Skin Care Sales Up at Energizer

June 6, 2013

• Energizer Holdings, Inc. said personal care sales for the quarter increased 0.2% to $652.6 million; for the six months, it remained flat at $1.206 billion.

“Modest top line growth in personal care was offset by declines in household products. The growth in personal care was negatively impacted by extraordinary competitive promotional activity, which we believe contributed to overall category deflation,” said Ward Klein, chief executive officer.  “We experienced flat organic sales in the quarter, as modest top line growth in personal care was offset by declines in household products.” 

Personal care sales for the six months remained flat at $1.2 billion. Skin care net sales increased 8% on both a reported and organic basis due to higher sales of Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat and Wet Ones, according to the company.
