La Mer began as a personal quest for NASA physicist Dr. Max Huber, to transform the look of his skin after suffering chemical burns in a laboratory accident.
With a firm belief that the oceans held the key with it’s limitless resources, he developed the signature product, Crème de la Mer. With it’s potent nourishing qualities and ability to regenerate, Dr. Huber used fermented kelp, harvesting the power of the sea, amongst other natural ingredients and processes to develop the brands key ingredient, Miracle Broth, which can be found in each of La Mer’s products.
The brand has since become a member of the Estée Lauder group of brands.
Today, La Mer’s range of products have expanded to include a full range of moisturising creams and lotions, serums, oils, and tonics, for face and body, as well as cosmetics, foundation, powder, concealers, and make-up accessories.
