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.

Spanish government caps maximum gas price and pledges ‘everyone will notice the difference in their electricity bills’ – IF the EU approves measure:
-Despite what some local news sources are saying, this is NOT a done deal without EU approval.
-The measure will be in force for one year and will begin in approximately two weeks, following authorisation from Brussels.
Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/


Brussels forces Spain to change the regulated electricity rate as a condition for approving the gas cap: Brussels has forced Spain to reform the semi-regulated electricity rate to decouple it from the hourly price of the wholesale electricity market. As confirmed by government sources, this is a requirement of the European Commission to give the green light to the Iberian cap on gas that has been approved this Friday by Spain and Portugal. The mechanism has already been approved by both governments and now needs the definitive approval of Brussels, which may take up to “two weeks,” according to Vice President Teresa Ribera.

-“It will be a gradual reopening: at midnight between Monday and Tuesday of next week, the steps of El Tarajal, in Ceuta, and Beni Enzar, in Melilla, will be reopened for citizens and residents of the European Union and for those people authorized to circulate in the Schengen Area,” the statement of the Ministry reads.

The renovation of public lighting begins in the urban area of Nerja: {Translation, summary}

In addition, work is being carried out on the old N-340 road, the accesses to the municipality from the motorway, the banks of the river Chillar, the El Playazo lane and the Camino de Burriana.
The type of LED lamp being installed has a longer lifespan than the current one, reduces the carbon footprint, is fully recyclable and allows for dimming.
