Skin Care Makeup
The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin. That's why everything we develop is a true extension of skin care. Our 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.
Non-Comedogenic & Oil-Free
Our makeup is non-comedogenic (doesn't block pores). Mineral particles form a protective barrier on the skin that allows it to breathe and function normally. This protective barrier also traps environmental pollutants. (We always advise taking off makeup at night in order to remove what it's collected during the day. Ugh!) Even though we know our minerals don't block pores and act as anti-inflammatories and anti-microbials, we still test all of our makeup for comedogenicity in a laboratory. This attention to detail is why we have so many testimonials from acne patients claiming an improvement in their skins since using jane iredale. The only oils we use in our formulas are in products where we want to help condition the skin - such as in our under-eye concealer and lip products.
All jane iredale products provide protection from both UVA and UVB rays and are formulated with chemical-free sunscreen actives. Our mineral sunscreen actives, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, provide instant, Broad Spectrum, Water Resistant 40 Minutes, sun protection. Only sunscreen products that pass the US FDA Broad Spectrum test and water resistancy requirements, and have an SPF of greater than 15, may claim “Broad Spectrum,” Water Resistant 40 or 80 Minutes, and make the additional use claims: "decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging if used as directed with other sun protection measures."
