It All Started With An Insightful Promise.
For 20 years, mineral makeup pioneer, Jane Iredale, has been creating quality products that adhere to the highest standard of integrity for her eponymous makeup line, jane iredale. With a clear vision of the future, Jane created a mineral foundation that would utilize the most current technology available to provide a makeup that looked and felt exceptional and gave full coverage and broad-spectrum sun protection. In addition, the use of pharmaceutical grade and certified organic (where available) botanicals and antioxidants were a further commitment to this quality.
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.
Far Reaching Vision
Jane Iredale’s concern for the environment and the requirements of
her consumers guide the principles of her social consciousness and eco-friendly commitments. jane iredale-Beauty With Brilliance is very proud to carry recognitions from ECOCERT, the Leaping Bunny Program, PETA and The Skin Cancer Foundation. Additionally, jane iredale printed materials and retail packaging utilize recycled paper. The jane iredale Beauty Gallery (full line display) is made entirely in the USA out of recycled materials and is also 100% recyclable.
Jane’s mission is the foundation to her philanthropic giving and has directed her attention primarily towards women, the environment, the arts and her community.

In 2011, we designed and built a playground in our home town of Great Barrington called Giggle Park. Local townsfolk, employees and partners volunteered their time to build the playground. The giggling hasn’t stopped yet.
