ISELIN, N.J., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions and the makers of LifeStyles Condoms, announces today the launch of a revolutionary new sexual enhancement product with the introduction of EPIC®, a male sexual performance enhancer of which Ansell maintains exclusive distribution rights worldwide.
A fast-acting, quick-drying topical spray designed for targeted delivery and application, EPIC has proven to delay ejaculation by reducing the sensitivity of the penis. EPIC features patented DermaSys® technology, a highly efficient transdermal delivery system which optimizes topical delivery through a fast-acting, highly effective absorption process which prevents transferring effects to a partner. The unscented spray also contains the active ingredient Lidocaine, a widely-used mild anesthetic that starts working almost immediately following application. With EPIC, users are able to tailor the application amount to suit their preferences, unlike competing gels and oral medications.
"According to our most recent Sexual Satisfaction Survey, nearly ¼ of male respondents claimed to suffer from premature ejaculation, with 30% of females reporting they'd like sex with their partner to last longer," commented Carol Carrozza, VP of Sales & Marketing, North America for Ansell. "Research and consumer feedback consistently support the demand for sexual enhancement products like EPIC, and we are pleased to provide this valuable resource for an improved sexual experience for both partners."
EPIC meets stringent United States FDA requirements, and is available at a variety of big box retailers across the country.
