A gifted scientist, the miraculous golden elixir, and the legendary Crème that immerses skin in healing moisture.
How Did It Begin?
The Secret of The Sea
"I heard the ocean holds the secret."
When La Mer's founder, Dr. Max Huber, suffered burns in a lab accident, he was convinced the regenerative properties of the sea might hold the key to improving the look of his skin. He found the answer in the pristine waters of a nutrient-rich kelp forest in the Pacific.
"The harvest is determined by the moon and tides."
Timing is everything. Dr. Huber observed that lunar cycles and tides affect the renewal rate of natural sea kelp.
"Sea kelp is sustainably sourced from only one place in the world."
In the marine-protected waters off the coast of Vancouver, La Mer's sea kelp is hand harvested twice a year, placed on ice and rushed to the La Mer labs to help keep its nutrients optimized.
How Is It Made?
Unlocking the Miracle
"I heard it took 12 years and over 6,000 experiments."
Max Huber experimented with a slow-craft fermentation process, combining Pacific sea kelp with vitamins and other natural ingredients. He devoted 12 years to perfecting his Crème - each one of his 6,000+ experiments bringing him closer to the discovery of a lifetime.
"I heard they play sound waves to each batch."
When Dr. Huber exposed the fermenting marine nutrients to light and sound waves, the extraordinary transformation of natural sea kelp, vitamins and other pure ingredients became something far more powerful: the miraculous skin-soother he named Miracle Broth™
