Unilever’s personal care category, which includes brands such as Dove, Sunsilk and Tigi, are showing high sales results. These brands reported an increase in sales by 12.4 percent, while profits climbed 39 percent to 1.15 billion euros. Noting that the company had experienced a good quarter, Paul Polman, Chief Executive Officer, Unilever, London, says, “I see innovation as the key driver of Unilever’s growth, and I am encouraged by the progress we are making after many years of underinvestment in our brands. The innovation program is picking up and getting to competitive levels. The products launched within the last two years now generate 33 percent of turnover, a new high for the company”.
