LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empowered Products, Inc. (EMPO), a U.S.-based manufacturer of sexual wellness products, announced today that its award-winning PINK and Gun Oil brands of personal lubricants have received CE certification and the CE Mark as Class 1 Medical Devices.

The certification enables Empowered Products to expand distribution and sale of its PINK and Gun Oil products throughout mass market pharmacy and grocery outlets and adult wholesalers in the European Union (EU).

"I am very proud that our PINK and Gun Oil products now bear the CE Mark," said Scott Fraser, president and CEO of Empowered Products. "This is an important accomplishment and a critical step in our company's plan to market and sell our products worldwide."
