The Power of Sea Silt
Crafting with Care
Purity & Ethics
In 1981, the physiotherapist Paul Gojny observed the beneficial effect that sea silt has on the skin and started using the marine components in sea silt in skincare products to alleviate a number of skin conditions and disorders. To this day, the company follows this philosophy; everything we do at La mer Cosmetics AG focuses on the people who use our products.
Already in the early 19th century, spa therapies were widespread along the Mediterranean coast. Seawater contains the same minerals and trace elements as human blood plasma, which is why the body can absorb and process them particularly well. In Germany, physiotherapist and sea lover Paul Gojny discovered the positive effect of sea silt. The tides collect the minerals and trace elements of the sea water on the seabed and compress them into sediments. Their concentration in the silt is ten times higher than in sea water and thus forms a naturally created basis for particularly well-tolerated skin care. In its own laboratory in Cuxhaven, La mer Cosmetics continues the success story of Gojny to this day, isolating and processing the sea silt extract obtained directly on the doorstep and refining it with other marine active ingredients into unique skin care products. The extraction of the sea silt from the sediments of the exclusive North Sea biotope in the Wadden Sea National Park of Lower Saxony is done by hand.
All La mer and LAMARIN skincare products are developed and produced at the company headquarters in Cuxhaven. La mer Cosmetics AG has exclusive harvesting rights for sea silt, which is collected in a single biotope and processed at our premises.
All La mer and LAMARIN products are developed in the company's own laboratory in Cuxhaven. La mer's Sea Silt Extract is obtained using a specially developed, unique extraction process. The company works closely with scientific institutions and research centres. Rigorous tests ensure compliance with the highest quality standards and ensure
that the products are exceptionally well tolerated.
All La mer and LAMARIN products are “Made in Germany”; they are formulated at the company headquarters in Cuxhaven, and are packaged and hand-finished in our own production facilities here. La mer products are manufactured in compliance with the GMP standard (Good Manufacturing Practice) DIN EN ISO 22716. All La mer departments collaborate closely, effectively and flexibly to secure the high quality of LAMARIN products along the entire production chain.
