Akamai INFUSED BLACK FLOSS SPOOL REFILL

$5.00

Our Refillable Floss System™ reduces waste by more than 70%. Revolutionary.

Why we feel this is the best floss on the market...

  • Our Spool Refill works with our Container sold separately.
  • Our Black Floss tape material is clinically proven to remove up to 40% more plaque than typical flosses.
  • Infused with powerful Essential Oils and Fulvic Acid to support oral health. Plus, the black color makes it easy to see how much plaque you are removing. Read more about our fabulous floss here.
  • Refill spools give a 60 day supply flossing once a day using approximately 16" each time.

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…

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

The more we researched the more we realized how crucial flossing is to oral health.

 

Did you know?

  • Poor oral health and gum disease can be linked to several ailments, such as endocarditis, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, premature birth, and many other health conditions like pneumonia.
  • An estimated 300-500 species of bacteria live inside our mouths and can be found in plaque. While some are beneficial, most are not. Look under the microscope.
  • According to a Delta Dental national public opinion poll of American adults, 20% of adults never floss, and 32% of adults reported no flossing in the past week.

How to use

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

Tips

Establish a solid flossing routine. Here’s what works for us.

  • Try to do it at the same time, every day.
  • Miss a day (or several)? just floss at your next designated time. Don’t beat yourself up.
  • Make a visual reminder. Keep your floss on your bathroom sink, in your purse, or car console.
  • Don’t run out. Just like a core supplement, this good habit can die if you run out. (Consider subscribing to our spool refill as a reminder for yourself —“It's gonna keep coming and I want to do this daily”).
  • Remind yourself while flossing that you are removing bacteria that a) contributes to bad breath, and b) could lead to systemic diseases like heart disease, Alzheimer's, etc.

Haven’t flossed in a while? Like with our tongue cleaner, use the appearance and the smell (yikes!) of what you remove as inspiration to keep it up. Yep, it’s kinda gross, however, it does provide great inspiration to make flossing a part of your daily oral hygiene routine. So, get on it and get it out of your mouth daily!

As always: No synthetic or natural derived chemicals, cheap fillers, dyes, or fragrances. Color and scents are a byproduct of the ingredients we use. All products contain only pure, minimally processed, natural ingredients and nothing else.

Q: How do you 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.

Q: What if the spool doesn't fit?

A: During manufacturing, slight overrun variances can occur during high-speed spooling of thread. If this happens, extra floss needs to be unwound and cut in order for the replacement spool to fit in the case. Simply unwind a bit, cut off the excess and insert spool. We understand this is not ideal and are working with our manufacturer to fix the issues.

 

Q: What if the small metal part (floss cutter) comes loose?
A: 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!).

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.

What's not in it

  • No synthetic flavorings — either totally artificial or “naturally derived”.
  • No chemical coatings commonly 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.

Really great Floss!

I am amazed at the lack of placque on my teeth after using this black floss and mineral powder consistently over time. My mouth is so much cleaner. I guess I've actually balanced the bacteria, so it stays that way!

Easy to refill the spool!

Love the ease of using the refills - and of helping the environment in the process. And this is the best floss on the market bar none.

Love It!

Very effective and thorough. Unlike waxed floss which simply removes food particles from between teeth, this floss scrubs the surface as well. Its like brushing between my teeth.

Squeaky clean!

It took me a while to get used to the thickness of this floss( not quite “tape” but a little thicker than normal), but now that I have I’ll never use anything else, love it💕 thank you 🙏

LOVE LOVE

First of all, why isn’t all floss BLACK?! It shows people the gunk they are getting out from between their teeth! I’m really loving this floss. It’s strong and doesn’t break between teeth. The only back draw for me is that some people may have a hard time getting it in between their teeth because it feels a little bigger. I personally, like it and have no problem maneuvering it between teeth. Love that it is fluoride free.

The best I've tried so far

I do like this floss. I spend about 20 minutes in the evening flossing my teeth and this does seem to give me the best results from floss that I have tried.
