Jane Iredale INGREDIENTS
Ingredients: Bismuth Oxychioride, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide. May contain:
Iron Oxides, Manganese Violet, Carmine.
Bismuth Oxychioride: Also known as synthetic pearl and occurs in
the earths crust.Some claims have been made by other mineral powder companies
Oxychloride is an antiseptic. In fact, it is Bismuth Subgallate that has antiseptic
Mica: Found in nature in crystallized, thin elastic sheets that can be separated
They vary in color from pale green, brown, or black to colorless. It can be
shiny or dull.
We use mica for its gliding properties in a form that does not cause shine.
Titanium Dioxide: Derived from Titanium, which is extracted from the minerals
Rutile and Ilmenite. It gives the greatest covering and tinting power of any
white pigment and it is listed in the FDA monograph as one of the purest and
most effective active ingredients for sun protection.
Zinc Oxide: Also known as Flowers of Zinc, is derived from the mineral sphalerite
which occurs in limestone and dolomites. Zinc is believed to encourage healing
of skin disorders. It is insoluble in water. In an ointment it is used as an
antiseptic and as a protection against skin diseases.
Iron Oxides: Iron oxide is iron combined with oxygen and can be found in nature
or produced synthetically. It varies in color from red to brown, black to orange
or yellow depending on the degree of water and the purity.
Manganese Violet: Derived from pyrolusite, the manganese dioxide ore. A purple/blue
pigment permanently listed in 1976 for cosmetic coloring, including around the
Carmine: A crimson pigment derived from the dried wings of a Mexican and Central
American species of beetle, which feeds on cacti. (The coloring has no known
toxicity and was permanently listed for use in food by the FDA in 1977.) The
brilliant red color only exists if the beetles die a natural death and this
they do by the thousands once they have mated. They are then vacuumed off the
cacti and sent for extraction. Vegans will want to avoid this.
Ingredients: Mica, Bismuth Oxychioride, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Dimethicone,
Jojoba Esters, Tocopherol, Pine Bark Extract.May contain: Iron Oxides.
Dimethicone: Made from sand (silica) that is a combination of minerals but
largely comprised of quartz. This state-of-the-art ingredient replaces the need
for oils and is the coating on our micronized titanium dioxide. Dimethicone
aids spreading, is transfer resistant and imparts a remarkable smoothness and
creaminess to the overall product. It also improves coverage without adding
heaviness. And, it is non-comedogenic and highly water repellent. It gives micronized
titanium dioxide the highest light refractive ability of any titanium. This
outstanding ingredient is one of the driving forces behind the creative evolution
of color cosmetics.
In a recent medical article titled Effective Sunscreen Ingredients and
Cutaneous Irritation in Patients with Rosacea, Dr. Nichols and colleagues
found that the addition of silicon-based protectants (dimethicone and cyclomethicone)
into sunscreens greatly reduced facial irritation that rosacea sufferers experienced
to these products. The physicians performed this study because in their medical
experience patients with rosacea are particularly susceptible to irritation
caused by sunscreen ingredients.
The results of the study demonstrate that in addition to their protective actions,
dimethicone and cyclomethicone were found to have excellent moisturizing actions.
Jojoba Esters: Oil extracted from the beanlike seeds of the desert shrub Simondsia
chinensis. It has been used for many years by Mexican and American Indians for
hair and skin care. Of any oil, it most closely resembles the skins natural
sebum. It gives some protection against UV rays. An ester is a molecule of a
fatty acid and a fatty alcohol.
Tocopherol: Vitamin E. A topical antioxidant and natural preservative with many
known skin benefits. We use natural vitamin E because there is very little incidence
of allergic reaction to it.
Pine Bark Extract: 85%-95% proathocyanidins and flavonoids extracted from the
French Maritime pine tree bark (Pinus pinaster). It is a potent free radical
scavenger and preservative. Its antioxidant capabilities are 50 times greater
than vitamin E and 20 times greater than vitamin C. Its molecular structure
is much smaller than that of vitamin E and C, and, therefore, it penetrates
more readily through the epidermis into the dermis. It is water-soluble and
most importantly it is safe. We have run no tests on the benefit of the antioxidants
in our formulas to the skin, but there are a number of clinical reports attesting
to its topical value as a free radical scavenger and as a preventative against
UVB radiation damage.
PUREPRESSED® BLUSHES AND EYE SHADOWS

in Emerald eye shadow.

and emollient, and forms a soothing, protective film when applied.

because it contributes to adhesive properties.

Lipsticks are made from a number of waxes which can be white, brown, green,
yellow, amber or black. Their use in cosmetics can be traced back to ancient
Egypt, where women coated their bodies with a mixture of melted wax and essential

the fragrance from the essential oils.

Unlike many brushes on the market, our brushes arent cut to shape but
are hand-tied. This is an expensive process that maintains the tapered ends
of each hair by hand molding the bristles to the shape required. The result
is a much softer and more efficient tool. Wash brushes frequently in mild cleanser
and water. Put cleanser in the palm of a hand, and under running water work
the brush head in the cleanser. Rinse and allow to dry naturally. Do not leave
brushes soaking in water.
