TePe Dental Floss gives new life to recycled plastic bottles

The new TePe Dental Floss is made from recycled water bottles and has a container and outer packaging made from recycled materials. Free from PFAS, lightly waxed and infused with avocado oil, it offers effective and pleasant flossing with a fresh and minty result.


A floss made from sustainable sources

“We constantly strive to improve our products in terms of efficacy, quality and sustainability, and I am pleased to say that our new dental floss meets all these aspects by far”, said TePe’s portfolio director Anne-Kristin Ottosson. “Through an advanced production process where no chemicals are involved, post-consumption plastic bottles are transformed into recycled polyester floss, resulting in considerably lower carbon emissions than virgin materials. Even the avocado oil is a byproduct from the food industry.”


Recommended for daily use

TePe’s dental expert Anna Nilvéus Olofsson adds, ”I recommend flossing once a day – it’s a superb way to maintain oral health. TePe Dental Floss glides easily between the teeth and expands during use, which enhances the cleaning effect.”
