about la mer
More than forty years ago, a routine lab experiment exploded in aerospace physicist Max Huber's face, leaving him with severe chemical burns. Frustrated by the few remedies available, Dr. Huber went back into his lab, and twelve years and some 6,000 experiments later, Crème de La Mer was born. Its marine-based Miracle Broth™, distilled through a months-long process, is the secret to the Crème's skin-perfecting success. La Mer now boasts an entire line of age-erasing elixirs, and has become a luxe legend everywhere from Fire Island to Fiji.
