Complete Guide On Vegan Friendly Condoms

Veganism is taking over, its everywhere and I’m here to tell you some brands of condoms that are vegan friendly and are helping the word!

First off, I just want to tell you what VEGAN is. A lot of people aren’t sure so I think it would be best to give the meaning of the word;

So, what’s not vegan about condoms?

Most oral contraceptives are produced by pharmaceutical companies that test on animals. If that’s not bad enough, most condoms are generally made with casein, a protein found in the stomachs of cows. Other dairy/ milk ingredients can and are used as well.

What’s wrong with this?

Apart from a cute baby cow being tortured…. It’s simple. The body does not need dairy to survive so why would you insert it? To prevent pregnancy and HIV/AIDS etc? Sure, that’s a good answer but those material in condoms are unfriendly to a lot of ladies causing all types of problems such as irritation and yeast infections… I can’t say from personal experience but those are NOT nice!! So, if you find yourself being in one of those situations it could be the condom to blame.

So, what condoms are vegan friendly?

In recent years safe sex industries have been making efforts to help vegans/ people who would rather not use animal tested products (cause we all gotta start somewhere) prevent diseases etc. Unbelievably vegan condoms are much easier to find than you think.

These are my picks; they do amazing work for you and the world.

Lelo HEX

Hex is wonderful! It’s really a game changer in the condom world. It’s a latex honeycomb design that fits onto the penis nice and snug without causing irritation to the male. It’s not like a normal condom, it’s inspired by Graphene, the thinnest and strongest structure known to science.
Science rules!

Glyde

Glyde were the very first vegan friendly condom I had used. They are a great condom all round. They come in different sizes, flavours, and thinness. If you do find yourself being too big, Glyde will easily cater to that need. Flavours include; crème vanilla, pink strawberry, purple wild berry, blue blueberry, and black cola. All other Glyde condoms have no flavour or smell. They also contain NO parabens, glycerine, or harmful chemicals.

Sir Richard’s

Now I haven’t had the pleasure to try these condoms but they are free of parabens, glycerine nnoxynol-9 and have no harmful ingredients. They also come in a range of sizes; ultra-thin, classic ribbed, pleasure dots, extra-large and if you can’t choose you can always go with the collection box that has a mixture. Sir Richard has a cool packaging as well which always draws people in.

Sir Richard is not only awesome in condoms but when you buy condoms the money goes to good use; Sir Richard help support international program that foster education and social impact. They support GLI’s Women’s Leadership conference. It doesn’t stop at that Sir Richard also supports the LARGEST FREE concert (iKnow concert series) in Uganda which focuses on spreading the awareness of HIV and prevention, this reaches over 7,500 people in hard to reach communities. They also provide scholarship support to low-income youth. AWESOME, RIGHT?!

Hero don’t have a massive range they only come in natural and ultra-thin. Hero condoms are again awesome in feel and wear. Hero also go an extra mile for the environment; they are big on recycled boxes. Also on water recycling and solar power. They are working towards becoming a carbon neutral company. By buying Hero condoms you are contributing to fight against HIV/AIDS and helping to save lives. Every condom = a condom to developing countries.
