In 1988 Elmien Scholtz introduced the first ever UV Curing, Soak-able, Colour Nail-Gel to the world – Bio Sculpture Gel (Pty) Ltd – A non-chip salon treatment that cures to a strong and flexible, glossy finish that strengthens and protects the natural nail with colour that lasts for weeks. Today, Bio Sculpture Gel is still the world leader in healthy nail care.

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

Founder of Bio Sculpture Gel


As the LEADER IN HEALTHY NAIL CARE, not only has Bio Sculpture Gel been winning multiple international awards over the years, the system continuously produces award winning nail technicians all over the world.


Bio Sculpture Gel was never planned to become a well-known international brand. Since childhood, Elmien was fascinated by beautiful nails. This fascination became her passion.

She studied at the CIDESCO Beauty Academy in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. After completing her studies, Elmien opened her first salon in Cape Town and later in Port Elizabeth but she couldn’t find any premium quality nail care products.

She continued her studies in the USA by attending training in artificial nail systems in California. 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. She got married to Dr Carl Scholtz who encouraged and supported her during the development of “the perfect professional product” for nail care.

Her goal was not only set on beauty but also on Health & Safety and to protect the environment. By consulting with the best scientists in their respective fields and applying the latest technologies available, Bio Sculpture Gel was registered… a humble beginning, born from passion, perseverance, courage, dedication, hard work and the faith of a true pioneer.

Today the Bio Sculpture head office is situated in the heart of South Africa in the small town of Clocolan. Surrounded by the breathtaking African landscape and wild life, one truly experiences the wonder of tranquility and peace when visiting here. The 3000sqm ultra-modern factory is an environmentally friendly building that climatises air flow, makes use of natural lighting and self-supportive water storage.

The factory is ISO 22716 certified for Good Manufacturing Practices and is managed under ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems, annually audited by the SABS and the SGS. Here everyone who visits the site is welcomed by the warm-hearted Bio Sculpture family. This is where the internationally recognised, award winning nail brand of Bio Sculpture calls home, and this is where all the magic happens.


Bio Sculpture Gel is the only nail system with a 5 STAR SAFETY RATING, offering over 170 UV/LED curable colours available that soak off easily, leaving the natural nail healthy and undamaged.

Bio Sculpture Gel has a variety of different Treatment Gels that will protect and enhance natural nails, including a high viscosity Base Gel, a variety of Strengthening Gels, Sculpting Gels and Building Gels. Gloss Gel is a scratch resistant, high-gloss final layer to finish all Gel treatments.

With Bio Sculpture Base Gel and Soft Gels applied to the natural free edge, brittle/flaky nails can be restored. Ripped or split nails can be repaired by securing the tear with silk and Bio Sculpture Base Gel, followed by a Gel overlay of choice.

Short and broken nails can easily be lengthened to strong, natural looking nails by using a nail form and Free-Edge Gel.

Even severely bitten nails can be lengthened successfully by using silk and Bio Sculpture Base Gel on a Nail Form, followed by a Gel overlay of choice.

Strengthening weak nails or supporting long nails (depending on nail analysis), can be done by building an Upper Arch or applying a layer of the appropriate Bio Sculpture Strengthening Gel for a durable, yet flexible end result.

A flat, scooped or corrugated nail surface can be corrected by using the appropriate Bio Sculpture Strengthening Gel to build a perfect Upper Arch.

Bio Sculpture Gel, the proven leader in all categories:
* Appearance * Health * Durability * Simplicity * Ease of removal
Just like skin and hair, our nails are unique and should be treated according to their individual condition and type. Bio Sculpture is the only nail care system to offer Gel treatments that specifically match your nails, ensuring a long lasting, healthy result that suits you and your lifestyle.

Bio Sculpture Gel has a tailored nail care solution suitable for ANY NAIL TYPE. In order to provide the correct treatment, it is important for the nail technician to understand nail terminology, nail types and conditions, the client’s lifestyle and activities, master application techniques and much more – therefore, training and education is key.

Bio Sculpture Gel is the only nail care system where knowledge gained during training can be implemented by equipping the nail technician with a complete spectrum of appropriate Gels in order to treat any nail type and non-medical condition successfully.
