Condoms are one of the man’s greatest inventions – it keeps you away from unwanted pregnancies, saves you from sexually transmitted diseases and lets the romance bloom! While most of are now conscious about the ingredients in our food and personal care about no one thinks about the ingredients that go in the most intimate parts of our body – condoms. Unfortunately, not all condoms are safe and most are not vegan. No, we aren’t kidding.

Since the condom brands are not mandated to disclose the ingredients used in their products, they choose not to. Animal products sneak-in in nearly everything and condoms are no exception (who would have imagined). This makes it nearly impossible for a layman to even know whether their condoms are vegan-friendly and toxin-free.

You’d be shocked to know that your trusted safe sex companion isn’t that safe after all, from being loaded with carcinogens to being produced unethically there are a lot of things wrong with them. Here are a few things to look out for:

  • – Most latex condoms contain casein, a by-product of dairy (and a red flag for vegans and those with milk allergies)
  • – Over 95% condoms in the market have chemical additives including parabens and nonoxynol-9 / or spermicide, which have potential health risks
  • – Major condom brands test their products on animals (not cool)
  • – Condoms undergo unethical and unsustainable manufacturing processes

Eco-friendly, natural, organic and vegan. We aren’t referring to your salad or chocolate bar – but condoms. A new breed of condom brands is changing the way ‘safe sex’ is done. From getting their latex from forests certified for sustainability to using natural and organic ingredients to treating the workers well – the new generation condom companies are disrupting the market and making the condom game cleaner and safer.

It’s not just your condoms but you need to make sure your lubricants are also safe. Most pleasure enhancing lubes on the market contain toxic ingredients that have an effect on our reproductive system. Since the vagina and anus are highly permeable areas anything topically applied to these areas can be easily absorbed into the body. The biggest culprit in lubricants are parabens, which have been associated with cancer, hormonal disruptions like fibroids, infertility and reproductive health issues.

Ladies and gents, it’s time to take control of your sexual health!
