Vystar Corporation Focuses On Vytex Latex Commodities And Licensing; Exits Sleep Diagnostics

DURHAM, NC and ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) -

Vystar Corp. (OTC PINK: VYST) has closed its Kiron Sleep Lab LLC division in Durham, NC in order to focus on its core business of Vytex® environmentally friendly, ultra low protein natural rubber latex commodities and licensing business.

Vystar determined that its focus is better spent on growing its Vytex® latex business rather than the sleep diagnostics business, which has seen decreasing insurance reimbursement and revenue. Kiron Sleep Lab patients who would like to obtain copies of their medical records should contact 866-674-5238, x6 to establish a time for procurement. The mailing address for Kiron Clinical Sleep Lab is 3333 Piedmont Rd, NE, Suite 2500, Atlanta, GA 30305.

Vystar is the exclusive creator and owner of Vytex Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), a multi-patented, all-natural, raw material that contains significantly reduced levels of the proteins found in natural rubber latex and can be used in over 40,000 products.

William Doyle, CEO of Vystar, noted, "We have seen a much larger demand over the past six months for Vytex as a raw material in various industries as word spreads of its many superior properties, including:

1. undetectable levels of antigenic latex proteins to help prevent allergenic reactions;
2. greater strength, buoyancy and resilience than other foams;
3. environmentally friendly and completely biodegradable;
4. virtually odor free raw material and finished goods; and
5. whiter, brighter product requiring fewer dyes for aesthetics."

Doyle added, "We are now able to fully focus on the multiple new products and product lines that we are readying for launch with manufacturing partners. We are testing the only American-made medical exam gloves and have interest from multiple large potential customers. In addition we continue to refine our game changing new ultra-low/no-ammonia, low-/no-nitrosamine and tetramethyltriuram disulphide (TMTD-free formulations) of Vytex."
