Condoms Archives - SKYN

No method of contraception can ever be 100% effective. However, when used correctly, condoms offer the best protection against STI and are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. Choosing the correct fit of condom and using SKYN lubricant can further reduce the likelihood of breakage.

Our condoms should be stored below 30°C in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.

Yes. All our condoms – including ribbed and studded varieties – are suitable for use during anal sex. To increase comfort and safety, using plenty of lube (and patience) is always recommended.

Yes. The flavourings used for our flavoured condoms are food grade and our lubricants are made with ingredients safe for human ingestion. However, you should always use a new condom if you switch between oral, vaginal or anal intercourse.

SKYN condoms and lubricants do not contain Nonoxynol-9. Though the use of Nonoxynol-9 was previously widespread across the world, products containing N9 – as it is also known – have never been manufactured or sold under the SKYN brand. The World Health Organisation has stated that “there is no evidence that condoms lubricated with N9 are more effective in preventing pregnancy than lubricated condoms without N9”. Furthermore, the compound can cause irritation and retard the healing of wounds with which it has been in contact.

Yes. None of our products contain animal derivatives.
