Your Skincare Reimagined

Top 3 reasons why everyone is switching to BalmLabs.


It Really Works

The ClearBalm 3-Step Acne System is packed with plant-based active ingredients scientifically proven to clear breakouts, calm irritation and smooth fine lines without stripping chemicals like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.


Dermatologist Developed Formula

BalmLabs was co-founded by Dr. Robin Schaffran, an in-demand, Beverly Hills-based dermatologist who had become frustrated by the lack of innovation in products available to those suffering from adult acne. Together with her co-founder Sarah Waldock and a team of North America’s leading skincare scientists, they spent more than a year creating and perfecting the ClearBalm 3-Step Acne System.


Guaranteed Results

Within 30 days, we guarantee you’ll see fewer breakouts, improved texture and tone, and increased radiance (hello, Balm Glow). If you don’t, we’ll refund the product purchase price and send you a shipping label for a no hassle return — even if you’ve used every last drop in the bottle.


These BalmLabs products are made with 6 plant-based active ingredients scientifically proven to gently and effectively improve the look and feel of mature, acne-prone skin.

Hyaluronic Acid: It locks in moisture, creating a kind of force field around your skin barrier (a.k.a. your lipid barrier) that protects against dryness and fine lines.

Squalane: Protects the skin barrier from environmental irritants, moisturizing the outer layer and helping minimize an overabundance of sebum on the skin’s surface, while being so lightweight it barely leaves a trace.

Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3 that has been shown to reduce inflammation and the appearance of redness due to dryness. It helps renew the surface of the skin.

Natural AHAs: Alpha hydroxy acids (or AHAs) are found in plant-based substances like fruits and sugars, and act as gentle exfoliants on the skin. They promote cellular turnover by breaking down the glue that holds old skin cells together. This helps your skin feel smooth, keeps pores clear, and helps to even skin tone.

Bixa Orellana: A shrub typically found in South America that produces annatto seeds, which are rich in carotenoids (a powerful antioxidant). It has been shown to be a potent purifying and pore-refining agent; giving your skin a natural, sunny glow.

Hemp-derived CBD: The non-intoxicating component of the hemp sativa plant. Early research suggests it may have a calming effect on irritated skin. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Additionally, Bixa and CBD complement each other; working as a tag team to help rebalance hormonally-charged, stressed skin.

‍Traditional acne products strip excess oil using harsh actives like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.

Resilient teen skin can tolerate harsh actives and effectively clear breakouts while adult skin has a more fragile barrier and is more sensitive and dehydrated.

So in adult skin, harsh actives can actually exacerbate breakouts. Disrupting your skin barrier and further drying out already dehydrated skin can create an over-production of sebum. Which clogs pores and causes more acne. It’s a vicious cycle. Blast adult acne, cause more adult acne.

Clearer adult skin starts with a solution made for adult skin!

ClearBalm’s plant-powered, CLEAN formulas focus on rebalancing your skin, not stripping it of its natural oils. That means ZERO harsh or drying ingredients: NO salicylic acid, NO benzoyl peroxide, NO retinol.

I've suffered from adult acne for basically my entire adult life and nothing has helped me as this system has. It's so gentle but extremely effective! changed my skin so quickly and has kept it smooth and clear. I actually get so many compliments on my skin now and I've never had that before.

Jenna H.

I’ve been using the 3-Step System for several months now and it has seriously changed my skin. I don’t have as many breakouts, and if I do get any blemishes, these products help heal them. I’ve tried so many other products and nothing else comes close! I can’t recommend this enough.

Louis L.

This product worked as advertised and I’m beyond happy with the results. My face cleared up quickly plus any new breakouts are less frequent and severe.


I’ve had acne since I was 12. At 52, my skin is so much better! I’ve always had breakouts of various degrees. I can finally go out without makeup and feel ok!


Frequently Asked Questions

You got questions. We got answers.

Formulated by BalmLabs’ Chief Dermatologist, Dr. Robin Schaffran, using naturally derived extracts and plant-based ingredients, our 3-Step System is an award-winning acne solution designed for adult acne-prone skin. It cleanses and clarifies the skin without the use of harsh ingredients that can be irritating and overly drying. The system is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and gentle enough for all skin types. Dr. Schaffran recommends using the system for at least 30 days for optimal results.

Ready to meet the three steps? Here they are:

Step 1: Gentle Foam Cleanser
‍Step 2: Power Elixir
Step 3: Serum Hydrator

BALM’s products are fragrance-free, vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, PEG-free, and contain no artificial dyes — we like to say they have everything you need, and nothing you don’t!

It’s tough trying new products when you’ve been disappointed in the past. When it comes to minimizing breakouts, having a consistent product routine and giving it enough time to work is key.

A few things Dr. Robin Schaffran, BalmLabs’ Chief Dermatologist, recommends when starting a new routine:

  • Use a fresh face towel daily to dry your face.
  • Change your pillowcase every other day.
  • Wash your hair often.
  • If you wear a mask or facial covering, make sure you wash it daily.
  • If you have naturally oily skin, use our Serum Hydrator sparingly, starting with once a day or as required on dry areas only during the initial phase.
  • Most importantly, try not to touch your face during the day.

The 3-Step System loves your skin in three different ways: cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration. Each product in the system is there for a reason, with purposeful formulation in mind. While each one is effective on its own, for best results, use all three products together.

The Gentle Foam Cleanser effectively eliminates pore-clogging oil, dirt and make-up, leaving skin refreshed and nourished, not stripped.

The Power Elixir is a liquid exfoliant that gently revitalizes uneven skin tone and texture, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

The Serum Hydrator provides lightweight hydration while soothing irritation, calming redness and smoothing fine lines.

Our MANTRA Labs CHRONO Bundle is an easy and effective solution to nurture those natural bio-rhythms and maximize our human potential during every phase of the day and night.

ClearBalm is designed for adult acne-prone skin, but is suitable for all adult skin types.

ClearBalm is effective for all types of acne, from hormonal to cystic, to nodular. We do, however, suggest that you consult with a dermatologist or a physician for advanced cases of hormonal, cystic or nodular acne. Send us an email at if you’re not sure.

Yes! ClearBalm was formulated exclusively looking to ingredients that have been proven to be safe and effective on all skin tones, including melanin-rich skin tones.

We recommend using ClearBalm twice daily — in the morning and in the evening — to produce optimal results.

We believe in purposeful formation, meaning our products contain everything you need, and nothing that you don’t. ClearBalm uses six plant-derived actives to banish breakouts and nourish the skin:
Hyaluronic acid: Locks in moisture.
Squalane: Balances oil production.
‍**Niacinamide:Reduces the appearance of redness.
Natural AHAs: Smoothes and brightens.
Bixa Orellana seed extract:
Banishes blemishes.
Full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD: **Reduces inflammation.

Gentle Foam Cleanser: Apply 1-2 pumps in the morning and evening using upward circular motions. The amount of product should be about the size of a silver dollar. Rinse with warm water.

Power Elixir: Apply a nickel-sized amount to your face in the morning and evening using your fingertips or a cotton round, avoiding the eye area. Allow to dry completely before moving on to Step 3.

Serum Hydrator: A little goes a long way with our serum. Apply sparingly (think the size of a dime) to your face in the morning and evening using your fingertips. Allow to dry before applying moisturizer, sunscreen, or makeup.

ClearBalm was designed to be all you need, but its gentle formula means it plays well with others.

Two of our products contain Hemp-derived CBD. (but zero THC!) Some people are comfortable using CBD while pregnant or breastfeeding, and some aren’t. We believe it is a personal choice between you and your doctor, and we recommend speaking with your OBGYN before starting to use BALM products.

ClearBalm is designed for adult acne-prone skin. However, it can be effective for teenage skin as well, particularly for individuals who have highly sensitive or dry skin.

It does! ClearBalm is designed for adult skin, no matter the gender. In fact, we have plenty of customers who let us know just how much their partners, brothers, and sons swear by the 3-Step System for their acne needs.

Everyone’s skin is different and the time may vary, but generally, it takes at least 30 days of daily use to start seeing results from ClearBalm. Our chief dermatologist, Dr. Schaffran, stresses the importance of sticking with a consistent routine, as far too many people give up on products before they have a chance to begin working.

“Purging” – or breaking out – is not a common occurrence when using BalmLabs products. That said, purging has been found to occur in 2 – 3 % of people when introducing new acne treatments into their routine. Ultimately, purging is truly a deep clean of your pores; the active ingredients may bring oil, dirt and debris up to the surface to reset the skin. The most important thing to remember if you do experience purging is to try and push through it because it will indeed pass. The small percentage of people who have experienced some purging and pushed through it report that they end up with a renewed clear and radiant baseline.

Yes, ClearBalm is suitable for all skin types. For skin that does not have acne, the 3-Step System can help to brighten and smooth your complexion with the help of our six plant-powered actives.
