LA MER’S SECRET OF THE SEA
La Mer’s journey began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in a lab accident and was inspired to create his own destiny. Aerospace Physicist by day, stargazer 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 burned skin.
ONE PLACE IN THE WORLD
In the pristine waters off of Vancouver Island, La Mer hand-harvests 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 La Mer’s “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 the original Miracle Broth. At the heart of every La Mer product today, Miracle Broth is as essential to Crème de la Mer as the sea itself.
ART OF FERMENTATION
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.
La Mer’s 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.
