Jack Black’s new toner focuses on oil control
Jack Black is expanding its portfolio by introducing the new Oil Control Toner. The product is alcohol-free and features an antioxidant-rich formula that controls oil and shine while protecting skin from the effects of pollution.
“As a brand whose legacy is rooted in advanced, luxury products for men, our new toner is a natural and most welcomed extension to our current facial skincare offerings,” Curran Dandurand, Co-Founder of Jack Black, said. “Men’s facial skin tends to be oilier and thicker than women’s, so when we saw a need for a product like this, we knew it had to come from us.”
Also featured in the toner are red macroalgae to regulate sebum production, witch hazel to dissolve pore-clogging residue, salicylic acid and lactic acid to exfoliate the top layer of dead cells and reduce blackheads, the company said.
The Oil-Control Toner joins the rest of the Dallas-based company’s line of products for oil-prone skin, which already includes the Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser and Clean-Break Oil-Free Moisturizer.
As with other products from Jack Black, the Oil-Control Toner is dermatologist-tested, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, vegan and colorant-free. It can be purchased on the company’s website for the suggested retail price of $25.

Temperley studied economics at the American University in Bulgaria and later obtained her MBA from Henley Business School in the UK. She is a U.K. chartered accountant who began her career with Shell Bulgaria in 1994, which was then followed by a tenure at Cable & Wireless plc before joining Nestlé in 2004.
“We welcome Dessi Temperley to our management team. We are confident that with her broad financial expertise she will contribute substantially to further advancing Beiersdorf’s success and growth,” Stefan F. Heidenreich, CEO of Beiersdorf AG, said. “My personal best wishes go to Jesper Andersen who was an excellent CFO for Beiersdorf and a successful contributor to our path of profitable growth during the past years. Our management team is very grateful for his dedication and achievements.”
