The new Treatment Lotion is a miraculous source of vitality, the essential step toward transformation. Like "liquid energy," this rich and silky hydrator visibly awakens the complexion and drives moisture deep into the skin to improve texture and even tone. Skin is perfectly prepared to receive the full benefit of La Mer regimen that follows.
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, so he began a personal quest to transform the look of his skin. After 12 years and 6,000 experiments, he perfected the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, source of La Mer's profound powers of transformation.
Dr. Huber believed the sea was a miraculous resource and sea kelp captured his imagination. With potent nourishing properties and an endless ability to regenerate, it held promise and hope.
He hand-harvested and fermented kelp gently with simple, pure ingredients, infusing them with light and sound until they became the Miracle Broth™, soul of the cream that renewed and helped restore his skin.
Today, the Miracle Broth™ lies at the heart of the La Mer skincare line.
This potent ferment is derived from a remarkable marine algae called Scenedesmus found in the Sahel Desert of Africa at the surface of sands once covered by the ocean. A single drop of water can revive this algae from its dormant state, reawakening its metabolism and defenses. Scenedesmus’ ability to withstand extreme conditions gives this ferment its moisture-enhancing, protective and skin-rejuvenating properties.
In addition, a nourishing blend of sea minerals replicates the properties naturally found in seawater to replenish skin cells and help optimize their function.
The proprietary Softening Waters give the Treatment Lotion a luxurious, silky texture that plumps, conditions and softens skin on contact. This unique and powerful delivery system increases skin’s ability to absorb moisture (in a clinical test, there was a 75% increase in skin’s immediate hydration) for an optimal healthy look and radiant glow.
