I’ve been eager to try out Coco Floss for a while now because I know many of my dental friends rave about it. Well when I started seeing it pop up at my local Target I was reminded of my eagerness to try it out for myself. Always one to want lots of choices, I hopped online after my trip to Target and ordered a few yummy sounding flavors. So is Coco Floss worth the hype? Read on to hear my full review!

So right off the bat there were a lot of things that I. loved about this floss based on the product description and packaging. This is a company that aims to be as eco-friendly as possible and with that their boxes are made with 100% recycled paper and they are a cruelty free company- no animal testing!
The next thing that I was intrigued about from the product description is that the floss is actually women together with over 500 textured fibers, allowing for it to really grab onto and pull plaque out from in between the teeth. Another product claim is that design of the floss allows it to reach tight areas between teeth without shredding or tearing.
This is a company that prides itself in making effective floss without yucky ingredients. This means that instead of Teflon like PFAS chemicals to help floss glide between teeth, this floss uses coconut oil and microcrystalline vegan wax to do the same thing! This floss is also free of parabens and SLS.
At first I thought that the floss used essential oils for the scents however upon closer inspection I see that is not the case. On the website it states that the scents are a combination of both natural and synthetic components. The company does also say that they are in compliance with both E.U regulations and IFRA Standards for fragrance and fragrance related allergens.
A few thoughts on my first impression. So, I’m not going to lie, I am a sucker for packaging and after opening the package I loved the bright colors of the packaging. The fact that it is made with all recycled paper also made me feel not quite so guilty about loving the packaging. I immediately opened and tried out the Vanilla Bean flavor because I just love vanilla! The smell right out of the package was absolutely amazing… but I’ll tell you that I was underwhelmed with the fact that I didn’t feel like it had much “taste” to it. What I was hoping for was a tasty flossing experience but I would definitely say this floss smells great but does not necessarily have too much taste to it.
I felt the texture and the weight/quality of the floss was far superior to any others that I have tried. Up until now I has been using the Burst floss which I do still love, but I feel like the shape and quality of this floss was superior to that of the Burst floss I had been using. As far as how did it work… keep reading!
I will say that I 100% believe in the effectiveness of this floss. It got out so much plaque from in between my teeth, I was shocked at both the effectiveness, but also at the fact that I had so much plaque between my teeth! Gross! I also had no issues whatsoever with it gliding in between my teeth, even in the tight areas. There has also been no shredding or tearing of the floss in the last several weeks that I have been using it!
Long Term Use
Will this be a product that I use long term? To be honest, I likely will because I think it is a great product. However, I will also tell you that I will likely still use my Burst floss as well and just use whatever I have on hand when one or the other runs out. Also, I feel that the price of the Coco Floss actually is quite expensive so I will more than likely keep my eye out for sales and buy them when certain flavors go on sale in the offseason. Just keeping it real with you!
