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

One Problem......she couldn’t find any premium quality nail care products that didn’t 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”
