About Sir Richard's Condom Company
Sir Richard's believes the power of business can help bring health and pleasure to the global community.

They are building a company that can help address this global health crisis. For every condom you purchase, you contribute one to a developing country as part of the Sir Richard's community.
- Some 215 million women who would like to delay childbearing still have no access to contraception. Many of them live in the poorest countries where governments are having trouble building schools and health systems for their rapidly growing populations. (UNFPA)
- Four in 10 of the 186 million pregnancies that occur in developing countries each year are unintended, meaning they were unwanted or were not wanted at the time. Women who lack access to effective contraception account for 82% of all unintended pregnancies. (UNFPA)
- According to UNAIDS, nearly 13 billion condoms would be needed by 2015 to help halt the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections worldwide. The reality falls short. In 2008, 2.4 billion male condoms were provided by UNFPA, USAID and other donors.
- The number of people living with HIV worldwide has continued to grow, reaching 33.4 million in 2008. In the same year 2.7 million new HIV infections occurred, almost half (45%) among people younger than 25 years. (UNAIDS, WHO: HIV epidemic update. Geneva 2009.)
- Estimated amount spent on integrated condom programming in 2000 was $226M, and in 2008 was $92M, which represents a 60% decline. (UNFPA, NIDI database)
- Similarly, less than 40% of young people in developing countries are estimated to have basic information about AIDS and HIV prevention. (UNAIDS, WHO: HIV epidemic update. Geneva 2009.)
How are Sir Richard's condoms different from other condoms?
They have taken great care to ensure their condoms are amongst the finest possible. Sir Richard's are manufactured using 100% natural latex, which is important because they don't use any filler ingredients and latex is a renewable resource that comes from the rubber tree. Furthermore, their condoms are vegan-certified, and their silicone-based lubricant does not contain ingredients that have known to be harmful to the body such as spermicide, parabens, and glycerin.
Does Sir Richard's contain other ingredients and why are they used?
Sir Richard's condoms contain trace amounts of key stabilizers, specifically corn starch, magnesium carbonate, and ammonia. Here's why these ingredients matter:
- Corn starch: helps keep the latex from sticking to itself and make it easier to unroll.
- Magnesium carbonate: improves the tensile strength of the natural-latex rubber
- Ammonia: prevents coagulation and kills unnecessary bacteria
The U.S. FDA recently released new labeling requirements for spermicidal lubricants including the increased risk of getting HIV from an infected partner, its inability to protect against HIV/AIDS or other STIs, among other warnings. Studies also indicate that the use of spermicide can increase vaginal irritation. Furthermore, parabens are chemical preservatives that can interfere with the endocrine (or hormone) system, which includes your ovaries, hypothalamus and thyroid.
