La Mer (cosmetics)
La Mer is a brand of cosmetics available to the public as a whole, and is owned by Estée Lauder.
Crème de la Mer, Estée Lauder's signature product, is a moisturizing cream containing fermented kelp. It was originally developed by NASA scientist Max Huber to treat his severe chemical burns which he sustained in an accidental explosion during an experiment. Dr. Huber sold and marketed this product himself. After his death, his daughter continued selling the cream until Estée Lauder purchased the rights to manufacture and distribute it.
