Founders Chrissy and Jayla were struggling with acne, dry skin, and a slew of other issues. They were both modeling and traveling all the time, which started to take its toll on their skin and their health. At work, there were never any clean and filling snacks. At home, pills and creams weren’t doing the trick for getting their skin on track. That’s when they realized there was a void in both their snacking and beauty routines, which led them to come up with a first-of-its-kind snack. In their tiny NYC kitchen, they developed the recipe for Kalumi BEAUTYfood bars. The bars combine marine collagen with other beauty-boosting ingredients to keep you full, energized, and simplify your beauty routine. They work double-duty to provide an insanely delicious snack, but they also happen to be good for you and your skin. Kalumi BEAUTYfood was created with a specific purpose: to simplify beauty and provide a clean snack.
When it comes to skincare, whether you’re happy with your current routine or don’t even have one, the bars fit in perfectly. The ingredientes are formulated to help with fixing a variety of skin issues, while simultaneously fueling your body to get you through busy days. For those mornings when you need the extra 10 minutes of sleep, but don’t want to miss breakfast, just grab a bar and go. If you’re on your way to crush a workout but need an extra boost of energy, that’s where Kalumi BEAUTYfood comes in! Our bars are packed with clean, premium ingredients. The star of the show is our wild-caught marine collagen, which is ethically sourced. As we age, our natural collagen levels begin to decrease by around 1% per year. This decrease starts in your 20’s, which means anti-aging and beauty routines become increasingly important once we reach age 20. While it’s important to have a good skincare routine, what really matters is your internal health. Eating clean and supplementing is essential for building a strong foundation inside out. Taking collagen as a supplement can help many issues, with daily usage. The recommended daily dose is 12-15 grams, and staying consistent is key. Taking something daily, rather than once in a while, will allow the supplement to be more effective.
Marine collagen can help clear up your skin, improve elasticity, strengthen your joints and bones, and improve your gut health. Whether you have a specific issue you want to address, want glowing skin, or just want clean nutrients, marine collagen is for you. Each bar contains 8 grams of marine collagen, plus 11-13 grams of protein. Our other ingredients, like sweet potatoes (rich in beta carotene), cocoa butter & MCT oil (quality fats), actually work to support your natural production of collagen. The great thing about them is you can have them anytime, anywhere. Whether you need a meal replacement at lunch when you’re busy, or just a reliable and nourishing afternoon snack, they get the job done.You can have them for breakfast, or as pre and post workout snacks that can help strengthen your muscle mass. Another great thing about our Kalumi BEAUTYfood bars is how convenient they are. Use them instead of messy, gross-tasting powders and hard-to-swallow pills for an instant boost of energy and clean fuel for your body. Throw one in your purse, or keep a box at your desk. They come in four flavors: Lemon Love, Cocoa Crunch, and Sweetie Potato Pie. If you can’t decide which one to try, or just love all three, we even have a variety intro set that’s perfect for mixing and matching.
