Here we hope to answer the common questions asked about Pasante's condoms, lubricants, quality standards and brand. If you have a question and it's not been answered here, please ask an expert below.

No, they do not. Pasante condoms contain no animal-derived ingredients.
We offer a range consisting of 3 different sizes, which covers most men.
No, they are all glycerine / paraben-free
No, the thickness of a condom doesn't necessarily correspond to safety. All of Pasante's condoms are electronically tested and all our of our condom ranges have to pass a variety of quality tests. No matter the thickness, shape, colour or flavour, you can rely on any condom in the Pasante range.
Pasante flavoured condoms are intended primarily for vaginal sex. However, they are suitable for oral sex for the prevention of the transition of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). We recommend if used in oral sex that a new condom be used for vaginal sex.
We don't recommend using condoms underwater, as it can increase the risk of slipping off. However if you choose to use underwater or in the shower, make sure you put the condom on before getting into the water. The presence of bath oils and soaps of other substances in the water may have an adverse effect on the latex condom material.
3 years from the date of manufacture. Exception being Silky TLC which is 2 years from the date of manufacture. The expiry date can be found on the pump or sachet. Only use lubricants that are within date.
Pumps: Simply twist the head to open the bottle, then press down to release the lube. Afterwards, apply the lubricant to the outside of the condom. Sachets: Carefully tear open using the slits on the side of the sachet. Squeeze the sachet gently to release the lube. Now, apply the lubricant to the outside of the fitted condom.
No, they do not contain any animal-derived ingredients.
Pasante are owned by the largest condom manufacturer in the world, Karex. All our condoms use only fine quality, raw materials. Every single condom is electronically tested for holes and imperfections. Pasante continues to be the largest condom supplier to the NHS and the brand of choice for many charity organisations. Pasante also offer one of the widest selections of condoms on the market.
At this time, we unfortunately do not sell dental dams/dams. We used to; however, in late 2017 the European Medical Directive Regulation announced that Dams should be classified as a ‘Medical Device’ if the intended use is to prevent STI transmission. This meant from then onwards they would carry significant regulatory requirements to meet the specification set out in the MDR. As a result of this, we were no longer able to continue the supply of Dams within the parameters of health organization’s and the public’s perception, so made the decision to discontinue Dams from our product offering. We continue to explore options to be able to reintroduce Dams into our product portfolio.
Whilst Pasante condoms are already lubricated, you are free to add extra lubricant for a smoother experience and to enhance sensations. Pasante lubricants are formulated from the finest quality ingredients to provide silky smooth lubrication. Being water and silicone based, they're compatible with both our latex and non-latex condoms.
In order to get Pasante Glow glowing, the condom needs to be exposed to light for about 30 seconds. You may expose the condom to light while it is still in the wrapper (turning the transparent side of the foil towards a light), when you are putting it on, or after it is already on. For best results, keep the lights on bright while you put on the condom, or turn up the lights for about 30 seconds after you put it on. Once activated, the condom will glow brightly for about 15 minutes, followed by an afterglow that can last for hours. Re-exposing the condom to light while it’s still on will recharge it and make it glow brightly again. But remember, you should never re-use a condom.
Pasante foils and boxes are stamped with the expiry date and batch number when they are manufactured. The expiration date represents the length of time the product can be safely used for. The batch number is an identification number assigned to a specific quantity of goods. We can use this number to trace the history of a product’s production if required.
