The story of La Mer is one of hope, healing and one man’s deep respect for the power of the living sea. It all began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in an experiment gone awry and set out to create his own destiny. Physicist by day, stargazer and dreamer by night, he hoped to unlock the healing power of the sea he held so dear. Inspired by the oceanic world, Huber fermented nutrient-rich sea kelp with other natural ingredients. 12 years and 6,000 experiments later, the skin-renewing Miracle Broth and Iconic Crème de la Mer were born.
