Jack Black is expanding its offerings by entering a brand new category — acne.

New from the Dallas-based company is the ProSeries Acne Remedy line, which is specially formulated to offer men of all ages a solution to their breakouts and other acne-related concerns.

Featuring acne-fighting and moisturizing ingredients, the line aims to prevent acne without overdrying the skin, the company said.

“Listening to what our customers want (and what they dont) is a core part of the Jack Black brand DNA. The launch of the Acne Remedy Collection is a result of this, as many Jack Black men often share that they still experience acne — whether in their teen years or as adults,” Gabrielle DeLatin, director of marketing at Jack Black, said. “And while we’ve been developing the Acne Remedy formulas for some time now, we’ve really seen an increase in the need for acne solutions due to increased stress and consistent use of face masks. So, the need for quality, effective men’s acne solutions was palpable. Acne Remedy offers no-nonsense products that work as advertised, use the best ingredients and are never tested on animals.”

The collection includes:

  • Acne Remedy Balancing Foam Cleanser is a sulfate-free foaming cleanser containing antioxidants that aim to penetrate pores to help control acne blemishes and blackheads. It contains .5% salicylic acid, turmeric root extract, lactic acid, aloe vera, an oil-free foam and bisabolol to exfoliate and soothe skin;
  • Acne Remedy Overnight Repair Moisturizer is an oil-free moisturizer with adaptogen-rich ingredients to clear current breakouts and prevent future ones. It features a proprietary blend of AHA, BHA and plant-based acids to exfoliate dead skin, smoothe, balance and refine skin texture to improve brightness and clarity; and
  • Acne Remedy Clearing Spot Treatment contains 10% sulfur to help clear blemishes and blackheads while also allowing skin to heal in the process. Designed as a gentle treatment, it also absorbs excess oil, eliminates acne-causing bacteria and soothes the skin.

Jack Black’s Acne Remedy collection, which can be found online at, will be available at various retailers beginning in May.
