Behind La Mer: The Lady Genius and Next Max Huber

Loretta Miraglia.
We're quite familiar with Dr. Max Huber, creator of the miraculous Crème de la Mer. Now I'd like to introduce you to Senior Vice President and Head of Product Development and Innovation at Crème de la Mer,  the genius, Loretta Miraglia.

Loretta is the mastermind creating all the new and exciting, ground-breaking La Mer products at the Max Huber Research Laboratories in New York. Loretta continues to stay true to Dr. Huber’s legacy.

Dr. Max Huber.
“Max is my inspiration – energy, material science, the wonder of physics – knowing that anything is possible brings the future that much closer to our fingertips”.

Sometimes described as being quite secretive in revealing what she's working on, or how she innovates, she always stays true to the soul of La Mer, saying that "No change is a good thing". When she gets hounded to launch a new product, she often refuses to do so until she's happy that it's perfect, and that it's "The best that it can be".

Superstar Serum

UPDATE in comments below.
Crème de la Mer The Regenerating Serum – The world’s best serum* – Watch The trailer for this breakdown (also in 3D);

What is a Serum?
La Mer serums are highly potent, concentrated treatments targeting deep into the skin, with rapid penetration, that focusses on skin care concerns such as wrinkles, dullness and unevenness, and enhances the benefits of your Crème de la Mer moisturizer.

Why The Regenerating Serum?
Crème de la Mer never boasts with their products on how quickly one sees an improvement, with The Regenerating Serum, rightfully, they do. In a day you can see results, and even more over time – appearance of lines, wrinkles, and pores get diminished. The bio-fermented ingredients are key to the visible results of The Regenerating Serum.

The Ingredients
Eryngium Maritimum
AKA Sea Holly, a very rare marine plant known for its vigor and ability to withstand stress. Stem cells from Eryngium Maritimum are bio-fermented, which helps skin trigger the production of collagen, elastin and other 'youth proteins'. Skin looks revitalized on contact and, over time, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is dramatically diminished.

Blanc de la Mer

2-13 Update - Brightening vs. Whitening
3-6 Update - Blanc de la Mer - The Brightening Collection

The rumor mill is in full swing as to launch dates and products related to the new Crème de la Mer Brightening Essence Intense, and many devotees, including myself, can not wait to get MY Brightening Essence Intense!

Since my first report, La Mer counters the world over have been bombarded with questions about the new Brightening Essence Intense, resulting in some interesting scoops, one from Neiman Marcus being that the Blanc de la Mer range might include a Cleanser, Toner, Serum, and Moisturizer!

Naturally, this is creating such a renewed demand for La Mer, even before it is available anywhere! Another devotee, Rashim Fitch, had a further interesting question;

"I wonder what's going to be different from the Asian version?".
Blanc de la Mer, focused on skin whitening,
not available in the West.

The only source thus far is the fabulous Harper's Bazaar, which gives an equivocal description for people "60+":
