MOONETTE Organic & Aromatic Skincare for 40+
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices
New products coming soon – Super Lip Balm & Bulgarian Rose Face Cleanser
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 health. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help slow down the ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, improving facial complexion and eliminating blemishes.
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, cell revitalization and antioxidant effect, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients with gorgeous fragrances.
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 local customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering a small discount on future purchases to customers recycling containers.
Free small testers are available on request. Please call us to find out more or to order: Tel 650 044 102

Ecofruit4you: Do You like healthy food? Natural and without residuals of insecticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. But full of Vitamins, Minerals and with a wonderful taste?
We can offer You various seasonal fruits all around the year from our lovely Finca in Otivar, Province of Granada. The valley is called “rio verde” because it is nearly all the year long very green and has a very fruitful soil what reduces the necessary amount of fertilizers which are especially developed for ecologic farming.
Even if you live far away we are happy to get it delivered to your door in 10kg boxes or bigger, which may contain only one or different products.
All our trees and plants are carefully taken care of as we are academic professionals in the field of garden, gardening and agriculture. Stefan is additionally educated as a classical homeopath and we use homeopathic products instead of insecticides or against snails. We are happy to give you advice about this kind of treatment if you have problems in your garden.
The variety of fruits and vegetables includes Avocados, Mangos, Chirimoyas, Oranges, Olives, Algarobos, Mandarines, Lemons, Kaki, Nispero, Figs, Papaya, Guava, Grapes, Bananas, Quince and very new 10 trees of Lemon caviar.
Lemon caviar is a small lemon which has a exactly like caviar looking yellow or rose fruit pulp. It is very delicious, decorative and healthy against lactose intolerance and assists in losing weight. We expect to get the first few fruits next year.
On our finca we have our own well coming out of the mountain with always fresh and cold water which is stored in a deposit to feed our trees and our house. About 50% of the land stays left alone as a natural home for all kinds of animals. Birds, bats, snakes, spiders, lizards, bees, vesps, ants, butterflies and a lot more of insects.
We use specific pheromone traps to prevent from the dangerous species of the processionaria caterpillar which lives on genuine pine trees, and against the fruit flies many trees have got a bottle pheromone trap.
Thanks to our 4 cats we do not need to care about rodents.
Hopefully all this gives you an appetite to go for healthy fruits and vegetables and we are happy to serve you in person or by delivery.

The differences between the Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford coronavirus vaccines- what we know so far: Price and storage temperatures are among the various factors that set each of the three most promising candidates apart. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/science_tech/2020-12-01/the-differences-between-the-pfizer-moderna-and-oxford-coronavirus-vaccines-what-we-know-so-far.html


Moderna vaccine confers at least 3 months immunity: Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, they said that the antibodies, which stop the SARS-CoV-2 virus from invading human cells, “declined slightly over time, as expected, but they remained elevated in all participants 3 months after the booster vaccination.”
Even though the number of antibodies fade over time, that’s not necessarily a cause for concern.
NIAID director Anthony Fauci and other experts have said it’s very likely that the immune system will remember the virus if re-exposed later on, and then produce new antibodies.
Encouragingly, the study showed that the vaccine activated a certain type of immune cell that should help out in the so-called memory response, but only longer term study will confirm if this will really be the case.

Spanish government passes 1st hurdle to legalize euthanasia: After early elections twice last year thwarted the Socialist party’s attempts to change the law, parliament voted Tuesday by 201 votes to 140 in favor of accepting its euthanasia bill for consideration.
The step puts the bill on a path to possible approval. It now goes to a parliamentary health committee for discussion and then heads to the Senate before returning to the lower house for a final vote.
That would make Spain just the fourth European Union country, after Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, to allow euthanasia, which is when a doctor kills patients at their request. As well as those countries, assisted suicide, where patients administer the lethal drug themselves under medical supervision, is also permitted in Switzerland and some U.S. states.

Cannabis Is Officially a Medicine, Following Historic UN Vote: The vote to remove cannabis from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs was narrowly won by 27 to 25 votes, with the US and UK voting for the change and Russia heading a bloc of countries – including China, Pakistan and Nigeria – which were against the move.
The UN decision will add to a growing drive in many countries to increase access to cannabis-based medicines, and could also spark more scientific research into the drug’s long-known medical properties.
Currently, more than 50 countries worldwide have adopted medicinal cannabis programmes. Canada, Uruguay and 15 US states have legalised recreational use, with Mexico and Luxembourg close to becoming the third and fourth countries to do so.

Nerja rolls out its rat control campaign: A specialised company is carrying out extensive disinfection and eradication of rats.

European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Results: Smoking and drinking among 15–16-year-old school students are showing signs of decline, but there are concerns over potentially risky cannabis use and the challenges posed by new addictive behaviours. These are among the findings released today in a new report from the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD). The study, published in collaboration with the EU drugs agency (EMCDDA), is based on a 2019 survey in 35 European countries, including 25 EU Member States.
