BERLIN (Reuters) – Beiersdorf <BEIG.DE>, the maker of Nivea skin creams, confirmed its full-year guidance on Tuesday as it posted a 6 percent rise in organic group sales in the first nine months helped by a strong performance at its Tesa adhesives business.

The Hamburg-based company said nine-month sales, excluding currency moves and acquisitions, rose 6 percent to 5.4 billion euros (4.80 billion pounds), after increasing 7.7 percent in the first half.
