Establishment of RYOR

RYOR was established in 1991 by Eva Štěpánková. The foundation of the company is linked to the strong personality of its founder. Eva Štěpánková was born in 1945, grew up in Poděbrady and graduated from Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague.

During the first four years after graduation, she worked in different branches of chemistry; in 1971, she joined the Institute for Medicinal Cosmetics where her focus shifted more towards manufacturing and development of cosmetic products. Seventeen years later, in 1988, she went on maternity leave, during which she participated actively in the development of products for the State Agricultural Enterprise Prague-West; one of the products received an award by the Ministry of Industry.

In 1991, after her maternity leave, she decided that she didn’t want to sell her ideas to other institutions any more, and established a company based in her family home in Prague 5, near Strahov. In 1988, after the Velvet Revolution, when business opportunities opened up in the Czech Republic, special schools for cosmetologists began to appear, as did many new beauty salons. That is why RYOR began by developing products for professionals; retail products appeared only a year later. Gradually, the company grew from the initially two people to today’s approx. 80 employees.

Currently, there are almost 200 products in the company’s portfolio – 120 retail products and 80 products for professional beauty salons.

Several years ago, the company launched complementary products, such as native nutrition (neither heated nor chemically treated) called Elixir of Life, as well as special detox teas which are a part of skin care and body shaping and modeling.
