Generally, people believe that latex condoms are vegan because they are typically made of latex, which is obtained from rubber trees. But that is not the case; Case in, a milk protein commonly present in milk products, is what essentially makes it non-vegan. In traditional latex condoms, casein is utilised to soften the rubber during the production process
Contrarily, vegan condoms are a more environment friendly choice. Vegan condoms, which MANFORCE EPIC offers are Nitrosamine-free. Condoms include nitrosamines because they help maintain the elasticity of the latex.
These vegan condoms contain Low-Protein levels along with Low Microbial Load that clearly indicates that they are risk-free. EPIC Vegan condoms contain no harmful chemicals such as parabens/ glycerine that can cause infection in the vagina when left for too long.
Veganism & Sexual Wellness While some vegans choose to solely follow a vegan diet, others recreate a vegan lifestyle, which is where sexual well-being lies. “Everyone tries to be aware about the ingredients in their food and makeup as environmental consciousness grows, but no one is considering the ingredients in the products they use on their bodies in the most private parts.” - MEIKA HOLLENDER, CO-FOUNDER OF SUSTAIN (NEW YORK TIMES)
Any type of condom lowers the risk of STDs and prevents unintended pregnancy; it is recommended to always use condoms to protect yourself and your partner. Fortunately, vegan condoms have been developed as an alternative to traditional condoms that promote women's vaginal health, are risk-free and still feel pleasurable.
Aakash Ranison, a vegan climate activist, wants to raise awareness about the subject but does not believe in pressuring people to adopt sustainable lifestyles because he sees them as challenging practices. His lifestyle indicates a larger predisposition towards an eco-friendly lifestyle combined with switching to the use of natural sexual wellness products.
