What is RADIUS Floss Made Of?

May 07, 2015

There’s no shortage of floss on the market, but not all of them are as special as ours.

From the materials we use to the flavors we infuse, RADIUS® flosses are compassionately made, deliciously effective and like nothing you’ve ever experience before for three main reasons:



We’re championing a return to the days before nylon products, when floss was made from glossy and luxurious biodegradable silk. Our Natural Silk Floss® and USDA Organic Silk Green Tea Jasmine is spun on small machines in CORSEDA fair trade co-op, in the mountains of Colombia, which supports more than 80 families.

We also wanted to offer a 100% vegan-friendly version, so we went out in search of a high-level silk alternative, and the result is a floss made from the finest-grade nylon filament. It’s pliable, spongy and, of course, highly effective.




Our floss flavors weren't just selected on a whim. We wanted them to have additional oral health advantages as well as a great taste. 

Additionally, for a hint of delicious sugar-free tooth-friendly sweetness, we included Erythritol — a natural flavor enhancer that also helps prevent plaque and cavities.



We coat our flosses in 100% pure, natural candelilla wax  or organic carnauba wax for  maximum glide-ability. They’re also  free from  PFAS, glutens, preservatives, GMOs,  artificial sweeteners, colorings and fluoride,  for your peace of mind.
