THEY SAY IT'S MORE EFFECTIVE TO SHOW THAN TO TELL
Bio Sculpture has done a scientific research study to assess the efficacy and tolerability
of UV Light cured gel (Bio Sculpture) - 02 August 2004
Bio Sculpture Gel is to our knowledge the first UV cured nail gel that has undergone
and passed this stringent test.
Tested to the Highest Standards
A clinical trial was conducted to assess the tolerability and efficacy of Bio Sculpture® UV light-cured nail gel in first-time and
Twenty-five (25) sites participated in the trial and more than 500 volunteers were entered into the study. The 6-month evaluation
period comprised of not only volunteers that have been exposed to the product over a long period, but also those with no previous
exposure. Generally if paronychia were to appear on any nail treated with a nail system it would take approximately 6 months to
show, according to scientific data. Therefore, the evaluation period for Bio Sculpture Gel was adjusted accordingly for both
first-time and long-term users to encompass the 6-month time period. Data for both the evaluation and statistical analysis were
collected by means of questionnaires and physical examinations at bi-monthly intervals (three visits) for short term users.
Participants were tested for paronychia and contact dermatitis. The research results showed that one hundred percent (100%) of
first-time users, and ninety nine percent (99%) of long-term users, reported no paronychia or contact dermatitis.
Five- Star Safety Rating - Tested to the Highest Standards
The research result showed that one hundred percent (100%) of first-time users,
and ninety nine percent (99%) of long-term users, reported no paronychia or contact
dermatitis. Consequently, the conclusion is drawn that Bio Sculpture® UV light-cured
nail gel is both highly effective and tolerable for use as cosmetic nail gel.

UV-Light curable gel for nails
Bio Sculpture UV-light curable nail gel provides an almost instantaneous binding
and curing of the nail gel-coat due to cross-linking of polymers induced by ultraviolet
light. Once cured, it leaves the nail hard, yet flexible, with a natural glossy
The product is odorless and fume-free and is thought to be the first color nail
gel on the market. This innovative product from Clocolan, South Africa, is exported
to some 20 countries.
One of the cosmetics industry's goals is labeling products as "hypoallergenic".
Although the term may have considerable market value in promoting products to consumers,
there is, according to the FDA, no such thing as a "non-allergenic” cosmetic (see
www.cfsan.fda.gov). However, Bio Sculpture International's nail gel has been tested
on 500 volunteers over a six month period by a pharmaceutical research organization
and the research shows that neither first-time users, nor 99% of long-term users
experience contact dermatitis. This is because Bio Sculpture nail gel is applied
without the use of primers and bonders which minimizes allergic reactions.

Summary Quote: "We are of the opinion that this product, when applied under normal
or reasonable foreseeable conditions of use, poses virtually no risk for systemic
toxicity, although it does pose a limited risk for local skin reaction in sensitive
users, which can be minimized by the correct usage. In general the toxicology profile
of the ingredients of the product compares very favorably with that of some of the
other nail cosmetic products on the market."
