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:

Spanish fuel company offers discounts of up to 45 céntimos a litre to its most loyal customers: Cepsa has now gone a step further, so that many of its clients can fill their vehicles at prices which are similar to those of 2021. It is doing this by applying a further discount for holders of its loyalty cards, in addition to the government discount. These clients can save up to 45 céntimos a litre on fuel, which is around 25 per cent of the average price at Cepsa service stations in Spain.

The price of the light falls 10.1%, to 198,47 euros/MWh: {Translation, first 5 paragraphs}
-Compared to just a year ago, the price of the ‘pool’ for this Friday will be a 191,05% higher than the 68,19 € /MWh April 15, 2021
-The average price of electricity in the wholesale market today falls 10.1% compared to last Thursday, standing below the level of 200 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) and thus accumulating its third consecutive day of declines.
-Specifically, the average pool price for today, Good Friday holiday, will be 198.47 euros/MWh, 22.29 euros cheaper than yesterday’s 220.76 euros/MWh.
-The maximum price of electricity today will be between 21.00 hours and 22.00 hours, with 237.29 euros/MWh, and the minimum, 151.11 euros/MWh, has been recorded between 15.00 and 16.00 hours.
-Pool prices have a direct impact on the regulated tariff – the so-called PVPC – to which almost 11 million households in the country are subscribed, and serve as a reference for the other 17 million that have contracted their supply on the free market. In fact, the National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) has found that in 2021, as part of the upward spiral of energy prices, around 1.25 million people switched from the PVPC to a fixed-price free market tariff.

Semana Santa Malaga 2022:


Cúllar Vega will celebrate this Sunday its ‘explosive’ feast of the Resurrection: {Translation, summary}
-The residents of Cúllar Vega (Granada) will once again welcome the Resurrected Christ Child this Sunday, 17 April, in a very original way: amidst a huge cloud of gunpowder and smoke, caused by the thousands of firecrackers that the people of Cúllar Vega will throw as the image passes by.
-The procession known as the “Procession of the firecrackers” will break a new record this year after two years without taking place due to the pandemic, as the locals taking part in the festival have purchased more than 100,000 firecrackers, of a type called “Tro de Bac” (“thunder of impact”) which is manufactured expressly at the Pirotecnia Zarzoso in Altura (Castellón) for the procession in Cúllar Vega and for other festivals held in Valencia.

Emergency Chrome Update: Google on Thursday released emergency patches to address two security issues in its Chrome web browser, one of which it says is being actively exploited in the wild. Users are recommended to update to version 100.0.4896.127 for Windows, Mac and Linux to thwart potential threats. Users of Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Brave, Opera, and Vivaldi are also advised to apply the fixes as and when they become available.

Twitter adopts ‘poison pill’ to fend off Elon Musk’s $43B takeover bid: Twitter’s board of directors on Friday unanimously adopted a shareholder rights plan to fend off Elon Musk’s unsolicited $43 billion bid to take the company private. The plan, which is valid for one year, will kick in if Musk or anyone else acquires 15% or more of Twitter’s outstanding common stock in a transaction not approved by the board.
Often referred to as a “poison pill,” a shareholder rights plan offers companies a way to discourage a hostile takeover by another company or activist investor. Once the activist investor reaches a certain level of stock ownership (in this case, 15%), other shareholders are welcome to purchase stock at a discounted price, thereby diluting the activist buyer’s stake.
The plan does not prevent Twitter’s board from accepting an acquisition proposal if it believes it’s in the best interests of Twitter and its shareholders. Full article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/twitter-adopts-poison-pill-to-fend-off-elon-musks-43b-takeover-bid/#ftag=RSSbaffb68


Lyrids Meteor Shower Will Start Lighting Up The Skies From Tonight: The Lyrids are not considered a particularly spectacular meteor shower year on year, but they are consistent. From April 15 to 29, this meteor shower will streak across the sky, with its peak expected on April 22, according to the International Meteor Organization. They are called Lyrids as they appear to come from the direction of the Lyra constellation, whose brightest star Vega, is easy to spot.
-The three days around the peak are the best to actually observe this shower, although the full Moon happening tomorrow means that in a week, it will still be bright enough to make observations more difficult unless you stay up into the early hours. With good conditions, you should see about 18 meteors per hour visible across the sky. Photo:Podestaphotos.
