Jean and her twin sister Jane co-founded the cosmetic brand back in 1976 with a whimsical theme that still shows to this day through their branding.

While they started off with products like their Real Lengthening Mascara and Watt’s Up highlighter, Benefit has grown to be a worldwide loved brand.

Back in 1999, the pair sold a controlling stake to LVMH and exited their brand in 2012.

Jean leaves behind her twin and Benefit co-founder Jane Ford, daughters Maggie Ford Danielson and Ann Ford Danielson, and four grandchildren.
