JANE IREDALE’S MISSION STATEMENT
"We pledge to provide a product line that has the utmost integrity and the ability to enhance the lives of women through its effectiveness, simplicity and beauty. We believe that our activities should be governed by the requirements of our customers and our concern for the environment".
Multi-tasking products, Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder, PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser provide four important functions in one: foundation, concealer, sunscreen and active skin care benefits.
Their foundations form a protective barrier on the skin that allows it to breathe and function normally. Laboratory tests confirm that all of our products are non-comedogenic and do not block pores.
The minerals used bind together upon application, so they resist running, creasing and smearing. They can easily be removed with a cleanser or our special micro-fiber cloth Magic Mitt, which requires only water for effective cleansing.
They make a conscious effort to include ingredients in our products that are calming and soothing because we believe that this can measurably contribute to skin health.
The nature of high quality minerals is to interact with light. This is what gives them their celebrated soft-focus effect. jane iredale line includes a variety of foundations that provide a range of finishes from sheer to full, from luminescent to velvety.
Why we love Jane Iredale
Jane Iredale's mission statement has guided the principles of their philanthropic giving, so they have directed their attention primarily towards women and the environment although they have also found room for some other great causes, especially in the arts.
They have been long-time supporters of Breast Cancer Awareness.
Their environmental organisations include Greenpeace, Wildlife Conservation Society and The Nature Conservancy. They are also members of the Green Spa Network and long-time supporters of Teens Turning Green. Jane Iredale was one of the first companies to sign the Compact for Safe Cosmetics.
They are annual contributors to The Red Cross, The Elizabeth Freeman Center (women’s shelter), Habitat for the Humanities and Construct; these are all wonderful organisations that need everybody’s support.
Their love of animals is directed to helping animals world-wide – wolves, polar bears, tigers, endangered frogs. Every species is stressed and would benefit from our help. Locally, they support the Berkshire Humane Society and, they’re proud to say, have a cat-spa named in their honor.
The ISPA (International SPA Association ) Visionary Award is presented each year to someone in the spa industry who has made significant contributions to both the definition and positive movement of health and wellness over the lifetime of their career.
ISPA President Lynne McNees said, “Jane has been a supporter and leader of the spa industry since day one. She has made great strides in reaching women of all ages and nationalities and working to improve their self-confidence.”
