The maker of Scott toilet paper and Huggies diapers will soon start charging more for its consumer products to counter rising commodity costs.

Kimberly-Clark Corp., one of the biggest tissue producers, told U.S. and Canadian customers that it’s raising prices for most consumer products to offset “significant” commodity cost inflation, with percentage increases in the mid-to-high single digits. Nearly all price hikes take effect in late June and impact baby and child care, adult care and Scott bathroom tissue businesses, the Dallas-based company said Wednesday in a statement.
