UNILEVER continues to turn to personal care after difficult Q2



The Anglo-Dutch consumer giant will continue to look towards its personal care business after a difficult second quarter saw sales slow in emerging markets. The Dove soap maker missed second quarter expectations, as sales rose 3,8%, below analysts’ expectations of 4,3%, with CFO Jean-Marc Huet commenting on a slowdown in China and Russia in particular. In personal care UNILEVER saw a 4,5% expansion, whilst the foods and home care business grew 0,7% and 6,2% respectively. And it is these results coupled with its ations in the past 5 years, in which it sold off €2,8bn in sales of mainly food businesses and acquired €3bn of sales from personal care acquisitions, that has seen UNILEVER turn its attentions more towards its beauty brands.
