Household Insecticides:

Household Insecticides grew by 34%. We delivered broad-based growth across premium formats (aerosols, electrics and non-mosquito portfolio) and burning formats. Our focus is to drive premiumisation and innovation with the launch of Goodknight Gold Flash, Goodknight Smart Spray and Goodknight Natural Neem products. We have new launches within burning formats planned for the medium term. We will continue to build on our strategic pivots of
taking the category beyond mosquitoes and scaling up our personal repellents range.


Soaps delivered a third consecutive quarter of double-digit sales growth of 41%, and we continued to gain market share. We continue to focus on micro-marketing initiatives to fuel growth. Our new launches in Health are scaling up well. We continue to navigate high input costs through calibrated price increases.
