The global condom market is projected to be $6 billion USD by 2015 with anticipated sales of over 27 billion units and Europe representing 25% of the global market value. The new Ritex Silver-Light Condom made with Vytex NRL is specifically targeting the German, Austrian and Dutch markets.

"Vytex NRL is a unique form of natural rubber latex, as our patented process removes much of the non-rubber particles, including proteins, that results in a very translucent, soft condom with virtually no odor," says William Doyle, President and CEO of Vystar Corporation. "Natural rubber latex, hence Vytex NRL, is known to be the preferred condom material for tactile sensitivity, strength, and barrier properties. Consumers in these specific markets will have the benefit of a revolutionary condom made with Vytex natural rubber latex. We are delighted to work with Ritex on launching their new ultra-thin condom."

Hans-Roland Richter, Managing Director of Ritex commented, "We are pleased with the technical properties of Vytex NRL and find it to be a cleaner form of natural rubber latex. We believe that producing our condom with Vytex NRL provides us with the strong product differentiation our customers have come to expect from Ritex. Our new Ritex Silver-Light Condom builds upon our tradition of quality and innovative products, being the first condom produced for the European market labeled as 'made with Vytex'." The new Ritex Silver-Light Condom is 15% thinner than regular condoms for optimal sensitivity. To learn more, visit www.ritex.de/kondome/silver-light/
