With many luxury makeup lines available, it is often difficult to choose which cosmetic and skin care products are not only going to be beneficial for you and the health of your skin but also support the health of our planet via eco-friendly business practices. In search of environmentally conscious and luxury cosmetic and skin care lines, I became acquainted with Jane Iredale at their recent fall collection 2016 product launch in New York City. A number of products stood out to me as beauty must-haves, however first it is important to note why Jane Iredale is right for you:
1) Compassion for Animals: All of Jane’s products are certified as 100% cruelty-free by both PETA and Leaping Bunny – with no animal testing taking place at any point in the product development or manufacturing.
2) Commitment to Quality: Cosmetic manufacturers are required to pass a series of tests, however, Jane Iredale goes above and beyond the mandatory industry testing to ensure that it’s customers receive the highest quality products possible by undergoing a series of additional tests.

3) Concern for the Environment: All product packaging is environmentally responsible and made using entirely recyclable paper derived from renewable resources. All packaging is BPA and phthalate-free and created with the intent to reduce greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions.
4) Commitment to Skin Health: Many of Jane’s products are created with UV-protecting sunscreen and active skin care benefits. Seven products in the line have even been awarded the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation – an award only given to products that have scientifically been proven to sufficiently aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. Additionally, all of Jane’s products are non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested.
