Find out if MAX Factor cosmetics are right for you
MAX Factor is one of the oldest cosmetics companies currently on the modern market. It was founded in 1909 by Maximilian Faktorowicz, who then changed his name to Max Factor. He was a businessman and a cosmetician for the Russian Royal Ballet, and he used his talent to build up one of the most famous cosmetics companies of all time. Now, MAX Factor is a subsidiary of Procter and Gamble. Even though the prices of MAX Factor products have since come down significantly, the quality remains unchanged, which makes MAX Factor makeup one of the best affordable cosmetics options today.
