The story of the Miracle Broth™ and the legendary Crème de la Mer is one of hope and perseverance, meticulous science and the restorative powers of the sea. It is a story of daily transformation, soothing rituals and profound healing that began with an accident and ended with a miracle. Half a century ago, aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in a laboratory accident. Neither medicine nor science offered the benefits Huber desperately sought, and he began a personal quest to transform the look of his skin. 12 years passed. 6,000 experiments were conducted. Finally, he perfected the precious, nurturing Miracle Broth™, the soul of the cream that renewed and helped restore his skin.

Dr. Huber believed the sea was a miraculous resource and sea kelp, with its endless ability to regenerate itself, its nourishing properties and the powerful way it retained moisture, held promise and hope. Then as now, the kelp was hand-harvested and fermented gently with simple, pure ingredients: calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, vitamins C, E and B12, oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower. For 3-4 months, these ingredients were nurtured, infused with light and sound, until they became something greater than the sum of their parts - the nutrient-rich, precious Miracle Broth™.

The Miracle Broth™ source of La Mer's profound powers of transformation, lies at the heart of the La Mer skincare line. Each new batch of Miracle Broth™ is infused with a drop of the living fermentation from the preceding batch, forming a timeless link to the original.
