How Did It Begin?
The Secret of the Sea
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.
Timing Is Everything
Dr. Huber observed that the lunar cycles and tides affect the renewal rate of natural sea kelp. 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 keep its nutrients optimized.
Unlocking the Miracle
Dr. 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, with each one of his 6,000+ experiments bringing him closer to the discovery of a lifetime.
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™.
