Everything You Need to Know About Vegan Condoms

Everything You Need to Know About Vegan Condoms

If you're sexually active, then it's very likely that you've used contraceptive condoms before for preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). But as we strive towards a cleaner, greener future, most vegans or environmentally conscious individuals may be shocked to learn that the majority of condoms aren’t, in fact, vegan-friendly.

The most common material for condoms is latex rubber. In order to ensure that the latex is smooth and comfortable, most manufacturers will use casein, a milk derivative, during the manufacturing process. This creates an issue not only for vegans, but for those with casein or milk allergies who are unaware of the ingredients involved during the manufacturing process.

And if you're not vegan, there's a multitude of other reasons to avoid standard latex condoms and opt for the vegan variety instead! Many condoms on the market contain glycerine, which the body naturally treats like a sugar. This is an issue because yeast thrives off of glycerine – so if you're having issues with yeast infections, you may want to consider making the switch!

If you are an avid avoider of parabens, then you might want to double check what your contraception is actually made of. While the evidence surrounding the negative effects of parabens is still a bit of a grey area, it's probably best to avoid putting chemicals anywhere near your sensitive areas if you're not 100% sure what they are!

Sir Richards

For the ultimate worry-free fun, the Sir Richards condoms are created from all-natural latex, and are free from glycerine, parabens, spermicide, and petrochemicals.They are also vegan certified and PETA approved.

This fun collection pack gives you the best of all worlds, offering a sample of each of their varieties: classic ribbed, ultra thin, and pleasure dots. If you're indecisive, then this is the perfect pack for you to determine which style is your favourite!

If you're still not convinced, Sir Richards also donates one condom to those in need, for every one that's purchased. Not only are you supporting a natural, vegan company, but you're also helping people who need it!

Glyde

Glyde condoms are another totally vegan form of contraception! Certified by the Vegan Society way back in 2006, these condoms contain no animal bi-products and use only natural colours and flavours.

These condoms are manufactured using the highest quality natural latex, with an exclusive, patented "double dipping" process to ensure they are extra strong without being too thick, ideal for preventing breaks or slips.

Glyde has a great range of delicious flavours to choose from, including blueberry, strawberry, cola, and vanilla! They also have several different sizes available to find your best fit, so you can ensure there will be no condoms breaking with this brand!

Lubricants

As both of these condoms are latex, it's important to remember that you cannot use oil-based lubricants with them, as they increase the chance of your condoms breaking. Silicone-based or water-based lubricants will work perfectly fine, however!

Lubricants are ideal for making everything a little easier to slide in. While the condoms themselves are already pre-lubricated, there's no reason you can't add a little more!
