German consumer goods firm Beiersdorf reported slowing sales growth for its Nivea skin care brand in the second quarter on Tuesday, although it confirmed its outlook for 2019.


Nivea sales expanded 3.2% in the first half - Reuters


First-half sales came in at 3.837 billion euros (£3.54 billion), a rise of 4.8% after stripping out currency effects and acquisitions, compared to 6% in the first quarter.
Beiersdorf shares fell 2.6% in early trade.

Nivea sales expanded 3.2% in the first half. In the first quarter sales had increased by 4.9%.

Mass-market labels like Nivea are struggling amid the rise of small, disruptive brands, and as consumers favour more natural ingredients and premium products, prompting Beiersdorf to push pricier lines like La Prairie and Eucerin.

Last month, Beiersdorf announced it was setting up an innovation unit to develop new "indie" brands and strengthen existing lines such as Labello, 8X4, and Hidrofugal.

First-half operating earnings rose 1% to 592 million euros, stripping out special factors of 11 million relating to Beiersdorf's acquisition of U.S. sun care brand Coppertone $550 million in May.

Beiersdorf confirmed its guidance for 2019 group sales growth of 3-5%, and an operating margin of 14-14.5% in its core consumer business unit.

Shares in French rival L'Oreal fell last week after second-quarter sales growth missed forecasts and the cosmetics maker said it expected little improvement this year in the United States where demand for make-up is slowing.
