The Secret to La Mer - My Miracle in a jar
If by miracles we mean those unique events which appear to be unexplainable according to the laws of nature, then Crème de La Mer, introduced in 1965, is certainly an extraordinary happening, as extraordinary as the story of its birth”.
How the Miracle started Years ago, Dr Max Huber, an aerospace physicist with NASA, sustained a terrible laboratory accident that provoked very serious burns to the face and neck.. Neither science nor medicine could offer him the hoped-for help, so he decided to help himself using his profound knowledge of the sea and nature. Twelve years and six thousand experiments later, Dr Huber noticed that his skin was softer, smoother and suppler and he personally filled the first jar of Crème de la Mer.Huber had invented Miracle Broth, a super-concentrated distillate that needs three to four months’ fermentation to transform the single elements into spontaneous vital energy.
The Ingredients. Fresh Sea Kelp from the Pacific Ocean, a key ingredient, is combined with seaweed, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, vitamins C, D, E and B12 and citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower oils. When seaweeds and vitamins are associated, they produce micro-nutrients that give energy to the skin. The miracle was not in the ingredients selected so much as the way in which they were worked together: the bio-fermentation generated a nutritious rich “broth” through a long cold process that preserved and reinforced the integrity of its organic components.
Pure Energized Water? Dr Huber had also understood that all of life is fundamentally connected to pure energized water, and that the cells, fed and stimulated into renewing themselves day after day, guarantee the skin a luminous and transparent texture. From this principle came the Deconstructed Waters, waters, in fact, laden with minerals, and then ‘de-structured’ with an electric charge and transformed into bundles of energy that emphasized the essential and nutrient function of the water itself. The Deconstructed Waters therefore acted like a generator and increased the energy and efficacy of the ingredients dispersed in them, helping to control what was supplied around the cells and also what was absorbed.
The Eye Balm is part of the La Mer Face Care series. It's an intensive treatments for around the eyes and nose area. Lenitive and refreshing essence, the eye balm associates a concentration three times higher of the original broth with luminescent Brazilian malachite, which brings energy and translucence to the area around the eyes, while the marine extracts reduce the bags under the eyes. No surprise therefore that those who have tried everything stick tenaciously to the La Mer products.
Here's a toast to La Mer and it's unexpected and surprising beauty, for all the rest of your life! Using La Mer always puts me in the classic romantic-glamorous notion. Could it be really the miracle in a jar? Try it out yourself
