Rene Lipsitz, founder of Bio Sculpture Gel UK, passed away last month among family and friends following a long battle with breast cancer.
As a key player in the nail industry, she brought the soak-off gel brand over from South Africa in 1999, introducing British techs to its high-tech formulations and effectively revolutionising traditional manicures and pedicures.
Lipsitz was also an ambassador and fundraiser for several charities including the Caroline’s Campaign and donated much-needed funding to a primary school located near Bio Sculpture’s global headquarters. Her son, Richard Lipsitz, will now take over as the company’s managing director.
