HANX is the first luxury male condom designed uniquely with women in mind.

Here at HANX, we felt that buying condoms was not only difficult for us as women, but also taboo and embarrassing. It is our mission to change this. In a place where sexuality is freely expressed and where access to sexual health services is ever improving, this felt archaic and wrong. Thus, HANX was formed.

Our brand makes it the norm for women, as well as men, to carry condoms. The male condom is the single most effective contraceptive that protects against sexually transmitted infections. We should feel comfortable buying, carrying and using them, and ultimately proud to care for our sexual health.

At present the condom market is exceptionally male-dominated and targeted. There is no condom brand in Europe focusing on women, which is what HANX is here to change.

Vegan, 100% natural and fair-traded latex condoms

Our condoms are premium in every aspect and packaged in discreet luxurious boxes. HANX condoms are made from Vegan, 100% natural and fair-traded latex. This ensures fair treatment of our factory workers, whilst producing a body-friendly product. HANX condoms are ultra-thin for maximum sensitivity, and our clean scent means an end to a clinical latex smell on opening. We are rigorously tested to the highest standard, as verified by our CE mark.

Co-founders Farah and Sarah have been friends since childhood, with a shared passion for female empowerment. Farah has worked in the investment banking industry for 5 years and is a qualified chartered accountant. Sarah is an accomplished medical doctor, working in the NHS for over 5 years, with experience in Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Sexual Health.

HANX is a lifestyle brand, which is changing behaviours, encouraging women to take control and ultimately creating a movement. We are disrupting the condom industry as we know it.
