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.
The Ritual: The Miracle Broth™ in Crème de la Mer is suspended in an extraordinary formula. The secret to activating its renewing power and enjoying its profound benefits lies in a soothing ritual. Crème de la Mer must be warmed for a few seconds between the fingers until it becomes translucent, then pressed gently into the skin.
