Durex sales rose when social-distancing rules were relaxed in the summer, maker Reckitt Benckiser said today.
“Relaxations of social distancing regulations resulted in improved demand for our sexual well-being products,” it said.
Total group sales in the last quarter rose 13% to £3.5bn on last year.
“Following a more challenging first half of the year, relaxations of social distancing regulations resulted in improved demand for our sexual well-being products, including Durex, which saw double digit growth in revenue,” it said in a statement.
“This has been particularly pronounced in markets where the rate of pandemic infection has materially improved.”
