Review and Giveaway: Eco-Dent Oral Care VeganFloss and GentleFloss

What makes a floss vegan? What is a good vegan floss? I've seen these questions asked time and again across the web, so I set out to find some answers. It turns out that floss is usually vegan but the wax and/or enzymes used are not. Eco-Dent makes two varieties of floss that come in  innovative cardboard packages. Although both are vegan waxed, strict vegans will want to look for the VeganFloss, as it contains no dairy-derived enzymes.

  • Very light, mild mint flavor (GentleFloss) or mint-free cinnamon (VeganFloss)
  • Thin floss is easy to get in between teeth
  • Can double floss to add thickness
  • 100 yards in each package (most flosses have 50 or fewer yards)
  • Clever eco-friendly packaging
  • Affordable (around $5.50 for 100 yards)
  • Can sometimes be hard to find in stores
If you're looking for a vegan floss, Eco-Dent's VeganFloss is a nice option. The cinnamon flavor is also a fun alternative to the traditional mint. It has the most eco-friendly packaging I've ever seen for a floss. The cardboard box becomes the case for the floss. The only plastic included is a tiny bag around the floss to help keep it fresh.  I would love to see Eco-Dent adding a vegan woven floss to the line in the future and perhaps modify the GentleFloss packaging to make it more clear that it isn't entirely vegan.

The giveaway has ended.  Congratulations to Amanda!

An Eco-Dent representative forwarded the following information: "The GentleFloss has undergone a change in the recent months, and it is now completely vegan as well; honey and milk derived enzymes have been removed. The stock in stores should be switched over soon, if it isn't completely already.  The best way for a customer to know which version of the GentleFloss is which is the red 'starburst' graphic on the tab part of the packaging; if it says 'Vegan Waxed,' it is the old version. The new product will instead say '100% Vegan!' on it."

Way to go, Eco-Dent!  I'm glad to hear that both flosses are now entirely vegan.
