"As a dental hygienist, I get to try every kind of floss made. I like this floss A LOT. It tastes great, good texture, and love that the container is reusable and can be refilled –you're all over it, Akamai!"  — Cat





The Ultimate Floss


We spent hundreds of hours researching and testing a wide range of tools designed to remove bacteria between teeth and gums. Everything from dozens of floss brands and styles— including silk floss (breaks, just "ok" at removing plaque and bacteria), glide (nasty chemical coatings), and others. We also tried oral picks (tons of plastic waste, bulky, expensive) and other tools. 

 

None did the job as we envisioned. We thought...

  1. Why not optimize floss so that in addition to removing plaque, it was infused with ingredients beneficial to oral health? Doing so was a real technical challenge as we worked with our dental advisors and engineers at our manufacturing partner. 
  2. Why not drastically cut waste & make it refillable? Our Refillable Floss System™ does that, reducing waste by more than 70% over traditional flosses. When empty, simply pop open the case and insert a new bobbin.
  3. Why not utilize advanced thread technology? Our floss uses an advanced multifilament thread technology made up of 500+ filaments — each strand thinner than a human hair. Our multifilament threads expand to grab more crud from between teeth and gums. It physically traps and removes more bacteria. 
  4. Why not make it a color that is helpful? We chose black as a color that helps give a visual guide for the amount of stuff you are extracting.

 

What's this floss made of?

 

Infusion: Fulvic Acid, Clove, Tea Tree, and Ceylon Cinnamon Essential Oils, Beeswax Learn more about our natural ingredients and their quality standards.

Floss: Polyester microfiber

Weight: Spool floss refill: 6 grams (.18 ounces)


What’s not included?


Chemicals or coatings typically found in many flosses. E.g Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) (added for the “glide factor”) which are linked to thyroid disease, dementia, cancer, fertility issues, and birth defects. Read more on the study here.

 


Why is this floss made out of plastic? Is it recyclable?


Using our floss for 60 days requires a mere .18 ounces of polypropylene plastic. To put this in perspective. The total weight of plastic used in 1 plastic jar for vitamins weighs about the same as our floss used 365 times. We feel this is worth the tradeoff for oral health benefits stemming from microfiber technology.

70% less waste with our Refillable Floss System™

  • If everyone on our planet flossed 1x a day, the plastic containers disposed of in a single year could fill a football stadium 6 stories high.
  • Our floss container can be refilled many times. Using our refills and the original container has the potential to cut plastic waste by 70% or more.
  • Subscribing to our refill spool of floss not only has an environmental benefit, but it will keep you reminded to keep up with your beneficial floss routine.


How to use the refill system:

  1. When empty, pop open the case & remove the old spool’s plastic ring.
  2. Insert a 2-month refill spool.
  3. NOTE: If the spool does not fit easily into the container, congratulations, you have extra floss! Just unwind a bit, and insert. More instructions here.

Please note: The small metal part (floss cutter) could come loose. If it does, just slide it back into position. To avoid losing this piece, be sure to open the container and change over a flat surface (not your sink!)

Yes, it is worth it.

It's just better. I'm all out and the backup floss I am using from Walgreen's is just not as good. As long as you're flossing, you should have the most effective floss

Best floss!

The black Akamai floss is the best I have found……..efficient and does not get “caught”. That said, I have to say that the spool container should be redesigned.
It does not release the floss easily, does not cut the floss well, and “opens” when it shouldn’t.

Great Floss!

I really like this floss! It feels like it cleans better than the other “white” floss I was using! The roll lasts a long time too!

Get the nasty stuff out of your mouth!

This floss is strong and effective. Gets the nasty crud out from between your teeth...you can really see it with the dark color of the floss. I also like that the spool is refillable.

Great floss. Works well for tightly spaced teeth where other floss breaks.

We are working to eliminate as much plastic in our household as possible. It's great that you can refill the holder. I would suggest Akamai tweak the size of the holder since the refill bobbin barely fits in the dispenser and does not unroll for the first few uses. If the refill fit the dispenser better I would give 5 stars.
