“There's this huge market for people that have dual skin concerns, and nothing that addresses it,” shares Kayleigh Clark, co-founder of CLEARstem, a skincare company that combines anti-aging and anti-acne solutions into one product line while also providing skincare education. In today’s episode, host Christi Lukasiak is joined in conversation with both co-founders of CLEARstem, Kayleigh Clark and Danielle Gronich, to talk about the combination of acne and aging concerns that many adults struggle with. Acne doesn't just go away when you get older. Unfortunately, many anti-aging products include pore clogging ingredients that trigger breakouts and many acne products are too harsh and leave behind scars. Danielle and Kayleigh created CLEARstem because they saw that there was a need for products that would combine anti-aging properties with ingredients that were safe for acne-prone skin and would also help clear up existing breakouts and scars. With Danielle’s experience running her acne clinic and Kayleigh’s experience as a nutritionist, together they set out to design a skincare line and education platform that empowers people to regain control over their skin.
