DOCTOR REYNALDI: HER STORY
1970-90: THE BEGINNINGS OF HIS CAREER
In 1979, Dr. Maria Grazia Reynaldi became the first woman to graduate in pharmacy with an experimental thesis on the chemistry of cosmetic products. Her professional career did not begin immediately, after graduating she married and gave birth to two children who today support her in carrying on the family business.
In 1980 he opened his first laboratory shop where anyone passing by could see the laboratory where the products sold to the public were prepared. In twenty years the company grew and Doctor Reynaldi opened, with the collaboration of her mother Celestina Indemini, a beauty institute and other sales points in Turin, Bardonecchia, Porto Rotondo and Salice d'Ulzio.

With the new millennium, Doctor Reynaldi opens REYNALDI SRL, another cosmetics company for third parties, in a factory of more than a thousand square meters where offices, production and a point of sale to the public coexist. In the same year, the Doctor's sons, Andrea and Marco, and her daughters-in-law Grazia and Laura joined the company. Thanks to the company's application, it collaborates with a Korean brand for the commissioning of new products.
In 2004 the company received the API WINNER award as an example of successful entrepreneurship. The following year, Doctor Reynaldi flew to the USA, exporting her products overseas, establishing herself for the quality of her products and for her history as a company born from nothing, like many American companies.
