U.S-based ONE Condoms has launched graphene-enhanced condoms, after nearly a decade of research and development.
ONE Condoms' website says that "ONE scientists molecularly bonded graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on earth, with Sensatex®, our proprietary, ultra-soft, vegan latex". The Company explained that when bonded together, graphene molecules fill the space between latex molecules, creating a new material that advances thinness, flexibility, and thermal conductivity.
"Graphene is like a magic ingredient for condoms. It provides incredible thinness, strength, flexibility, and heat transfer – all the things you want in a condom. Our hybrid graphene-latex condom addresses some of the most common condom complaints head on, including pleasure, sensation, and comfort," said Davin Wedel, CEO and founder of ONE Condoms.
"Ten years of research and development is no minor undertaking, but we have remained deeply motivated by our vision of increasing condom access and use across populations. The release of ONE Flex is a huge step forward, and we are proud to be at the forefront of an innovation with massive implications for the sexual wellbeing of our planet," says Wedel.
ONE Flex condoms are FDA-cleared for the prevention of STIs and unintended pregnancies, and the technological advancement is safeguarded by a patent. Thanks to carbon-based graphene, the condom has a natural charcoal hue. All ONE Condoms are vegan-friendly, non-GMO, nontoxic, and free from any harmful chemicals. All ONE Condoms are packaged in tubes made from 100% recycled paper.
