One thing that strucks you, when you hear about the Aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber, who fifty years ago began to create what is now the dream cream of all women aged 20 and older, is the determination. The creation is actually all part of a drama, an explosion in the laboratory and severe burns burns after that. Not being able to find a solution neither medical nor scientific to his problem. Dr.Huber had to research a solution himself. After more than 6000 failed experiments, thes research resulted in the creation of a cream which helped him partially heal the burned skin and soothe his skin. This is how the so called 'Miarcle Broth' was created.
In California, near the Bay of San Diego grows in fact a seaweed that if cut and macerated produces a special sea kelp, which makes the base of the Miracle Broth. This seaweed is the secret of the success and the evergrowing myth of Creme de La Mer. Dr. Huber didn't live long enough to see his discover become a beauty product, he died in 1991 while Creme de La Mer was launched in 2000.
Even nowadays very strict rules apply in the design of the cream, this to ensure that each vessel placed in the market has the same composition as the original miracle broth created by Huber himself.
The Miracle Broth
- Is the result of the fermentation process and the handling of fresh algae that are brought from California to the Huber Research Labs on the east coast. This fermentation has a variable duration, about 3 to 4 months, and is monitored daily just to assure it goes to the next step at the right time.
- The properties of the Miracle Broth are greater than the sum of the ingredients it is made of.
- La Creme de La Mer is almost free of preservatives, and the few that are present make it possibile the extension of the use the cream from the usual 6-12 months to 24 months.

How to Apply It
A detail not to be overlooked when you have a product that becomes your beauty ritual is the right application. Creme De La Mer needs to be put on the tips of the fingers and warmed up to activate the ingredients. After that pat the face into pressiong moves.When warming the cream you can see how the texture color changes from white to transparent. The Creme De La Mer texture is very rich, that's why the application following these steps is very very important.
A new texture
For those, who don't want to give up to the classical cream texture and application La Mer has just launched a new version named La Mer Moisturizing Cream Soft. As you can guess from the name, the new version has a light, perfect for those who love the lightweight feel on the skin. Thanks to the Moisturizing Spheres, an advanced absorption technique, this new variation of Creme de La Mer penetrates deep, restoring skin hydration. The effects are equal to the classic La Mer texture, with the skin being renewed and it appears more radiant.
Important Note: Everyone has differerent skin and skin problems. That is why buying a cream just because it is written on a magazine that it makes 'miracles' won't solve any of your skin issues. I'm really satisfied with the Creme De La Mer results, but this doesn't mean you'll have the same effects. Since Estée Lauder has acquired the brand, a whole range of products has been developed, all containing the Miracle Broth. Some of you might need the ultra rich cream, some might get better results with the soft cream, while for others there is the ultra-light lotion and gel. For those who want to work on their wrinkles there are other La Mer products available. To each its own.
