What’s vegan about condoms?

When non-vegan latex condoms are manufactured, they are bathed in an animal protein called casein to make them softer and more pliable. Obviously this is a no-no for people with a vegan lifestyle.

 

Although casein is commonly extracted from cow’s milk, veganism shuns animal products and byproducts entirely, so vegan alternative condoms were created.

 

They still work, right?

Definitely! If properly certified vegan condoms are effective methods of birth control and STI prevention. Look for condoms that are certified by vegan associations and pass international testing certifications.

 

But why go vegan?

The answer is different for everyone, but the two most common reasons are for personal health, and a desire to reduce the world’s reliance on animal products to help create a more sustainable and cruelty-free future.

If you lean more toward a vegan diet — your lifestyle should follow.  That includes everything from non-leather shoes to casein-free condoms.

 

My partner has a latex allergy, can we still go vegan?

Latex-free vegan condoms exist, and are often made in separate facilities from the latex condoms to prevent cross contamination. In fact, most non-latex condoms are vegan from the start since they don’t use animal products in their manufacturing process.

 

My partner likes their current brand and fit

But do you?

The good news is there are many brands adding vegan condoms to their lines. Along with brands like Durex, Kimono, Lelo, ONE, and Trojan, there are also vegan-focused condom companies such as Glyde and Sustain.

 

Additionally, you can get many different kinds of vegan condoms, including ultra-thin, ribbed, flavored, and more.

Where can we get them?

You can buy vegan condoms online and at various stores — be sure to keep an eye out for casein-free options!
