Ahhhh, the legendary Crème de la Mer. A-list beauties like Salma Hayek, Kate Hudson, Ali Larter, Lucy Liu and Rihanna all swear by it, and now Fashiontribes has another reason to sing its praises. In addition to creating a special pink box especially for Breast Cancer Awareness month, this October, in connection with the North American sales of Creme de la Mer, La Mer will also be making a donation of $30,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by working with leading medical centers worldwide on the most innovative clinical and translational research.
Similarly, it was innovation, research and extraordinary circumstances that led to the discovery of Crème de la Mer.
Years ago, Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist, suffered a horrific accident — a routine accident exploded in his face — covering him with burns. Dissatisfied with his scarred appearance, Huber decided to help himself. Twelve years and 6,000 experiments later, he perfected a cream that would help give his skin a dramatically smoother appearance.Crème de la Mer is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, select specialty stores, and LaMer.com. $130 for 1oz.; $230 for 2oz.; $1390 for 16.5oz.
