Launch of SKYN, the next generation condom – the closest thing to wearing nothing
As the foremost organization in Sri Lanka for Family Planning and Sexual and Reproductive Health, FPA Sri Lanka continues its tradition of introducing innovative, technological advancements to this sector in Sri Lanka.
The SKYN condom is designed using the very latest technology to give you and your partner a truly intimate sexual experience. It is the first condom to be introduced to the local market that does not contain natural rubber latex, but instead is made from synthetic polyisoprene. It is therefore safe and suitable for people with a latex allergy or skin irritations.
SKYN condoms, manufactured in Thailand by Suretex Limited, and affiliated to Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, are rigorously tested and manufactured in accordance with ISO 23409 and have been registered under the Drugs Regulatory Authority of Sri Lanka. They offer the same protection against unwanted pregnancies and HIV/STIs as regular latex condoms. This non-latex condom is made from SKYNFEEL, a revolutionary natural coloured material which feels so soft and comfortable, that you'll find it barely noticeable. This avant-garde product is the ticket to an experience of incredible sensitivity.
FPA Sri Lanka’s wide range of contraceptives has won the trust and confidence of generations and we are confident that the newest member to the family will be truly satisfying.
The much anticipated launch took place on the 4th of January at the Shangri-La Hotel. The Chief Guest was popular film actor Sanath Gunathilake. The key note speaker was Dr. Lasantha Malavige (Chairperson – FPA Sri Lanka Medical Technical Advisory Committee and President of the South Asian Society of Sexual Medicine). Mr Naavin from Suretex Limited, Thailand presented a video on the production process of SKYN. The welcome speech was delivered by Mr. Chandima Gunawardena, Hon. President, FPA Sri Lanka, and thereafter an introduction to “SKYN” and how it came to be selected to be marketed by FPA Sri Lanka was presented by Mrs. Thushara Agus, Executive Director, FPA Sri Lanka. The vote of thanks was by Mr. Suhail Junaid, Director Marketing, FPA Sri Lanka.
