Elmien Scholtz
Founder of Bio Sculpture Gel



It all begins with an idea.

As the original curable gel nail system, Bio Sculpture Gel has been tried, tested and proven. Bio Sculpture Gel is the ONLY nail system with a 5 STAR SAFETY RATING and is 100% Vegan.

The Bio Sculpture Gel System can be used to lengthen the natural nail, build Upper Arch support, Re-enforce the natural nail, build extended Sculptures, do Silk Repairs and create painstakingly beautiful nail art – including hand painting with Gel and more.

 Proud Winner of the Prestigious Madam Figaro Awards for ‘BEST NAIL PRODUCT OF THE YEAR’ for 2019 & 2020





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.”
Elmien Scholtz
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.. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.
