Jane Iredale Cosmetics

Maintaining healthy skin is one of the best ways you can enhance your appearance. This is why carrying the Jane Iredale skin care product line at our New Jersey cosmetic enhancement practice is extremely important to our plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Godek. This line of makeup is not simply an improvement upon the traditional approach to makeup; we view it as new technology. The fact that this skin care line is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and many skin care professionals is testament to its ability to help patients put their best look forward.

Four In One
Using micronized mineral bases that are essentially concentrated pigment, the Jane Iredale line is free of fillers such as talc. A small amount gives unparalleled coverage as patients can use this product as a powder, foundation, and concealer all in one. The Jane Iredale line’s concentrated pigment can also provide comprehensive protection from the sun’s rays without the use of synthetic ingredients.

SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and the FDA
SPF 20 PurePressed Bases & SPF 20 Amazing Bases – Made with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, this sunscreen provides broad-spectrum, chemical-free protection instantly. The sunscreen also has a “Very Water Resistant” rating.

Fast, Weightless Coverage
Patients can apply this skin care line with a sponge or brush and attain coverage that would typically take up to three products to achieve. Jane Iredale products are designed to result in sheer weightless coverage that brightens the skin and revitalizes your appearance.

Non-Comedogenic & Oil-Free
The crystals contained in this product, when viewed under a microscope, appear as overlapping fish scales. The crystals act as a filter to allow for the free exchange of air and gasses to keep the face and skin looking fresh. The minerals in this line are also non-comedogenic. Many patients who have struggled to control their acne claim improvement in skin tone and texture once they started using the Jane Iredale products. An added bonus is the oil-free properties of the skin care line, as they only contain oil when it is shown to improve and condition the skin.

Minimum Allergy Risk and Sensitizers
Substances that cause irritation of the skin can also bring on allergic reactions and increased sensitivities. Reactions can also be exasperated by a weakened immune system, sun damage, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and other harsher treatments. The Jane Iredale skin care line contains none of the common culprits such as chemical preservatives, dyes, perfume, or alcohol. Quite the opposite, some of the substances in these products are known to have beneficial effects on skin: titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are anti-inflammatory in nature and can help calm the skin.

Concentrated Pigment (Coverage)
Jane Iredale powders are extremely effective as a natural-looking makeup and/or a camouflage because concentrated pigment masks irregularities in the skin color and tone and interacts with light to create a soft look effect and illusion of perfection in the skin. To cover the most common types of skin redness, including acne, rosacea, and erythema, only a small amount of the Jane Iredale product is needed.

Jane Iredale mineral particles undergo a micronization process to bind the product together on application. The surface tension this creates defies gravity and holds the minerals tightly to the skin resulting in minerals resistant to running, creasing, and smearing. The products will only come off with a cleanser or Jane Iredale’s Magic Mitt.

Why Minerals?
The Jane Iredale line is known as The Skin Care Makeup® because it is designed to be safe and beneficial for overall skin health and radiance. Recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists throughout the world, Jane Iredale’s Skin Care Makeup® utilizes the most up-to-date colors and skin care benefits that conventional makeup typically can’t match.

The Jane Iredale line is a sophisticated blend of minerals and pigments, micro-pulverized using proprietary technology and techniques to form microscopic particles that lie flat. These particles overlap to form a filter and allow the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from the sun and other environmental damage, as well as air-borne pollutants. The minerals are extremely well-designed, and the staying-power is unmatched as they rarely need a touch-up during the day. These silky-feeling powders are water resistant and will typically not crease or smear no matter how strenuous the workout or how much time is spent in the water. These innovative minerals are also available in many shades so there is one for every complexion and ethnicity.
