Thank you for contacting P&G Oral Health. We appreciate your business.
We have confirmed none of the substances in the report are used in our dental floss. This study interviewed people about their self-reported use of a wide array of consumer products and foods, it was not focused on dental floss alone. In fact they did not demonstrate a correlation with use of dental floss to an increased presence of any of the reported substances. Our dental floss undergoes thorough safety testing and we stand behind the safety of all our products.
In the supplemental table in the study*, the dental floss data alone showed no correlation to these substances. It was only when trying to combine consumer products that they saw any correlations at all. Even the authors state "Given the numerous sources of PFAS in everyday diets and environments it is difficult to pinpoint which behaviors contribute most significantly to PFAS exposure."
What did the study measure? None of the substances in the study were measured in dental floss. They only looked for a generic marker that can also be found in many other materials.
