Jane Iredale in New Zealand
Receiving an invitation from Professional Skin and Beauty to have lunch with Jane at Mantells on the Water at the Pier in Westhaven Auckland, created great excitement. The day was full of surprises with models wearing the most beautiful bridal gowns, with the application of Jane Iredale Makeup of course, a delicious lunch, listening to Jane a very inspirational woman and then to have the pleasure to listen to Jan Hellriegel who has an extraordinary voice was just the end to a perfect day.
Jane Iredale is the President and Founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, a company she founded in 1994 which brought the mineral makeup line Jane Iredale to the aesthetic industry. She was the first to supply this industry with a line of makeup that had skin care benefits.
She was inspired to develop a makeup that was good for the skin by her career in the entertainment industry where she saw actresses and models struggling with the ill-effects of the many kinds of makeup they wore. Her experience in working with women whose careers depended on a clear complexion allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers, but also destroyed self-confidence.
The products are based on micronized minerals and are made without
talc and without chemical dyes or synthetic preservatives such as parabens and formaldehyde. As a result Jane Iredale products are carried by destination spas, salons and medical clinics throughout the world. From its base in Massachusetts, Iredale mineral Cosmetics has expanded into over 40 countries.
