MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing
Do you know that our Ultra Moisturizing Body & Hand Cream is made from 100% natural ingredients?
The powerful combination of aloe vera, beeswax, grapeseed, wheat germ, shea-butter and lavender essential oil will give your skin long-hours hydration and sun protection.
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. We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices.
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.

Unreliable News- Beware of news stories that open with “Study Shows…”:
-News outlets are in a constant race to get out the latest news stories to stay ahead of their competitors. A new trend shows that they are now raiding websites that host pre-peer-reviewed scientific studies for new stories to report. These sites are designed to provide researchers the ability to view, confirm and validate new studies, so they may then be updated, corrected and then submitted to official scientific journals as peer reviewed. These sites were never supposed to provide info for common distribution.
Let me explain…
-In order to validate a new science study the researchers must submit it to technical journals for publication. The journals then post these not yet validated studies on special websites for researchers, so other researchers can “peer review” the study. If it is confirmed by the peers/researchers on these pre publication websites, it is then approved for publication in the scientific journals as peer reviewed, and thus validated.
-The problem is that the news outlets are now scanning these “pre-peer-review study hosting sites”, and posting articles based on the un-validated studies. These sites all contain disclaimers clearly explaining the info in the studies they host are unverified, not yet peer reviewed, and are not to be relied on as accurate. Most news outlets fail to mention that disclaimer in their articles, often posting the unverified info as fact, with eye catching sensational headlines saying “Study Shows…” as if that means it must be true.
-When you read any news based on a study, before believing it, check the source of the study to confirm it comes from a major scientific journal, and not a “pre-peer-reviewed scientific studies” website.
And now you know the story behind the story. -Naythan


WhatsApp will stop working on old smartphones in two months leaving millions of people from seeing messages: Some 43 models – both Android and iOS – will be unable to use the encrypted messaging service.
Smartphones models with Android 4.0.4 or earlier will become incompatible, as well as iPhones with iOS 9 or earlier installed.
These phones are:
-Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, Trend II, Trend Lite, Core, Ace 2
-LG Optimus F7, F5, L3 II Dual, F7 II, F5 II
-Sony Xperia
-Huawei Ascend Mate and Ascend D2
-Apple iPhone SE, 6S, and 6S Plus
WhatsApp claims phasing out support for older phones will make the app run more securely. The messaging service has lost many users over the last year due to ongoing security concerns over its new terms of service.
WhatsApp was traditionally known for it encrypted messaging service but recent changes to the way it handles users’ data has created an uproar. These measures would hand user data to private companies for marketing purposes.
This comes as WhatsApp was fined £193m – the second-highest fine under new data protection laws – after it was found to have breached EU data regulations. Full article: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/16038390/whatsapp-will-stop-working-on-old-smartphones-in-november/
