Edgewell Personal Care Company has announced plans to acquire men's skin care company, Jack Black, LLC.

The terms of the transaction, which is expected to close in Q2 2018, were not disclosed. 

Jack Black is currently sold in Nordstrom, Ulta Beauty, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's, Dillard's, Sephora and via Amazon Luxury Beauty, as well as on its own ecommerce site. 

Colin Hutchinson, CEO of Edgewell, stated, "Similarly, Jack Black is a breakthrough brand, driving the growth of the luxury men's category through product innovation and cultivation of a highly engaged, loyal and growing customer base. The Jack Black brand is a strong and complementary addition to Edgewell's portfolio based on its unique brand positioning, prestige channel footprint, and product assortment. This acquisition creates opportunities to expand our personal care portfolio in growing categories in the U.S. and globally while nurturing the strong brand equity that the Jack Black founders have developed."

Curran Dandurand, CEO of Jack Black, added, "We are delighted to be joining Edgewell's family of brands. This is an excellent home for Jack Black, and we look forward to continuing to drive strong growth in North America and expanding our global presence. We've built our leadership position in the U.S. by providing superior skin care products using the best ingredients, that work as advertised, and are never tested on animals. We're very excited about the future and about sharing our products with more people throughout the world."
