About

This is „Zauberfaden Floss“, Louis', Marc's & Burak's 3rd project after two successful campaigns with 16.000+ fulfilled orders. Thanks to all backers for your amazing support in the past and in the future!

Zauberfaden ECO Floss - Great floss meets smart packaging 

Zauberfaden Floss is a vegan and expanding floss in a biodegradable packaging featuring best cleaning attributes such as Charcoal and Xylitol - an effective floss combined with a smart packaging. For the maximum floss experience we add the unique flavor combination of Watermelon and Mint. Our Zauberfaden floss is completely developed and produced in Germany and Italy guaranteeing highest quality.

All Vegan thanks to microcrystalline waxes


Zero waste packaging - everything biodegradable!


Scientifically proven “Expanding is King”

A study indicates the advantage of cleaning with our expanding floss (Genovesi et al.). You find the complete study in our presskit. 


Maximum cleaning effect thanks to Charcoal and Xylitol 

Charcoal is extremly adsorbent and can bind bacteria in the mouth. Using activated carbon discolouration in the approximal spaces can be removed. 

Xylitol is a natural sugar and our body produces 5-10 grams every day. Xylitol has been carefully and scientifically studied. The results are clear, it helps reducing the risk of caries and is important to guarantee a good oral health.

Bacteria stand no chance ;)


Flavor your life!

We have mixed two exciting and unique flavors to choose from:

And even better is our strech goal: if we reach a funding of >100,000 € you can decide in a survey, which extra taste combination we should create for you and get one for free!

Why is interdental cleaning relevant?

Cleaning your interdental spaces is important in order to prevent tooth loss and diseases such as periodontitis, diabetes, or even heart attacks. More than one third of the entire tooth surface consists of interdental spaces, but an ordinary toothbrush is not able to reach these spaces. Therefore, you should treat your interdental spaces with special care by using the Zauberfaden Floss. Otherwise, bacteria begin to metabolize the food components and inflammations such as caries and periodontitis are triggered. 

                 


How to floss like a boss

Flossing can be that easy. We show you how:  

Step 1: Take out the tiny little string. 50 cm (1,65 feet) is perfect.  
Step 2: Wrap it around your fingers. The expanding floss will be gentle to your skin.
Step 3: Draw it tight and slide between your teeth. Your thumbs guide the floss.
Step 4: Clean teeth and gum with up and down motion. Finish where is the next interdental space? 

          


It kinda becomes an addiction :)

This is our third Kickstarter campaign - it kinda becomes an addiction :) Thanks for the great support for the last campaigns with more than 16.000+ backers and packages sent out from Germany to more than 100 countries on our green planet.

Developing innovative tools to clean interdental spaces efficiently and effectively became our passion. We are addicted to the idea of finding the best, coolest, easiest and most pleasant way to clean your interdental spaces. From our experience there is not the “one” tool which everybody can and should use. It depends on the anatomy of your interdental space, (which tools fit for your spaces) as well as personal preferences. But what we definitely know is which tools and attributes are the most important ones. Last year, Louis tested numerous different types of flosses in his dental office. There was always something missing and none of the flosses were future-proven. We want to change that - the idea: a floss with high cleaning power and a smart environmentally friendly packaging combined with an unique flavour experience. The result - Zauberfaden Floss.

To take the next step we need your help to fulfill our mission. We need your support to improve oral care for everybody within our community and beyond.

Our story

This is our third Kickstarter campaign! Thanks to you we raised more than 500,000 $ with more than 16,000 happy backers, who believed in us and our product.

Our journey started with a simple, but clever idea: While studying dental medicine Louis recognized the importance of interdental cleaning. But as he was unsatisfied with the cleaning performance of existing interdental care solutions, he started developing innovative products to improve and simplify interdental cleaning. His childhood friends Burak and Marc, both with a business background, soon jumped on board and the idea became reality in 2012 – our first product the WINGBRUSH® Interdental Brush was born and our journey turned into a business.

After a lot of prototyping, bringing the WINGBRUSH® to the market and having two successful Kickstarter campaigns, we were more than excited to have a positive impact on dental health!

We want to revolutionize oral care since day one, we constantly strive for excellent product quality, happy consumers and a great user experience. In order to support a greener world, we are looking for the best way to do so on a daily basis. Plastic packaging was yesterday, recyclable packaging is the future. Furthermore, it was our personal concern to produce a vegan and animal testing free product. We feel fortunate to make your daily-life not only easier, but also greener by providing you with our latest product: Zauberfaden Floss.

Risks and challenges

We reduced the risks to a minimum to meet the estimated delivery dates. In our first Kickstarter campaign, we experienced the challenges that came along with the unexpected high amount of 13.000 orders. At our second campaign we showed, that we deliver right on time! We learned fast ;)

We are cooperating with a major producer of oral care products in Europe. All development steps were made in cooperation with them, so we can guarantee an oral care product of high quality. Our manufacturer is ready to produce, all we need is your support to press the button and start the production.

But please consider: there is always a little risk that things don't go as planned, whether it's a delay in the manufacturing timeline, shipping date or something else. We promise to communicate open and honestly as well as working around the clock to solve any upcoming problems.

If you have any questions or concerns, during or after the campaign has closed, you can always contact us at hi@zauberfaden.co or via messaging here on Kickstarter.
