No paraben, no gluten, no casein, no benzocaine and no nonoxynol-9
Have you felt itchy, had burning sensations, or experienced skin reactions when using condoms or gloves made out of latex? You are not alone.
Although latex allergies only affect 1-5% of the population, many more experience discomfort when using latex products.
Latex sensitivity, what if it was something else?
A large number of people who think they are allergic to latex are actually sensitive to another component.
To manufacture gloves and condoms, the latex needs to be transformed so it can be made into a thin film without holes. To have a perfectly mixed and stable latex solution, many chemicals are added to the latex.
No transparency in the condom industry
Unfortunately, it’s not mandatory for manufacturers to list ingredients in detail on the packaging. The situation is the same as for tampons and pads: lack of transparency!
With regular brands, you are likely to be exposed to parabens, gluten, casein (milk protein), nitrosamine, benzocaine (anesthetic), nonoxynol-9 (spermicide) or other endocrine disruptors without knowing it.
You might be sensitive to something else
If you haven’t been tested positive to latex allergy, it’s likely your reactions to condoms or gloves could be due to those toxic chemicals used by certains brands, and not to the latex itself! These would also be the chemicals giving the condoms this nasty plastic-like smell, which we do not put in our products.
Test it yourself!
To see if you have a reaction to the Green Condoms specifically, you can test one in a less “damageable” area than your genitals. Take a condom, open it and put it on your wrist, wrap it in a towel/band and leave it for 10mn to 2 hours. If you have no reaction, you can try testing them on the site of their intended use ;)
BUT, you’ve been tested positive for latex allergy?
We’re sorry to hear that! In that case, you should not use the Green Condoms as they contain latex. There are several other brands on the market where the condoms are made with polyisoprene or polyurethane that are latex-free. Just keep in mind that non-latex condoms are known to break up to 8 times more often than latex ones. (Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, 2003, 35(2):79-86)
