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.

Submission Chemistry or Culture Clash Attempt to Intimidate Women In Public?- Dept. of Interior works to clarify if the ‘punctures’ seek chemical submission or to intimidate women: {Translation} 5 Aug 2022
– The Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, said Friday that they are still working to determine what is behind the wave of ‘pricks’ in nightlife venues that has intensified this July, all to clarify whether these practices seek chemical submission or “intimidate” women to drive them out of public spaces.
– “It is necessary to determine whether there is a traditional chemical submission with the aim of subduing the will of a person who commits this crime, or whether there is another intention behind it, such as trying to convey a security situation as a way of intimidating a group with this sexist discourse of trying to remove women from public spaces”, he explained.
– In an interview on TVE, picked up by Europa Press, the Interior Minister said that there are a total of 60 complaints throughout Spain and that, given this increase, they are working on an individualised study to clarify whether these incidents are attributed to chemical submission.
– The minister pointed out that there is a protocol for cases of chemical submission and that this is an issue on which they have been working “for a long time”. For this specific case, he also specified that they are working in coordination with all the regional police forces and also with local police forces. Finally, he stressed the importance of reporting these criminal acts and going as soon as possible to a health care centre for analysis in the shortest possible time.

New Telephone Scam- The Police register 15 complaints of telephone fraud in Almería, Granada, Jaén and Málaga:
{Translation, summary} 05/08/2022 14:14
– The National Police has warned of a new type of telephone scam after registering 15 complaints from victims in the provinces of Almeria, Granada, Jaen and Malaga in which an alleged operator asks users for their passwords to access the digital portal of online banking to cancel a supposed intrusion when, in reality, they are seeking to obtain a financial benefit without the consent of the victims.
– The victims receive a call from a telephone number with a prefix in the province of Malaga, in which an operator alerts her clients about several attempts to access their bank accounts or ‘app’, and at the same time, they are asked for the access codes to Unicaja’s digital portal, in order to supposedly cancel this intrusion.
– The National Police have clarified that these calls are not issued from Unicaja, nor from any company collaborating with this bank, but are most likely being made through programmes designed to defraud the bank’s customers.
– Likewise, in other cases whose mechanics are similar when it comes to setting up the scam, the previous contact comes via SMS, and is framed within Unicaja’s messaging channel. All the fraudulent SMS are characterised by the fact that they include a link to a fake website that impersonates Unicaja Banco’s Digital Banking and show URLs with domains containing the word ‘unicaja, unicajabanco’.
– The police have insisted that banks will never ask their customers for their card details, personal details, or digital banking keys and passwords, by means of oral or written communications.

Spain’s Government clarifies its savings plan and lowers the air conditioning limit in bars and shops to 25 degrees:
– The Minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, has specified that bars and restaurants can limit the use of air conditioning to “around 25 degrees”, taking into account the recommendations of labor legislation, compared to 27 degrees contemplated by the royal decree on energy saving and efficiency measures approved by the Government.
– “You cannot ask workers who are in conditions of important physical exercise not to have the conditions that labor law guarantees with respect to the maximum and minimum temperatures,” Ribera assured in statements to Onda Cero collected by Europa Press. For this reason, businesses and establishments must justify when they do not apply the temperature limit in the thermostat, a flexibility incorporated in the decree law to protect the occupational health rights of their workers.

Start Of England’s River Thames Dries Up For First Time—Latest Iconic Waterway Hit By Droughts And Heat Waves:
– The head of England’s River Thames dried up Thursday for the first time ever as record heat and droughts take their toll on major rivers and bodies of water around the world. (See pic)
– The source of the Thames moved more than two miles downstream, The Guardian reported, as portions of England’s iconic river dried, following an extreme July heat wave that set record highs across Europe.
– Water levels in Italy’s Po River, meanwhile, hit a record low in the wake of the country’s worst drought in 70 years, accelerated by abnormally high temperatures, as Italy’s government declared a state of emergency in what former Prime Minister Mario Draghi called the “most serious water crisis” in seven decades.
– In the United States, scientists in Albuquerque rushed to save minnows as the northern stretch of the Rio Grande was reduced into a shallow stream.
– Droughts in the western United States have also brought Nevada’s Lake Mead and Utah’s Lake Powell to record lows, threatening to stunt hydroelectric energy production. A 22-year drought has exposed more than 700 square miles of Great Salt Lake, reducing fish and migratory bird habitat and releasing toxic dust into the air around Salt Lake City.

Low water levels mean Rhine is days from being shut for cargo:
Germany’s Rhine, one of Europe’s key waterways, is just days away from being closed to commercial traffic because of very low levels caused by drought, authorities and industry have warned. Its dangerously low levels recall the drought that shut it down for around six months in 2018. Crucially, the impending crisis could lead energy companies to cut their output, one of the country’s biggest gas companies has said.

– Rafael Nadal withdrew from the upcoming hard-court tournament in Montreal on Friday because of the abdominal injury that caused him to pull out of Wimbledon ahead of the semifinals. The Spaniard had been 19-0 in Grand Slam matches this year when he decided the injury was too much at Wimbledon.
– American player Mackenzie McDonald will replace Nadal in the draw.
– Djokovic withdrew from the Montreal tournament on Thursday because he is not vaccinated against COVID-19 and is therefore not allowed to enter Canada. Photo: AP/K.Wigglesworth.

Want to impress your Spanish friends?: The next time the topic of Spanish music comes up, don’t mention Camarón, Nina Pastori or Paco de Lucia. They are well known worldwide. Instead, tell them you enjoy Emilio el Moro. That is sure to bring a smile to their faces, and gain you some respect for your knowledge of lesser known Spanish legends.
– Emilio Jiménez Gallego (2 November 1923 – 12 July 1987) was born in the Spanish enclave of Melilla. He was a fan of Flamenco from childhood, and in 1939 at fifteen years of age, he performed in public for the first time, and then went on to consecutively win seven singing competitions, performing different genres, like fandangos, soleás, tientos, polos or cañas. Charming and a joker, he one day sang Flamenco in an Arabic style, and received such an ovation that he then decided to create the character of Emilio el Moro. This character gained him a huge following as he mixed music and humour in a way that endeared him to Spaniards young and old, rich and poor. The great voice, remarkable guitar skills and well timed humourous flairs combined to make him a unique legend of Spanish music.
– The personality with which he endowed his songs, even allowed him to camouflage his social and cultural criticism against the system, against the dictatorship, partially relieved of the burden with humor. Emilio “El Moro” was, in short, a brilliant and unique artist at a time when the show was himself: as an actor, as a producer, as a screenwriter, as a businessman… However, Emilio “El Moro” is today an unjustly forgotten character (the history of this country was never kind to humorists), and only the figure of a guitar, on his tombstone, reminds us of everything that was in his family vault in Monforte del Cid.
