Max Factor

Well, to make a long story short, Max Factor was Jewish!

Since Max Factor's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Max Factor (who's full birth name was Maksymilian Faktorowicz) was born on 15 September 1872 in Zdunska Wola (lodz), Poland.

He was the founder of cosmetics giant Max Factor & Company, he largely developed the modern cosmetics industry and popularised the term make-up in noun form based on the verb.
