For people with a latex allergy or sensitivity, condoms made from alternate materials are usually considered the way to go. Polyurethane condoms, which are made from plastic, are ideal for those looking for a thinner, barely-there feel. Meanwhile, polyisoprene condoms, which are made using synthetic rubber, offer more stretchiness than ordinary latex does.
Polyisoprene and polyurethane condoms both have pros and cons, but either are a good choice if you’re shopping for latex-free condoms. Lambskin condoms, which are made from an animal product, might appeal to some who prefer a natural option (after all, natural latex comes from trees), but it’s important to keep in mind that lambskin won’t protect against STIs or HIV.
