We are two women from Woodstock, New York, who had a desire to create makeup that was pure and beautiful.
Nancy Caigan, as founding partner, had the vision, researched the formula, secured our resources and found our brilliant chemist.
Susanna Ronner added her graphic design talent and creative eye in the development of the lip color palette, as well as the design of the logo, packaging, web, and all visual material.
Together, the two of us are friends, dancers, mothers, wives, and committed business partners, dedicated and enthused about creating and growing Primitive Makeup.
Our mother's and grandmother's used to share a traditional European saying with us, (along with a kiss on the forehead and love in their hearts) — a phrase we've adopted to share with all who wear Primitive —"Wear it in Good Health".
