La mer Cosmetics AG has its origins and headquarters in Cuxhaven at the heart of the Wattenmeer Nature Reserve in Lower Saxony, and we have a deep bond with this exceptional region and its unique flora and fauna. Animal protection is something we take very seriously. In Germany, a ban on animal testing for cosmetic products was introduced in 1998. Since La mer Cosmetics AG was founded we have never conducted animal testing nor asked others to do so on our behalf. Our in-house formulation experts select suitable ingredients and we use the latest technology to ensure that our products are exceptionally well tolerated without having to use animal testing. The skin-tolerance and function of our products are tested using in vitro methods or in vivo on volunteers. This means that we comply both with the latest standards in science and technology as well as the current statutory regulations.”
