About Us

Founded in 2017, CLEARSTEM Skincare was created by two passionate women, Danielle Gronich and Kayleigh Christina, to offer clean skincare and haircare products with zero pore-clogging ingredients for acne-prone and sensitive skin, while also preventing premature aging.

Danielle Gronich is a Licensed Clinical Esthetician and the founder of the San Diego Acne Clinic. With over a decade of personal experience battling cystic acne, Danielle has dedicated her career to empowering others to heal their skin from within. Her expertise and compassionate approach have earned her the title of The Acne Guru, achieving a remarkable 98% success rate in clearing her patients' skin across all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Among her success stories is Kayleigh Christina, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist who also struggled with cystic acne. Through Danielle's holistic approach, Kayleigh achieved lasting clarity.

Their shared passion for holistic health and clinical research revealed the harsh truths of conventional skincare—most acne products contain toxic, hormone-disrupting ingredients, while anti-aging products are often filled with pore-clogging fillers. Determined to offer a safer, more effective solution, Danielle and Kayleigh created CLEARSTEM Skincare.

CLEARSTEM is the first clean brand to target both acne and aging simultaneously. Our innovative, award-winning products are formulated to help you achieve clear, youthful skin without harmful irritants or pore-clogging ingredients. Ready to eliminate breakouts and prevent premature aging? CLEARSTEM is your ultimate holistic solution.
