Unilever (UN,ULVR.L,UL) reported that its underlying sales growth was 10.6% in the third quarter, led by further increases in pricing with only a limited impact on volume.

The billion+ Euro brands, accounting for more than 50% of Group turnover, grew 14%, led by strong performances from OMO, Hellmann's, Rexona, Magnum and Lux.

Beauty & Wellbeing grew 6.7%, driven by price with slightly negative volume primarily due to core Skin Care and Hair Care.
