The beauty of Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics is that they are suitable for all skin types and particularly beneficial to sensitive skin that tends to react to certain ingredients found in most conventional make-up, says Jeanette. The formulations are free from the top three sensitisers:- Perfume, chemical dyes and preservatives.
Mineral make-up is derived from pure concentrated pigments such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, offering flawless, long-lasting coverage and colour without irritation, while promoting a healthy complexion. Just a small amount will cover any type of redness or blemish, including acne and rosacea yet it feels feather-light.
The bases act as concealer, foundation, power and sunscreen all in one (no need for separate foundation and powder). They do not contain pore-clogging, drying fillers such as talc and cornstarch and give natural protection against ageing UV rays. Layers of overlapping mineral crystals prevent excessive moisture-loss, while still allowing the skin to breathe, and are light-reflective to obscure fine lines and wrinkles. The minerals anti-inflammatory properties also make them ideal for use after facials, waxing, peels, micro-dermabrasion and laser resurfacing.
Former casting director and producer Jane Iredale began to see the need for a new type of make-up, having worked with leading actresses for whom a perfect complexion was paramount. Introduced in 1994, The Jane Iredale range became the first full make-up line to offer not just colour enhancement but also benefits to the skin.
From her numerous shades of foundations in powder, cream and liquid finishes to lip colours, stains and glosses to lip and eye pencils, blushers, eye shadows, mascaras and concealers.
Jane Iredales versatile products always include extra natural ingredients not found in conventional cosmetics, to condition, moisturise and protect.
