Where Did It All Begin

Back in the day, following her studies at CIDESCO Beauty Academy in Stellenbosch, South Africa, Bio Sculpture Founder and CEO, Elmien Scholtz opened her first salon in Cape Town and later in Port Elizabeth.

One Problem……she could not find any premium quality nail care products that did not damage the natural nail.

Elmien came to the conclusion that if she wanted a product that ticked all the boxes, it would have to be developed from the ground up. By consulting with the best scientists in their respective fields and applying the latest technologies available,
Bio Sculpture Gel was born!

In 1988 Elmien Scholtz introduced the first ever UV Curing, Soakable, Colour Nail-Gel to the world. Today the Bio Sculpture head office is situated in the heart of South Africa in the small town of Clocolan. The 3000sqm ultra-modern factory is an environmentally friendly building that makes use of self-supportive water storage. We care about the environment as much as our nails. This is where the internationally recognised, award winning nail brand of Bio Sculpture calls home, and this is where all the magic happens.

“Your hands are your calling card in life, your nails their focal point”

What Is Bio Sculpture Gel

Bio Sculpture is the original soak-off colour gel nail system that focuses on providing the healthiest manicure and pedicure products and services of the highest quality in the nail care industry.

Bio Sculpture has consistently led the market in innovation since its inception, bringing to the market the first colour gel, soak off gel and gel nail sculptures. Bio Sculpture is also the first company in its class to have undergone a stringent independent Clinical Research Trial and received a 5 Star safety rating*.

Bio Sculpture  products are VEGAN, ANIMAL CRUELTY FREE, and “10 FREE” NON TOXIC

Bio Sculpture has been Leading Nail Care since 1988, and created “the perfect professional product” that lasts up to 3 weeks and soaks off easily without damaging the natural nail.

Training is key to success and we offer training and ongoing support for all our technicians.

*Clinical trial and 5 Star Safety rating was awarded to Bio Sculpture Base Gel, Soft Gel and a selection of Bio Sculpture Colours Gels.

Bio Sculpture Gel has a collection of over 180 colours as well as new fashion-inspired collections twice a year so the choices are endless.

At Bio Sculpture, we understand that our product is only as good as the nail technicians who apply it. That is why we consider education and training as being of the utmost importance. All nail salons and technicians that use Bio Sculpture products have committed to and undergone the world-class Bio Sculpture Training Program, which ensures our product is used correctly and safely, and customers have a healthy and professional Bio Sculpture experience.

Suitable for beginners and experts, Bio Sculpture continuously produces award winning nail technicians globally.

Bio Sculpture cares about natural nail health. Developed using the highest quality ingredients, our treatment gels have unique flexible properties and are able to bend and flex with the nail’s natural movements, providing them with protection and allowing them to grow without breaking.

Nails can be lengthened, reinforced, repaired, extended and more, while the natural nail stays protected.

Treatments do not require dehydration prior to application. Bio Sculpture is gently applied with minimal buffing and does not require primers or bonders that dehydrate or damage the natural nail.

Bio Sculpture gels are quickly dried/cured under a Bio Sculpture UV or UV LED lamp.

Today, Bio Sculpture is still the world leader in healthy nail care
