(Reuters) - Procter & Gamble Co <PG.N> reported better-than-expected first-quarter sales on Friday, boosted by strong demand for beauty and home care products.

Net sales rose marginally to $16.69 billion beating analysts' average estimate of $16.46 billion, according to I/B/E/S data from Refinitiv.
