MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
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.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
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.
Free small testers are available on request. Please contact us to find out more or to order:

Chaos in electricity bills due to errors in meter reading since June:
Adding to the rising cost of electricity in Spain is another problem that affects thousands of homes when paying the electricity bill. A delay persists in billing due to computer failures that have been dragging on since last June, as this newspaper reported. As of today, the chaos with these electricity bills has not been resolved because the actual consumption data in thousands of cases is still not transferred to paper, as quantified by the sector. Utilities blame distributors for the collapse in computer systems after the change in tolls methodology since the new rate came into effect.

An ‘earthgrazer’ flew ‘a whopping 186 miles’ over two states, then vanished, NASA says: A space object with an intimidating name—”earthgrazer”—zoomed over Georgia and Alabama this week, offering witnesses a glimpse of something rare, NASA says.
“Earthgrazers” are fireball meteors with a trajectory so shallow that they skim long distances across the upper atmosphere, NASA says.
“Very rarely, they even ‘bounce off’ the atmosphere and head back out into space,” NASA Meteor Watch wrote on Facebook.
The fireball appeared Tuesday, Nov. 9, around 6:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, officials say, and was “detected by three NASA meteor cameras in the region.” Full article: https://phys.org/news/2021-11-earthgrazer-flew-whopping-miles-states.html

Ms Moris told PA she was “relieved that reason [had] prevailed”.
She added: “I hope there will be no further interference with our marriage.” Full article: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-59254828
