Baby, Feminine and Family Care segment organic sales increased 7% versus year ago. Baby Care organic sales increased low single digits driven by increased demand in certain markets and positive mix due to the disproportionate growth of premium products, partially offset by reduced volumes in China primarily due to the temporary disruption of retail markets. Feminine Care organic sales increased high single digits driven by innovation, increased marketing spending, increased pricing and positive product mix due to the disproportionate growth of premium products. Family Care organic sales increased double digits driven by a sharp increase in consumer demand, partially offset by unfavorable mix due to the disproportionate growth of large sizes and club channels.
