About Us

CLEARSTEM Skincare was founded in 2017 by two women, Danielle Gronich & Kayleigh Christina. Danielle is a Licensed Clinical Esthetician and the founder of San Diego Acne Clinic, where she channeled her own 10+ year experience with cystic acne to empower others to heal their skin from within. Working with thousands of people across all ages and ethnic backgrounds, Danielle quickly earned her reputation as The Acne Guru™ and achieved a 98% success rate in clearing patients’ skin. One of these patients was Kayleigh Christina, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist who suffered her own bout of cystic acne in her mid-twenties and finally got clear through Danielle’s comprehensive, whole-body approach to skin wellness. Connecting over their mutual passion for holistic health, the two dove into the clinical research together to uncover the nasty truth about conventional skincare for acne + aging: most acne products contain toxic, hormone disrupting ingredients, while products that target aging are full of pore-clogging fillers. Determined to deliver a safer, more effective alternative to traditional skincare, Kayleigh + Danielle joined forces to formulate CLEARSTEM - the first toxin-free brand that targets both acne + aging at the same time. There’s a reason that CLEARSTEM’s all-star lineup keeps winning award after award. If you’re ready to get rid of breakouts and prevent premature aging - without the toxic skin irritants + pore-clogging ingredients - then CLEARSTEM is for you!

Kayleigh's journey into the world of clean skincare began when she experienced numerous health issues, including a breast tumor and severe cystic acne, in her mid-twenties. Despite consulting with various doctors, dermatologists, and skin specialists, Kayleigh couldn't find a solution to clear her skin. It was through her own initiative that she discovered San Diego Acne Clinic and met Danielle Gronich, The Acne Guru™ and owner of the clinic. Under Danielle's guidance, using a comprehensive, whole-body approach to skin wellness, Kayleigh was able to clear her skin.
