Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals are suitable for all skin types. They diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, minimise pores, even out skin tone and adhere so well, there is minimal transference. Note though there is no SPF protection with this item.
No nasties like oil, talc, FD and C dyes or synthetic preservatives.
Use the Foundation Brush with the Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals for those who prefer a brushed application.

A good antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can be used post-exfoliation, as it frequently has a less acidic pH than water-based Vitamin C.

Vitamin K – Rosacea specialist, Dr. Geoffrey Nase has said: “Vitamin K has been the plastic surgeons´ magical secret weapon for post-surgery bruising (damaged blood vessels). It has been shown to strengthen blood vessels (arterioles, capillaries and venules) in scientific studies. Small concentrations of Vitamin K added to your daily routine may have a very positive effect on under eye bags (swelling), under eye bluish colour (dilated venules returning de-oxygenated blood) and red dilated arterioles that have not been structurally damaged.”
Coenzyme Q10 – A naturally occurring metabolic enzyme found in every living cell of the body. Used daily, CoQ10 helps prevent and reverse the ageing process.

Reduces wrinkle depth by 27%. Increases epidermal turnover and cellular renewal. Acts as a powerful antioxidant.

Mica – Found in nature in crystallised, thin elastic sheets that can be separated easily. They vary in colour from pale green, brown, or black to colourless. It can be shiny or dull. We use mica for its gliding properties in a form that does not cause shine.
