Description

Crème de la Mer is a brand that represents hope, healing and one man’s deep respect for the power of the living sea.

Twelve years and 6,000 experiments later, Miracle Broth — the legendary elixir — was born.

Since joining The Estée Lauder Companies in 1995, La Mer has become the most coveted skin care brand in the world. Based in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, La Mer is a collaborative, dynamic and closely connected group that has built the brand into a global beauty powerhouse and a leader in ultra-luxury skincare.
