HUM offers beauty inside and out

To celebrate the launch of Interbrand’s Breakthrough Brands report, InterbrandHealth spoke with a number of health and wellness brands that have changed the market in an effort to disrupt the traditional healthcare ecosystem.

Could those pretty bottles in Sephora contain the key to clear skin, luxurious hair and weight loss? As consumers look for more products to address their holistic health and wellness concerns, demonstrating alternate benefits of nutrition may be the key to engaging new markets.

HUM Nutrition offers consumers an easy approach to beauty-based nutrition. Its products are formulated to address common beauty and lifestyle challenges through compound vitamin and mineral blends. The brand’s website allows you to customize your “cocktail” for the results you’re looking for and solves the ubiquitous education challenge in this space by connecting consumers with access to a personal nutritionist.

We talked with CEO Walter Faulstroh to learn more about the brand.
