I understand, in an abstract way, how a silicone primer works to even out the skin's texture. But Laura Mercier's primer has no silicone; it is water based, and water absorbs into the skin. So how is her primer able to smooth the surface?

I asked the local counter manager, and she said she didn't know the science behind it.

I'm not sure the science behind it either. However, I love it! It works great with any foundation I use and doesn't feel heavy like silicone primers.
