La Mer begins with aerospace physicist, Dr. Max Huber. While working in his lab in San Diego, Dr. Huber accidentally suffered burns during an experiment. The treatments available at the time could not heal his skin, which sent him on a journey to create his own treatment. After 12 years and 6,000 experiments, he discovered Miracle Broth, La Mer’s hero ingredient. He fermented Giant Sea Kelp with vitamins and precious ingredients for 3-4 months, resulting in an enhanced energy source that acts as a powerful catalyst for the skin’s renewal. This cell-renewing elixir at the heart of Crème de la Mer would transform the look of his skin.
