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.

La Viñuela reservoir water level is at its lowest since 2008:
Like a slim tongue of water stretching across the ground and getting smaller every day that there is no rain. That is the current picture at La Viñuela reservoir, which is the biggest in Malaga province. According to the regional government’s Hidrosur network , it contains 38.8 cubic hectometres of water at present. That is just 23.2 per cent of its capacity and is the lowest since 2008, when the levels were similar and La Viñuela was about to be declared a dead reservoir. That was avoided in the end, thanks to the heavy rainfall in the autumn of that year.
The comparison with 2020 also highlights the delicate situation this reservoir is in at present. Just a year ago, it contained 51 hectometres of water. Today, there are 17.6 fewer. Right now, everyone keeps looking hopefully at the sky.
Malaga meteorologist José Luis Escudero says the only solution for La Viñuela now is steady, sustained rainfall. Photo:ÑITO SALAS. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202109/17/vinuela-reservoir-only-full-20210917093738-v.html 


Amber list to be scrapped as England overhauls travel rules: The UK government announced Friday it is simplifying its controversial traffic light travel rules and removing mandatory Covid tests for vaccinated travelers returning to England from countries on its safe list.
-Grant Shapps, the UK transport minister, said in a series of Twitter posts that as of October 4, the current red-amber-green country lists that govern arrivals into England would cease to exist. In their place will be a “simpler” red list of no-go destinations.
-In addition, he said, eight countries will be removed from the red list on October 22, including Turkey – a popular destination for UK vacationers – Bangladesh, Egypt, the Maldives, Oman, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Kenya.
-The UK will no longer require pre-departure tests before arrival into England for fully vaccinated travelers coming from non-red list countries starting from October 4, said Shapps.
-“From later in October, (fully vaccinated travelers) will be able to replace the day two PCR test with a cheaper lateral flow,” he added, referring to the test required two days after arriving in England. Full article: https://dev-lite.cnn.com/en/article/h_1dba0be3d39535cd3ffae6e5c012bc6d

The panel that advises the Food and Drug Administration rejects use of booster dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in people younger than 65 on Friday: Pfizer had petitioned the FDA to approve a third dose of the two-shot vaccine for use in those ages 16 to 65 in the United States about six months after receiving the second dose of the vaccine, but the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted 16-2 to deny the petition, citing a lack of evidence to show the clear benefit of administering the booster shots to patients with fully functional immune systems.
