Jane Iredale is president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics. Before she formed her cosmetics company in 1994, Jane hailed from a background in film, theatre and television. This experience allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threaten careers but can also destroy self-confidence. This is what led her to develop a makeup line that steers careers and boosts self image by maintaining healthy skin. Jane Iredale introduced her line of unique skin care products in May of 1994. It was the first full makeup line on the market to offer not just color enhancement but also benefits to the skin.
