Pull the strings for a greener future!

Our yarn consists of 100% renewable raw materials and is based on castor oil. It’s extracted from seeds of the fast-growing wonder tree. Castor oil is a completely renewable resource that does not require large amounts of water, uses only a small acreage of farmland and is therefore perfectly suited for a future of sustainable agriculture.

Plant-based to the core

Even our spool’s core is made of sugar cane and is recyclable. So after use just put it in the recycling bin and give the material a chance to be brought back to life for another round of use.

Eco-Friendly package

Our packaging is made of FSC® certified cardboard and can easily be recycled. In addition, we compensate for all production-related emissions by supporting climate protection projects.

Naturally sterile

Our floss is enriched with coconut oil, which works against caries in a natural way based on its composition and soothes the gums at the same time.

Fresh all around

To put a fresh feeling around every tooth and also supply a fresh breath, our dental floss is coated with natural mint.

Questions about Tiofloss

If something is still unclear, please have a look at the frequently asked questions. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Where is the Tiofloss made?

The yarn is produced in a textile factory in Southern Europe and then spun into a multi-threaded yarn. Next door, the bobbin on which the yarn is rolled up is manufactured. Together with the knives, the individual parts arrive by truck near Ingolstadt, where they are packed into the cardboard dispenser manufactured in Germany. From there they are transported by truck to our warehouse in Hamburg.

How do I use the Tiofloss?

Brushing the narrow spaces between the teeth is not enough to clean them sufficiently. Since they make up about one third of the tooth surface, it is very important to clean your interdental spaces separately – preferably with dental floss. Grip them firmly with two fingers, guide them into the space between the teeth, place them halfway around the tooth and pull them carefully from the gum to the end of the tooth, along the tooth, also slightly under the gum – twice on each tooth.

Take about 50 cm of floss, wrap the ends around your fingers, apply the floss as described and use a fresh section for each interdental space.

What about the disposal?

The material of the yarn is a plant-based polyamide better known as nylon. Unfortunately, nylon is not recyclable in Germany. Until it is, the yarn is best kept in residual waste, whereupon they end up in thermal recycling. Since our materials are based on plants and plants bind a lot of CO₂ during photosynthesis, only the CO₂ that was bound by the plants during growth and is released again during thermal recycling – this makes the TIO toothbrushes almost CO₂ neutral. This leads to a much better ecological footprint.
The packaging can simply be put into the paper bin, where it is recycled.

The spool core and the knife are best put into the yellow bin, from where they are laid down for a new life.

How do you save on trash?

Instead of the common plastic packaging we use environmentally friendly FSC® cardboard, which you can simply recycle in the paper bin.
