Universal Capital Management Reports Vystar(TM) Corporation Receives FDA Clearance for Envy(TM) Natural Rubber Latex Condom Made with Vytex(TM) NRL
Date:5/8/2009

WILMINGTON, Del., May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Universal Capital Management, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UCMT), a Wilmington, Delaware business development company that provides management and strategic growth resources to emerging growth companies, is pleased to report that Vystar(TM) Corporation ("Vystar") and Alatech Healthcare, LLC announced 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market and sell Alatech's Envy(TM) condom manufactured with Vytex(TM) Natural Rubber Latex (NRL). The Envy condom will be the first consumer medical product available in the U.S. made from Vystar's patented Vytex(TM) NRL, which has less than 2 micrograms/dm2, 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. Natural rubber latex contains over 200 proteins, similar to other natural plant materials, of which 13 are known allergens. The Vytex NRL process was created to significantly reduce these known proteins. Vystar's business model is to assist all manufacturers in marketing the Vytex component of their products.

According to Vystar's CEO, William Doyle, "Vystar is thrilled to work with Alatech in introducing the first natural rubber latex condom with this level of reduction in antigenic proteins to the U.S. market. The Envy condom made with Vytex represents a revolutionary consumer product in which the antigenic proteins that can cause allergic reactions to natural rubber latex have been reduced to a virtually undetectable level."

Doyle added that, "Natural rubber latex is known to be the best material for both tactile sensitivity, strength and barrier protection, which are very important in a condom for user acceptance and maximum protection. Now, consumers can have the best material for protection plus the added benefit of the reduced antigenic proteins."

Alatech will market and sell the Envy(TM) NRL condom to retailers and through other distribution channels, and expects the product to be available to consumers in the coming months. More than 50 manufacturing trials are underway worldwide for other products made with Vytex NRL including medical and non-medical gloves, foam mattresses and pillows, bandages, adhesives and more.

According to Michael Queen, CEO of Universal Capital Management, "We believe Vystar is one of UCM's most exciting holdings. The company has come a long way in a short time, from conception to imminent commercialization due in large part to its professional management team headed by Bill Doyle. This market changing event will certainly help Vystar's sales and profits going forward."
