The CV joint boot is leaking out its lubricant grease. This is most commonly caused by a joint rubber boot is cracked or torn and also the clamps that hold the boots in place can be loose or out of position. Have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check thegrease leaking from the CV axle. If the axle is found to have a broken boot then the mechanic can replace CV boot or axle.
