Consider mineral makeup an extension of your skincare.

Mineral makeup is rich in skin-loving ingredients, with each jane iredale product formulated specifically to nourish, protect and care for the overall function of healthy skin. With hand selected natural, vitamin packed ingredients to enrich each product, we ensure your skin is getting the best of botanical beauty around the clock.

To celebrate all there is to love about clean, mineral makeup, we’ve curated this list of our favourite jane iredale ingredients so you can see precisely the effect clean makeup and botanical ingredients can have on your complexion.


Pomegranate Extract

Punica Granatum, or pomegranate extract, is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient. A potent antioxidant, pomegranate works to protect the skin from both environmental and free radical damage – damage that leads to increased physical signs of ageing.

You’ll find pomegranate extract in our POMMISST Hydration Spray, meaning you can mist your skin with antioxidants and work to protect it from free radical damage as often as your makeup needs a refresh. You’ll also find pomegranate within a number of our powder formulas, including the Amazing Base Loose Mineral PowderAmazing Matte Loose Finish Powder, PurePressed Base Mineral Powder, PurePressed Eye Shadows, GreatShape Contour KitsPurePressed Blush, GreatShape Eyebrow Kit, Bronzer Refills, So-Bronze Bronzing Powder, PureGloss Lip Gloss and Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain.

The Pioneer in Mineral Makeup

The jane iredale range was the first of its kind, a makeup range that was good for the skin. A range that eliminated the common nasties found in conventional makeup. jane iredale actually delivered skincare benefits while concealing and camouflaging skin imperfections or simply evening out the skin to look flawless behind the camera. This meant patients, actresses and everyday women could (and still can!) reap the benefits of high quality skin care even when you’re wearing a complete face of jane iredale makeup.

Green Tea Leaf Extract

We love to sip on green tea to hydrate and deliver nutrients to our bodies, but when applied topically within mineral makeup, green tea extract has some incredible benefits for the skin too.

Camellia Sinensis Leaf, or green tea extract, actually contains 20 times the antioxidant effect of vitamin E, meaning it can delay the skin’s ageing process. It’s also high in ethylxanthines, which the National Cancer Institute believe have the ability to help prevent skin cancer by fighting the damage caused by UV rays. Green tea is also a natural anti-inflammatory, making green tea-rich mineral makeup perfect for irritated, sensitive and inflamed skin.

You can find green tea extract in a number of jane iredale foundations and concealers, which means the products you’re applying to conceal any redness or blemishes are actually working to relieve the skin of those symptoms throughout the day! You’ll find Green Tea Leaf Extract in: Glow Time BB Cream, Zap&Hide cBlemish Concealer, Circle\Delete Concealer, Enlighten Concealer, Corrective Colours, Absence Oil Control Primer, Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener, Balance Hydration Spray, LipDrink Balm.

Blackberry, Raspberry and Blueberry

Berries, particularly blackberry, raspberry and blueberry, are a potent source of antioxidants. Mineral makeup rich in blackberry (Rubus Fruticosus) and blueberry (Vaccinium Angustifolium) fruit extract or raspberry seed oil will work to condition the skin and give it a youthful glow while working to control free radicals and enhance your skin’s natural protective barrier.

Our lip collection, a portfolio that includes full coverage lipsticks through to sheer, high shine glosses, is filled with berry extracts to condition, soothe and protect the lips as you add a wash of colour to your pout. You’ll find berry extract in: LipDrink Lip Balm, Triple Luxe Lipstick, Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain, Just Kissed Lip Plumper, Sugar& Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper, Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion, Smooth Affair Primer for Oily Skin.

Citrus Fruits

Bitter orange extract, orange oil and orange peel wax are rich in citric acid, giving them the ability to fade dark age spots, sun damage and pigmentation. When included in mineral makeup, orange extract enriches and conditions the skin while working to brighten the overall complexion. Orange derivatives can be found within a number of jane iredale products, including our Balance Hydration Spray and Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener, which both work to lock moisture into the skin and deliver a bright, radiant glow to the complexion.

Citrus Limon, or lemon peel extract, is as beneficial for the mood as it is for the skin. Our Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray harnesses the powers of lemon for both the complexion and the mind, working to protect and hydrate the skin while the light, citrus fragrance lifts the mood and alleviates stress.

You’ll also find citrus fruit extract in: Glow Time BB Cream, HandDrink Hand Cream, Just Kissed Lip Plumper, PureGloss Lip Gloss.
