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 PRODUCT – Face Cleanser With Bulgarian Rose is now available, 100% organic & vegan
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 ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate 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.

Recommendation of Car Clean Malaga: On Tuesday, we received back the car that had been with Warren of Car Clean Malaga for treatment.
We have been most impressed with
1. The punctuality. Times given were adhered to.
2. The price quoted & charged.
3. We were kept in touch with the progress of the process.
4. Warren’s honesty in explaining if he was not happy with a result
& question if he should go ahead with the remedy.
The results on a 15year old car are far more than we anticipated.
The car is gleaming; paintwork, headlights, wheels, interior & boot.
Everything is to a standard greater than expected.
We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants their
car brought back to a pristine condition.
You can contact Warren at Whatsapp 618 346 098
Car Clean Malaga contact info can be found in the Sponsor’s Section of DigameXtra everyday.

Tax rises for high earners, a VAT hike for sugary drinks… Here are the changes included in Spain’s 2021 budget: The Spanish government has included a cocktail of fiscal measures in the 2021 budget, which has just been definitively approved by the Senate.
-Income tax (IRPF). The government has included a two-point rise in tax rates for earned income exceeding €300,000 a year, and of three points for capital income above €200,000.
-Sales tax (VAT). The budget includes a VAT rise for sugary and sweetened drinks, which will now be subject to a 21% rate compared to the current 10%.
-Excluded from the 2021 budget, meanwhile, is the planned reduction on VAT rates for feminine hygiene products and veterinarian services.
