Erno Laszlo has been helping the world’s most beautiful women maintain radiant complexions since 1927. Feted by Hollywood, celebrities such as Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly all entrusted their skin to Dr. Erno Laszlo, working closely with him to create tailored products and beauty regimens. One of Laszlo’s most fascinating muse was Marilyn Monroe who used his products religiously. Did you know Marilyn had a secret scar on her stomach that Dr. Erno Laszlo was able to treat? Here are some fun facts about the treatment of this secret scar.
Fun fact about Marilyn Monroe and Erno Laszlo:
- Dr. Laszlo developed several formulas to promote healing and help scar tissue throughout his career. Phormula 3-9 was his third formula 9th version which was rediscovered in 2001 and updated to fit today’s proposition.
- The base of today’s Phormula 3-9 is the original Dr. Laszlo’s core formula: essential fatty acids, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and this phelityl complex , which was evolved over time
- Dr. Laszlo custom designed his preparations for his clientele. In total he made 8 iterations of Phormula 3-9. Marilyn Monroe’s “Highly Active Phelityl Cream” is the product that was custom made for her and which she used for her scars. It is what we reference as “phormula 3-8” (this means: Phormula 3-8 and Highly Active Phelityl Cream are the same. One refers to the iteration of the formula and one was the “product name” that Dr Laszlo chose for Marilyn Monroe)
- When the original formula was rediscovered in 2001, Erno Laszlo chosen to “retail” it with the “‘lab” name as Phormula 3-9.
