Veganism doesn’t apply to just diets and skin care routines. You can also practice a vegan lifestyle…in the bedroom!
Vegan condoms aren’t exactly a new product, but they’ve been gaining more attention as this lifestyle has become more prevalent. Even if you aren’t vegan, these types of condoms are a great alternative to latex or just a chance to try something new.
Below is everything you need to know about vegan condoms:
What Are Vegan Condoms Made Of?
While not every condom is created equally, we can tell you what you won’t find in vegan condoms. Most vegan condoms are free of irritative chemicals such as talc, spermicide, and parabens. Not only are some of these chemicals not vegan, they may also be the reason behind UTIs and allergic reactions.
Why Vegan Over Latex?
According to PETA, some latex condoms contain an ingredient called casein, which is derived from curdled milk — we definitely wouldn’t want that near our vaginas. Latex is also a common allergy, so vegan condoms may fare as a better option to practice safe sex without the irritation.
Where Can I Find Vegan Condoms?
They’re surprisingly easy to find! Health food stores and websites offer a limited selection and you can also check out vegan condom websites such as Glyde or Sustain Natural for a larger variety of options.
