La Mer creates luxury, high-performance skin care and makeup by harnessing the power of the sea. In the 1960s, aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber set out to help heal the appearance of scars he suffered in a lab accident. Pioneering the use of sea kelp and bio-fermentation in skin care, he created Miracle Broth™—the elixir that powers the legendary Crème de la Mer.

The story of skin care company La Mer begins in the 1960s when physicist Max Huber invented a formula to treat his own facial scars—results of a lab accident. Huber's experimentation with fermented sea kelp resulted in Miracle Broth, the restorative ingredient found in the brand's famed Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream. Beyond the original Crème de la Mer and the equally popular The Moisturizing Soft Cream (both superstars in the universe of moisturizers), the La Mer skin care line includes La Mer The Concentrate—a calming elixir that earned the nickname "liquid silk"—and two specialty eye creams: The Eye Concentrate and The Eye Balm Intense. The brand's devotees also adore La Mer foundations: luxurious makeup offered in liquid, powder and cream formulations. You'll always find the latest from La Mer at Nordstrom—and be sure to watch for La Mer gift sets and gift-with-purchase offers. They're an ideal way to introduce someone (including your own deserving self!) to the transformative magic of La Mer.
