    In the second quarter of 2022, Fabric and Home Care segment organic sales increased 8 per cent versus year ago. Fabric Care organic sales increased double digits led by strong growth of unit dose detergents and fabric enhancers. Home Care organic sales increased low single digits due to increased pricing and increased volume from innovation versus a high base period which also benefited from strong pandemic-related consumption of home cleaning products.
