New Jersey Jane Iredale Skincare Products
The Skin Care Makeup® – Our Difference
The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin. That’s why everything Jane Iredale develops is a true extension of skincare. This makeup is not just a refinement of conventional makeup; it’s a new technology. It’s so effective it is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals.
Four In One
Jane Iredale uses micronized mineral bases that are concentrated pigment. No fillers, such as talc are used. Because of this concentrated pigment, a minimum amount gives unsurpassed coverage and becomes a foundation, powder and concealer all in one. This concentrated pigment also gives high sunscreen protection without the need for synthetic ingredients.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and the FDA
SPF 20 PurePressed Bases & SPF 20 Amazing Bases – Formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, the minerals give instant, broad-spectrum, chemical-free sun protection. They also have a “Very Water Resistant” rating. For more information, please refer to Jane Iredale: SPF Explained.
Fast, Weightless Coverage
Apply with a brush or a sponge for coverage that would normally take three products to achieve. The result is sheer and luminescent and feels weightless.
Non-Comedogenic & Oil-Free
Under a microscope, the mineral crystals look like overlapping fish scales. These crystals form a filter that allows the free exchange of gasses. The minerals are non-comedogenic. There are many testimonials from acne patients claiming improvement in their skins since using Jane Iredale mineral makeup. The only oils in these formulas are in products where oil helps condition the skin – such as in under-eye concealer and lip products.
Minimum Allergy Risk
Allergies and sensitivities are usually brought on by substances that cause irritation to the skin. Reactions are particularly common in skins that have been compromised in some fashion through a weakened immune system, sun damage, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, etc.
Substances that most commonly cause these sensitivities are chemical preservatives, chemical dyes (usually labeled as FD&C), perfume and alcohol. Our makeup contains none of these sensitizers. In fact, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are anti-inflammatories and may help calm the skin.
All Jane Iredale individual Material Safety Data Sheets of raw materials in powder bases support that irritation, burning and stinging of the skin are not caused by Jane Iredale ingredients. Further, Jane Iredale processing does not result in any chemical change in the raw materials, so the reaction of the mixed ingredients remains the same as the individual ingredients. They have eliminated from their powders all perfume, chemical dyes and chemical preservatives. These are the top three sensitizers.
When the letters FD&C precede a color, it means that the color has been approved by the FDA for use in foods, drugs and cosmetics. When D&C precede the color, it signifies that it can be used only in drugs or cosmetics. FD&C dyes are derived from petroleum or historically coal tar; some are also synthetic.
Concentrated Pigment (Coverage)
The word “pigment” usually means a colored or white compound that is insoluble in a solvent. (The word “dye” generally refers to a chemical compound, most often of petroleum origin, which is soluble.) Jane Iredale pigments are made from micronized minerals only.
The reason Jane Iredale powders work so well as a natural-looking beauty makeup and/or a camouflage is because the concentrated pigment not only masks color but interacts with light to create a soft-focus effect that creates an illusion of perfection. A small amount of the minerals will cover most types of redness including acne, rosacea and erythema (redness).
Because of the micronization process Jane Iredale mineral particles undergo, they bind together on application. When applied to a clean, moisturized skin, the surface tension this creates overcomes gravity and holds the minerals tightly to the skin. The result is that the minerals resist running, creasing and smearing and will only come off with a cleanser or our Magic Mitt. No special cleanser is required.
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have anti-inflammatory properties and will help to calm erythema. Zinc oxide is also anti-microbial.

Jane’s line is a highly-sophisticated blend of minerals and pigments that are micro-pulverized, using proprietary technology and processes to form microscopic flat particles. These particles overlap each other on the skin to form a filter that allows the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from air-borne pollutants. The staying power of the minerals is so great that they rarely need a touch-up during the day. Because these silky-feeling powders are water resistant, they won’t crease or smear even during the most strenuous exercise.
These state-of-the-art minerals are available in so many shades that there’s one for every complexion no matter what the ethnicity.
