Who we are

We are a Czech family company producing cosmetics with natural extracts. Our portfolio comprises over 200 products including both retail and professional product line. The founding of the company in 1991 was accompanied by a strong personal story of its founder, Eva Štěpánková, who decided to start a business in her family house in Prague Strahov, at the age of 43, when she needed to make living for herself and her daughter Jana. Read her entire story here.

In the beginning, the Ryor Company was to only produce products for professional beauticians and to only employ 4-6 staff members. Over time, the company has expanded to include a retail product line, which now constitutes a majority, and has more than 80 employees in the company.

You will find products for all ages and skin types in our portfolio. So, simply said - everyone can choose from our products.

We are aware that our best advertisement is a satisfied customer.
