The sisters Jean and Jane Ford, from Indiana, founded Benefit Cosmetics almost 40 years ago. Following university, the two were featured in an advert for Calgon detergent, and decided to upsticks together and found a company in San Francisco. Torn between a casserole cafe or a beauty boutique, the sisters turned to the ancient art of the coin toss to decide what kind of business they settle for. As you may have guessed, they opened up a beauty boutique initially named ‘The Face Place,’ back in 1976, and branded themselves as a quick-fix specialist geared towards last-minute beauty emergencies. They received an unconventional break when they developed a ruse-flushed nipple tint for exotic dancers, a product which has since sold over 10 million bottles.
Forty years later, and after a makeover of their own, Benefit cosmetics sell at over 2,000 counters in over 30 different countries around the world. Celebrated for their top-quality products and business acumen, Benefit Cosmetics even won a Guinness World Record for the greatest number of eyebrow waxes performed in 8 hours by a team, after an eye-watering total of 382 waxes.
