The story of La Mer is one of hope, healing, and a scientist’s deep respect for the power of the sea.
The La Mer journey began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in an experiment gone awry. Scientist by day, stargazer and dreamer by night, he sought to unlock the legendary healing powers of the sea.
Dr. Huber was inspired by marine life, especially the extraordinary self-regenerating powers of sea kelp. Over 12 years and nearly 6,000 experiments, he invented an elixir made from fermented marine ingredients that soothed his skin. This cell-renewing elixir is called Miracle Broth™—and Dr. Huber’s recipe continues to power La Mer products today.
