jane iredale is an extension of skincare, which means that all products are designed with the health of your skin in mind. This stems to sun protection, which is a very important factor in our day-to-day lives.
Six jane iredale products have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s (a USA based non-for profit organisation) Seal of Recommendation. This means that the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder, Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream, Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser, LipDrink Lip Balm and HandDrink Hand Cream as cosmetics that also include an effective broad spectrum sunscreen. To earn this seal, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that its products sufficiently and safely aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. All of our SPF products are also reef-safe.
So what is an SPF rating? Sun Protection Factor (SPF) indicates the level of protection against ultraviolet B (UVB). The SPF number indicates how long it will take for UVB rays to redden your skin when you use a sun protection product, compared to how long the skin would take to redden without the product. So, the SPF number gives you some idea of how long you can stay in the sun without burning. For example, if you normally burn in 10 minutes without sunscreen and you’ve applied a liberal dose of a sunscreen with an SPF number of 15, you should be protected from sunburn for 150 minutes.
Tinted Moisturiser with SPF
Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser is a lightweight and hydrating mineral foundation that offers SPF 15 and is water resistant to up to 40 minutes. If you are looking for a tinted foundation with sun protection then Dream Tint would be a good choice. It’s a light, moisturising foundation that offers a sheer to medium coverage and can be applied with your fingers, it’s also oil free, so suitable for all skin types. Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream offers a fuller coverage then Dream Tint as well as a higher grade SPF. Shades BB1, BB3, BB4, BB5, BB6, BB7 & BB8 are SPF 25 and shades BB9, BB11 & BB12 are SPF 17.
Looking for a primer with SPF? Our Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 works well to prime the skin before further makeup application because of its hydrating and lightweight formula.
Powder Foundations with SPF
Our Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder and PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation formulas both include Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, which are an active physical sunscreen. If you aren’t using a moisturiser, sunscreen, or foundation with an SPF then we recommend using one of our mineral powders. A dusting of one of our powders will add your necessary sun protection and provide you with a healthy glow. All of our foundations are non-comedogenic and breathable.
Our minerals provide a physical sunscreen therefore there is no need to wait for protection to begin, you will have the necessary sun protection from the moment you apply the minerals to your skin.
