The story of La Mer is one of hope, healing, and one man’s
deep respect for the power of the living sea.
OUR SECRET OF THE SEA
Our journey began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns
in a lab accident and was inspired to create his own destiny.
Aerospace Physicist by day, star-gazer and dreamer by night,
he hoped to unlock the legendary healing powers of the sea he held so dear.
6,000 experiments and 12 years of searching led to the epiphany
of a lifetime – a fermentation process that transformed sea kelp
and other pure ingredients into Miracle Broth™. This cell-renewing elixir
at the heart of Crème de la Mer would finally transform the look of his skin.
THE ART OF
Fermentation is an art that works like alchemy. Individual ingredients
can undergo a metabolic process that transforms them into micronutrients
that the skin can more readily recognize and receive. Our signature
fermentation process takes 3 to 4 months and uses light and sound energy
to enhance the activity of sea kelp, vitamins, minerals and other
pure ingredients, creating a whole far greater than the sum of its parts.
ONE PLACE IN THE WORLD
In the pristine waters off of Vancouver Island, we hand-harvest the kelp in
an effort to help support its sustainability for generations to come.
One of the fastest growing plants in the world, with exceptional self-regenerating
powers, Giant Sea Kelp is at the heart of the Miracle Broth.
Each time the Miracle Broth is created, it is infused with drops of the batch
that came before it, creating a timeless link to our original. At the heart
of every La Mer product today, Miracle Broth is as essential
to Crème de la Mer as the sea itself.
