The 6 Best Non-Latex Condoms

Have an allergy or sensitivity? No problem.

non latex condoms

If you have an allergy or sensitivity to latex, then you probably shouldn’t wear latex condoms. That's not an excuse to have unprotected sex. You can and should use condoms to protect you and your partners from STIs and unwanted pregnancy—you just need to use non-latex condoms.

Non-latex condoms are widely available in stores (and also online). Typically, they fall into one of two categories: synthetic alternatives or animal product barriers, both of which are on this list. Synthetic options include polyisoprene, polyurethane, and polyethylene condoms. Animal barriers are commonly made from lambskin.

A note on lambskin condoms: they aren’t as effective as their synthetic counterparts in stopping the spread of STIs. That’s because lambskin condoms have small pores where bacteria and viruses can pass through. Thankfully, the pores are small enough to keep our sperm, making them equally as effective in preventing pregnancy as latex and synthetic condoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So, if it’s a one-night stand with a stranger, you might want to opt for a synthetic non-latex condom. If you’re in a committed relationship with a partner you trust, and you’re just trying not to get pregnant, then you can use lambskin.

There are three major players when it comes to non-latex condoms: SKYN, Durex, and Trojan. In our humble opinion, SKYN makes the best non-latex condoms out there. Unlike Durex and Trojan, SKYN only manufactures non-latex condoms. That’s their whole deal.

Now that you have a firm grasp on non-latex condoms, here are our recommendations for the best ones to buy.

1 SKYN Original
SKYN toner
$17.98

SKYN Original is a a staple when it comes to non-latex condoms. They’re made with polyisoprene, which means they offer the same protection against STIs and pregnancy as latex condoms. They also have a really soft, non-rubbery texture, which feels nice against your skin.

2 SKYN Elite
SKYN toner
$18.99
$14.97 (21% off)

These are just like the original SKYN condoms, only the Elite are 20% thinner, creating that "doesn't feel like it's there" sensation. (If you're someone who benefits from the reduced sensitivity that condoms bring—i.e., they help you last longer—you might want to stick with the thicker option.)

3 Trojan Supra Non-Latex Bareskin
TROJAN toner
$7.69

These ultra-thin condoms are another great option for people who want to feel like there isn't anything there.  

4 Durex RealFeel
Durex toner
$26.00

We'll let you be the judge of whether these polyisoprene condoms really feel like "skin on skin," but we can guarantee they won't activate your latex allergy!

5 SKYN Extra Studded
SKYN feelmore510.com
$6.99

If you like to have a little texture on your condom, then SKYN Extra Studded is the way to go. (Note, studded condoms are typically not ideal for anal sex.)  

6 Trojan Naturalamb
TROJAN toner
$30.46

This is the only non-latex condom on the list that's made from lambskin, meaning that these condoms are effective in preventing pregnancy, but not STI transmission.
