Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).
September Sale- 10% discount if you purchase 2 items in a phone or an email order. To find out more or to order, please call us on 650 044 102.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.
Andalucia Teachers Call For Strike: The strike is being called to take effect for all non-university public education centres in the Junta de Andalucia and is being called to occur between September 15, 2020, at midnight until October 16, 2020 at midnight.
In correspondence received by parents from the Junta de Andalucia on Friday September 11, 2020, the strike is considered necessary to ensure the safety of both staff and students.
As agreed by a union assembly, the action is to ensure that teachers do not have to take unnecessary risks at being exposed to Covid-19 without an effective vaccine or treatment process being available.

EU plays the money card as Johnson faces Brexit revolt in parliament:
The European Union on Monday ramped up pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step back from breaking the Brexit divorce treaty, delaying a key decision on London’s euro clearing just as he faces a rebellion in the British parliament.
The European Union says Johnson’s plan would wreck trade talks and propel the United Kingdom towards a messy Brexit while former British leaders have warned that breaking the law is a step too far that will tarnish the country’s image.

Israel to Celebrate Jewish New Year Under a Second Lockdown:
Citizens will be confined to within 500 yards of their homes for at least three weeks in an effort to contain the spread of coronavirus.
The announcement on Sunday came barely four months after Israel emerged from its last lockdown, too hastily, many critics said, and as its per capita infection rate rose to among the highest in the world. Full story: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/13/world/middleeast/israel-second-lockdown.html

The Spanish government has a hotline to answer all queries from Brits living in Spain about the implications of Brexit, in English. Callers can ring 060 when in Spain or +34 902 887060 if calling from abroad and an automated system will offer the choice of either Spanish or English.
You will then be offered a choice of information on the different issues.
The service also offers the option of speaking to an operator for those requiring further information or with a specific query not dealt with by the automated options. Source: https://www.thelocal.es/20200218/spain-launches-dedicated-brexit-hotline
