Finding a great moisturizer takes time and patience. Many products claim to deliver phenomenal results but, very few actually deliver. When shopping for a moisturizer, it is ideal to find a multi-faceted product that delivers hydration, protects against free-radicals, and one that provides constant continuous hydration. Crème De La Mer claims that their moisturizing cream was “born from the sea”. Formulated with the brand’s Miracle Broth ™, the company suggests that moisturizer has the power to improve lines, wrinkles, and firmness in just a short time.
La Mer’s Miracle Broth™ was created by Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist. The company claims that it is a mixture of sea kelp and other natural ingredients that are fused with light and sound, causing them to be more potent. According to La Mer, the miracle ingredient was discovered after 6,000 experiments were performed. Creme De La Mer promises to be the answer the call for healing and on its website considers itself to be the “ultimate ritual of renewal”.
Crème De La Mer includes Seaweed Extract, Lime Extract, and Sesame Seed Oil as well as some additional extracts. Crème De La Mer suggests that its product can treat even the most dry skin with its unique formula. Although Crème De La Mer has a lengthy history, certain ingredients in the moisturizer have been found to cause irritation for some user. Though touted by the company as a miracle cure from the sea, further examination into the ingredients found in Crème De La Mer indicate that the components are readily available in regular moisturizing formulas. Key ingredients have been identified as Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, and Wax, elements that some have claimed do not justify the current price point of Crème De La Mer in relation to its effectiveness.
The point of a moisturizer is to keep your skin soft and supple with minimum irritation while providing added benefits of protection against stressors as well as healing for the signs of aging. A moisturizer cannot be effective if it is unable to be fully absorbed into the layers of the skin.
