Beauty Inspiration

A few of us from the American Spa team were thrilled to be able to attend a mini celebration of Jane Iredale-The Skincare Makeup's 20th anniversary with makeovers and jewelry shopping last week. Among beauty treats and baubles in our goody bags was a little booklet containing little-known facts about the natural cosmetics line. Here are a few we thought you would enjoy!

  1. The company is headquarted in Great Barrington, MA, which was voted the number one small town in the U.S. by Smithsonian Magazine in 2012.
  2. 87 percent of employees are women and 42 percent have been working with the company for more than five years and 8 percent for more than 10 years.
  3. The Jane Iredale headquarters includes an organic fruit and vegetable garden, which is tended by employees.
  4. Philanthropy is important and the company has donated more $232,000 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer in the last years of partnership (more on spas helping the cause).
  5. For each product in the line, there is a short application video on the YouTube channel.
