ATLANTA (May 7, 2009)—Vystar Corp. and Alatech Healthcare L.L.C. said they have FDA clearance to market and sell Alatech's Envy condom manufactured with Vytex.
The Envy condom will be the first medical product available in the U.S. made from Vystar's patented Vytex NR latex.
Vystar, which produces Vytex, said its material contains virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can cause an allergic response, while retaining and improving upon all the desirable qualities of latex.
The Envy condom will carry labeling that will reflect the lowest antigenic protein content currently available in a natural rubber latex medical device in the U.S.
