Creme de la Mer's Blue Heart
This is one for the hardcore Creme de la Mer fans – their annual charity collector’s pot. If you have £300 and you want a pot of your favourite face cream, and to help celebrate World Ocean Day (today, June 8) and Creme’s ongoing commitment to the ocean, though their Blue Heart philanthropic mission, then here’s this year’s pot.
An incredible 95% of the world’s ocean is still unexplored. It really is, as Creme say, the mysterious ‘blue heart’ of the planet, and is a vital life force for Earth.
“The ocean is an integral part of La Mer’s heritage, and we are committed to celebrating the beauty and bounty of the ocean throughout the year,” says Sandra Main, Global Brand President of La Mer. “We continue to be inspired by the National Geographic Society, and their ‘Explorer-in-Residence’ Dr Sylvia Earle, whose work reminds us that we can all help protect the blue heart of our planet.”
So, this year’s Creme offering is this lovely 100ml jar of their classic cream, a new limited-edition design, for the first time ever inscribed with ‘Blue Heart’ to communicate the brand’s message.
Creme de la Mer donate to the UK charity BLUE (Blue Marine Foundation), which exists to fix the largest solvable environmental problem on the planet – the crisis in the oceans. To date the charity has been instrumental in creating the two largest marine protected areas in the world in the last five years – the Chagos Archipelago and the Pitcairn Islands.
Creme de la Mer has donated over $2.6 million since 2008 to help promote ocean conservation efforts globally.
So, if you want to help, then get a pot of this cream.
