La Mer Launches The Regenerating Serum

The Max Huber Research Labs have created The Regenerating Serum, La Mer’s new anti-aging powerhouse. Four years and hundreds of hours of lab work in the making, this ultra-luxe elixir is the result of the combined effort of physicists, marine botanists and biologists around the world. Not only does it contain a high concentration of La Mer’s proprietary Miracle Broth™, but it also includes the new Regenerating Ferment™, derived from marine plant stem cells.

Selected for its vigor and ability to withstand and resist stress, the stem cells of a marine plant Eryngium Maritimum are harvested and grown in a lab through sustainable processes. The cultivated cells and the liquid that contains them are then fermented, using sono-chemistry that helps to boost the activity of the ingredients to create The Regenerating Ferment™. It’s a process similar to that which Dr. Max Huber pioneered when he created its predecessor, the Miracle Broth™ in Crème de la Mer.

The Regenerating Ferment™ helps skin trigger its natural production of collagen, elastin and other “youth proteins,” harnessing the power of the skin’s ability to renew its appearance. In a day, skin looks rejuvenated. With continued use, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is radically diminished for a seemingly ageless look. And this multi-action serum accomplishes all of these feats with a lightweight suspension formula that’s friendly to all skin types.

Key Ingredients

  • Miracle Broth™: The original fermented elixir, known for its healing energies, developed by Dr. Max Huber.
  • The Regenerating Ferment™: A new bio-ferment containing potent marine plant stem cells. The Regenerating Ferment™ assists in the skin’s renewal, helping support its natural structure, restore its integrity and protect it from external aggressors.
  • The Marine Peptide Ferment: An anti-age marine algae and peptide complex which helps firm the look of skin and boost its natural collagen production, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Colloidal Gold: A skincare super-conductor that effectively delivers skin smoothing, firming and anti-irritant benefits to the skin.
  • Lime Tea: A unique lime peel extraction, and one of Dr. Huber’s original ingredients included in Crème de la Mer—a perfect antioxidant companion to the Miracle Broth™.

The Regenerating Serum (1 oz.) will retail for $250.00 and be available in March 2010 at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and www.lamer.com.

Any of you excited for the addition of The Regenerating Serum to La Mer’s range?

A unique polymer mesh technology delivers buildable, diaphanous layers to create a crease-resistant flexible/breathable application. Skin stays naturally flawless all day. Helps protect skin with SPF 25.

La Mer Supports Oceana in celebration of 2008 World Ocean Day

Dr. Max Huber, the founder of La Mer and creator of the legendary Crème de la Mer, looked to the sea for inspiration. While researching the sea kelp beds off the coast of Southern California, Dr. Huber developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of the ocean and worked to preserve its health and integrity. Today, in honor of his legacy, La Mer proudly announces its support for Oceana, the largest international ocean advocacy group, for World Ocean Day on June 8, 2008. This June, La Mer will donate $100,000 to Oceana to help fund global initiatives and support Oceana’s missions of ocean conservation.

Created in 1992, World Ocean Day provides an annual opportunity to recognize the sea’s importance as a vital ecosystem and to learn how to protect its resources for future generations. Supported by its marine scientists, economists, lawyers and advocates worldwide, Oceana’s work is strategic and delivers targeted results. With La Mer’s donation, Oceana will be able to increase research voyages on their Ketch catamaran, Ranger, and better patrol, document, and fight destruction of the ocean’s unique ecosystem. La Mer pays tribute to Dr. Max Huber through this partnership and celebrates its heritage and commitment to the welfare of the ocean.
