Introducing Soleil de la Mer™
The first in-sun collection from La Mer
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 precious, nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, the heart of La Mer’s profound powers of transformation.
The Miracle Broth
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 every La Mer product.
The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection
Inspired by Dr. Max Huber’s love of the sea and the reparative energy sources he found in nature, The Max Huber Research Lab has developed the first in-sun collection from La Mer. Luxurious and deeply nourishing, The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection allows for a soft, glowing complexion while delivering potent anti-aging benefits and helping defend the skin from environmental aggressors. The Reparative Face Sun Lotion SPF 30 and The Reparative Body Sun Lotion SPF 30 have been engineered for high performance in-sun protection that helps defend skin against UVA and UVB light, helping prevent future skin damage, while hydrating and repairing the look of skin from past damage. The Face and Body Gradual Tan gives skin an even, natural-looking glow while also providing long-lasting hydration. The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection has been designed to defend skin against premature signs of aging while repairing the appearance of existing damage for a healthy, luminous glow.
To boost the rejuvenating power of The Miracle Broth™, The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection contains the Golden Algae Ferment, which helps repair the look of skin during and after time spent in the sun. The Golden Algae Ferment is formulated with Laminaria Ochroleuca, also known as ‘Golden Algae,’ marine peptides and a blend of sea botanicals. Golden Algae, found off the Brittany coast in France, thrives in harsh conditions including intense sun and salty waters. These environmental stresses have made the restorative powers of the Golden Algae stronger, enabling it to help reduce irritation, prevent moisture loss and balance pH. This unique algae is an excellent anti-aging ingredient as it also helps skin stimulate its natural collagen production and protects cells on the skin’s surface. The Golden Algae Ferment works both during and after UV exposure to protect the integrity of skin cells while in the sun and reduce the look of redness that may emerge later. Marine peptides help firm the look of sagging skin and boost natural collagen production, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Additionally, a blend of sea botanicals including red algae are incorporated into The Golden Algae Ferment to even skin tone after time spent in the sun. This reparative blend of ingredients allows The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection to nurture skin to help restore youthful radiance.
The Soleil de la Mer™ Collection also contains The Restorative Waters, a blend of leafy brown algae, Lime Tea Extract and Deconstructed Waters™. Known for its rich anti-oxidant properties, the leafy brown algae, Alaria Esculenta, works in conjunction with La Mer’s powerful Lime Tea Extract and other potent anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, to help protect and visibly revitalize the skin. To provide targeted delivery of the formula while also enhancing its activity, the Deconstructed Waters™ carry positively and negatively charged waters to the skin. Attracted to skin cells of the opposite charge, these water clusters drive the potent ingredients directly to different layers of the skin’s surface for intense protection and restoration.
The Soleil de la Mer™ formulas are weightless, non-greasy and absorb quickly without leaving a residue.
