MORE ABOUT EVO OXYGENATING GEL – THE FAST LINE GEL POLISH

Evo Oxygenating Gel was developed from the base up, to provide the best combination of performance and safety. It contains no organic solvents, formaldehyde, DBP or Camphor, and Evo Base is infused with Vitamin A and Vitamin E. These Vitamins migrate to the natural nail after curing. Its long chain length polyurethane backbone was selected specifically to provide the flexibility and toughness necessary for product performance as well as to provide better water vapour permeation after curing.

EVO OXYGENATING GEL – REVOLUTIONARY BASE

A balance of oxygen and moisture vapour is essential to keep nails healthy. When a nail is covered by artificial product, it can be vulnerable to dehydration and bacterial and fungal infection. Keratin, which makes up the majority of the nail, allows the transmission of oxygen and water vapour to nourish the skin and kill anaerobic bacteria.

Evo Oxygenating Base is optimised to mimic this process by facilitating the exchange of oxygen and water vapour. Even though H2O is a larger molecule than O2, it is much smaller than the larger gaps in the cured Gel’s microscopic structure, allowing water vapour molecules to migrate through to the natural nail surface.

Our Gels DO NOT contain the chemicals that damage the nails that can be found in many other products. The gels are 5FREE, free of harmful chemicals

1. DBP (DIBUTYL PHTHALATE)

Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), a member of the phthalate family of chemicals, is used in nail polish to minimize chipping. Phthalates are classified as endocrine disruptors and mimic the hormone estrogen in your body. They are proven to impair the hormonal development of male fetuses, cause organ damage, and may even instigate early-onset menopause.

2. TOLUENE

Toluene is the nail polish ingredient used to create a smooth application and finish. It has a sweet, pungent smell and is also found in most conventional nail polish removers. However, its fumes are highly toxic; studies have shown that exposure to toluene can cause neurological damage, decreased brain function, impaired breathing, hearing loss, and nausea. When inhaled too frequently by pregnant women, it may result in impaired fetal development. Animal studies have also shown that toluene is linked to reproductive impairment, immune system toxicity, and blood cancers like malignant lymphoma.

3. FORMALDEHYDE

Formaldehyde is used to harden and strengthen nail polishes, also serving as a preservative that protects against bacterial growth. Formaldehyde is naturally produced by the body in incredibly small amounts—similar to the concentration found in some vaccines. At this low level, formaldehyde is not dangerous.

4. FORMALDEHYDE RESIN

Formaldehyde resin is a by-product of formaldehyde that makes its way into many nail polish formulas that include formaldehyde. It has been the subject of fewer human tests than the other four chemicals. However, preliminary studies show that can cause severe skin irritation and allergic reactions, skin depigmentation and loss of nerve sensation.

5. CAMPHOR

Camphor is the ingredient used to give conventional nail polishes their glossy, shiny appearance. It is less toxic than the first three ingredients listed above, and is sometimes used in cold remedies such as vapor rubs and nasal sprays.

 

We know how important our clients are and how they feel about animal testing and share in the same philosophy- OUR PRODUCTS ARE ANIMAL CRUELTY FREE

We are also proud to announce that our gels are also VEGAN

BIO SCULPTURE QUESTIONS

What is Bio Sculpture Gel?

Bio Sculpture Gel is a one-step system that strengthens and promotes the growth of natural nails. It is applied onto a natural nail, tip or gel extension. Bio Sculpture Gel cures under a UV light, leaving the nail strong but flexible with a natural glossy or high shine finish.

What is Bio Sculpture Color Gel?

Bio Sculpture Color Gel is clear gel with pre-blended color pigment added to create No Chip nail colors. Color gel looks and applies like nail polish but gives incredible strength. The color gel will last for weeks without fading, chipping or wearing away at the free edge.

Is Bio Sculpture Gel a Soak Off gel?

Yes, All of Bio Sculpture’s Treatment Gels and Color Gels are soak off. All Gel soaks off in as little as 10-20 minutes or 5 minutes per layer.

Can Bio Sculpture Gel be applied to the natural nail?

Yes, Bio Sculpture Gel is known as the natural nail gel and can be applied directly onto natural nails without the use of primers or bonders.

Is Bio Sculpture Color Gel similar to other “Soak Off Color Gel Lacquers”?

No… Color Gel “lacquers/polishes” is not a true gel and does not give any strength to the natural nails. It is merely a longer lasting nail color lacquer/polish that is light cured. If a client’s nails are thin, weak or need extra strength color gel lacquers will have to be used in combination with a nail system to strengthen the nail. Bio Sculpture Color Gel offers strength and No Chip nail color with one application.

Can I build a gel nail extension using Bio Sculpture Gel?

Beautiful, natural looking, flexible but strong gel nail extensions can be created using Bio Sculpture Sculpting Gel. Solid (less-flexible) sculptures can be created with Bio Sculpture Free-Edge Gel. Gel nail extensions can be created with either a paper form or our easy Free-Form gel extension methods. Bio Sculpture Gel nail extensions will not crack, tear or splinter and are great for nail biters.

Will Bio Sculpture crack or splinter?

No, Bio Sculpture Gel will not crack or splinter due to its flexibility. Not using Bio Sculpture Gel or Bio Sculpture Top Coat as a last layer, but an alternative polish top coat or color polish that contains formaldehyde may cause the surface of the gel to be dehydrated causing small hairline cracks. These cracks will disappear when you do your next fill. “Compare it with a cloth that is flexible. If the cloth is bent it will not break or tear but if glue is spilled on the cloth and left to dry the cloth will crack or even tear.”

How can I convert my traditional acrylic clients over to gel?

This should not be difficult. Start using Bio Sculpture Gel when your client needs her next fill. If you see that your client’s natural nail is thin and damaged due to the use of damaging products, explain how Bio Sculpture Gel is and will not damage their natural nails. We suggest that you thin down the existing product on the nail, then do a conventional gel fill with Bio Sculpture and wean off the unwanted product over time.

Is Bio Sculpture suitable for hairdressers who have their hands in water a lot?

Bio Sculpture Gel will not be affected or damaged by water. Many hairdressers have their nails done with Bio Sculpture Gel because it is strong and will not stain when S-Gel or UV-Gel Coat is used as a last layer. It is highly recommended that they do Home After-Care regularly and wear gloves when working with chemicals.

How do I change my nail color if I have gel on my nails?

Bio Sculpture Gel offers Nail Polishes to match 100 of our 170 gel colors. For a temporary color change simply apply a layer of your chosen nail polish color over your gel application. Remove the polish the next day or a few days later to return to your original gel color.
