THE FIRST sex toys to receive the ‘officially vegan’ trademark have been revealed.
The Vegan Society has given its Vegan Trademark to four sex toys made by sex tech company Vibio.

According to Sex Tech Guide, Vibio has been making vibrators since 2018 and has been aiming to make them available to vegans.
The Vegan Trademark, now on the vibrators, indicates that an item does not contain any animal products, was not tested on animals and no animals were harmed in the process of making it.
Vibio sells four sex toys that fall into this category.
They’re made out of silicone.
You may think most electric sex toys don’t contain animal products but the Vegan Society claims some do and some are tested on animals.
Ericka Durgahee, marketing manager at The Vegan Society, said: “Many people don’t realize that a lot of lubricants, toys, and even condoms can contain animal derivatives, such as certain enzymes, animal skin, and beeswax, or may have been tested on animals.

“For years, a lot of vegans, whether they’re single or in a relationship, have had to miss out or compromise on comfort and pleasure because of their ethics.”
There are other sex toys that are marketed as vegan but Vibio is the only company to get The Vegan Society stamp.
Vibio co-founder, Patricia Cervantes Santana, added: “We’re firm believers on the power of tech when it comes to creating change and positive impact in the world, and wanted to apply this to the sexual wellness space.
“Our mission has always been creating an inclusive brand that would not only make tools to explore sexuality but combine them with content to guide people in their sexual journey.
“As a vegan myself, it was essential that our products be accessible to the vegan community as well.”
