Durex maker reports surge in sales of ‘sexual wellness’ products as Covid rules ease Business News

Consumer goods giant Reckitt, behind the Durex brand, has seen increased sales of sexual wellness products in parts of the world where Covid rules have relaxed.

With the easing of foreclosure restrictions in some countries, particularly China, the company has reported an increase in transactions.

Condom sales fell last year when lockdowns and social distancing measures were implemented globally.

But sales are expected to increase in other countries when coronavirus restrictions start to ease, the company said.

The company also said it continued to benefit from increased sales of disinfectant products from its Dettol and Lysol brands, as customers continued to take extra precautions around Covid-19.

Sales of hygiene products increased by 21.1% in the first three months of the year.

However, the company saw sales plummet in its health and nutrition divisions due to stocks of products like cold and flu medications at the start of the pandemic.

Sales of health products fell 16.4 percent and sales of nutrition products fell 12.3 percent.
