This floss is made of silk which is softer than conventional dental floss, which is normally made of nylon or polyester (a petroleum product).
The containers (the cardboard box and the floss container) as well as the floss are all biodegradable. The floss container is made from polypropylene with an additive that ensures that the material is fully decomposed within a few short years if it is buried in organic material (in compost or a landfill etc.). It is absolutely fine in the warm and humid conditions found in bathrooms!
