L. International founder Talia Frenkel was inspired by her work as a photojournalist covering the effects of HIV/AIDS on women and girls in Sub Saharan Africa. With over 5,000 new transmissions and over 4,000 people dying from the disease daily, Frenkel appreciated the profound importance of easy access to quality condoms. She made the bold and courageous choice to create a sustainable solution ~ and social movement ~ to make safe sex a human right.
Condoms remain the most effective technology in HIV/AIDS prevention, and are also a super simple birth control option with no hormone disruption. L. International condoms are highest quality across categories including safety, comfort, design, durability and effectiveness. Also, the silky smooth pure silicone lubricant is glycerin-, paraben-, benzocaine- and nonoxynol-9-free.
Made with sustainably tapped, low scent / low protein, 100% natural latex, these unique condoms provide supreme durability, comfort, barrier protection and elasticity. As an added bonus, natural rubber latex products are eventually biodegradable. Each condom is triple tested, thoughtfully designed, and packaged in 100% recycled paper printed with vegetable inks.
For too long ‘green’ has been associated with sacrifice. That’s why L. believes it’s smart to use highly technical materials and products of human ingenuity as long as they’re designed to be compatible with human health and the environment.
L. works with partners on the ground, taking a holistic approach in promoting correct condom usage by supporting education, economic, and cultural programs that empower women and drive HIV/AIDS prevention. For every L. condom purchased, one is distributed in a developing country. Pure, effective, empowered protection ~ perfection!
This 100% natural latex condom from L. International boasts a 'Large' shape with extended bulb for added comfort, and a secure base for perfect fit. Pure, effective, empowered protection ~ perfection!
Female Friendly ~ L. condoms use a silky smooth lubricant that's glycerin- and paraben-free. Designed to be female-friendly, the moisture-rich formula emulates the body’s own natural lubrication. You won’t find any Benzocaine or Nonoxynol-9 in L. condoms either. At L., they use only high-grade ingredients without potentially harmful additives.
High-Grade Natural Latex ~ Quality products start with quality raw materials. L. condoms are made with sustainably tapped high grade natural latex, providing advanced durability and comfort, barrier protection and elasticity. All condoms are uniquely formulated of purified low-scent latex, which is extremely low in proteins, and formulated to optimize protection while being Vegan-friendly.
Triple-Testing ~ Manufacturing has strict quality control and engineering systems in place. They've consulted with leading engineers to develop rigorous methodology to ensure that every product is designed and produced to meet and exceed national and international standards (as well as meeting with more stringent L. quality standards). L. provides pressure and failure testing in design and production of every product, which is triple tested before packaging. With a holistic approach to quality and management, L. condoms offer the best in quality assurance. Reliable condoms = safer sex.
Green-Tech ~ For too long being 'green' has been associated with sacrifice. L. believes it’s good to use highly technical materials and products of human ingenuity as long as they're designed to be compatible with the human and global environment. By employing the latest in condom technology, they've made extremely thin and durable advanced natural latex, while maintaining goals of energy reduction. From testing the reduction of protein levels and omitting lactic casein in their latex, to creating lubricant formulas that maximize pleasure while being moisture-rich and female-friendly, L. is constantly exploring methods of creating better condoms.
Sustainable Packaging ~ L. condoms come in 100% recycled paper packaging printed with vegetable inks, which reflects a passion for aesthetic as well as a goal of minimizing materials while maximizing functionality. No cellophane or plastic is used, and directions are printed on the inner walls of the box to save paper. Modern minimalist black and white design saves on ink waste and makes the end product easier to recycle. Also, L. recycles all unused and excess rubber latex that is created in the manufacturing process. This natural rubber latex is sent to facilities that then re-use the material to make other rubber products, such as flip flops. Natural rubber latex products are eventually biodegradable.
