Sales for the consumer division, which includes the skin care brands Nivea, Eucerin, La Prairies, Juvena and others reached $1.26 billion.
The group said sales and profit growth was driven by successful product launches, particularly the introduction of a new Nivea Sun line and a new Nivea Pure deodorant in Europe.
