging can be recycled / upcycled. The bamboo toothbrush handle and floss can go to the compost.
Terra & Co. was created by two sisters, Amra and Azra. It all started with a label. How crazy is it that there’s a warning label on most tubes of toothpaste? They decided that we wanted a danger-free toothpaste. So, they made one.
Amra formulated the ingredients. Pregnant with her first daughter, Amra quickly learned that more than 232 chemicals make their way from the mother’s environment into the baby. Wanting something safe for everyone, Amra turned her kitchen into a toothpaste lab. The natural ingredients you see today were chosen by her. Azra designed the packaging. Along with health, sustainability is another aspect of Terra & Co.’s mission. Azra hones her fine arts background and work as a makeup artist to design the recyclable/biodegradable packaging.
