The BURST floss is incredibly adsorptive, yes that’s a word!, and that’s because it has activated charcoal as part of its composition. The floss is particularly effective in removing surface stains from your teeth because of the exponential surface area of charcoal.
What’s the difference - Absorption vs. Adsorption. Absorption is the process in which a fluid is dissolved by a liquid or a solid (absorbent). Adsorption is the process in which atoms, ions or molecules from a substance (it could be gas, liquid or dissolved solid) adhere to a surface of the adsorbent.
