Hinged upon a special combination of science and a little dose of magic, the fabled story of La Mer began when aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered catastrophic burns in a laboratory accident, rather dissatisfied with the remedies available, he took matters into his own hands and set out on a journey of self-healing. Physicist by day, stargazer and dreamer by night, Dr. Max Huber looked to the oceans restorative abilities for inspiration in order to turn mishap into a miracle, twelve years and six thousand experiments later the "miracle broth" was born. The holiest of holy grails, the remarkable healing properties of this potent concoction is the stuff of beauty legend inspiring a certain amount of intrigue and curiosity, though shrouded in an air of mystique, the secret of this coveted elixir comes down to an exact science. Harnessing the powerful renewal energies of the sea (Crème de la Mer literally means "cream of the sea"), miracle broth is derived from a mix of antioxidant-rich sea kelp harvested off the pacific coast and an array of vitamins and minerals, citrus oil, eucalyptus, wheatgerm, alfalfa, sunflower, and lime tea extract. Though, like alchemy, the 'miracle broth' is more than the sum of its parts, the strength of this potent concoction lies in the precise scientific formula carried out at the Dr Max Huber Research Laboratories: in a meticulous bio-fermentation process that lasts over three months, ingredients are treated with the energy of light and sound waves (sonochemistry) which acts as a catalyst to speed up the chemical reactions that occur during fermentation, after which a morsel from the previous batch of cream is added before being hand-filled into each jar. Powerful as it is, miracle broth remains at the heart of all La Mer beauty products and cosmetics, it's exceptional moisturising capabilities are brought to the fore in an array of luxurious skincare and makeup products that comprise the La Mer regime, each is designed to hydrate and soothe the epidermis, cleanse and energise the complexion, and activate the skins transformative rejuvenation processes, promoting the advancement of youthful, healthy skin. A miracle you can believe in, La Mer is, quite naturally, the crème de la crème.
