Ready to update your skincare routine to the next level and treat yourself with a quality plant-based cleanser?
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:

Number of Covid patients in Malaga hospitals drops by 53.5 per cent in one month: The number of patients suffering from Covid in Malaga hospitals has dropped by 53.5 per cent in the province in one month, which shows that there has been a reduction in infections and a lower virulence of the virus among infected patients. It has gone from 181 patients who were admitted to Malaga hospitals on 12 July to 84 this Friday, 12 August. Likewise, there has been a decrease in admissions to the intensive care units (ICU) in Malaga, where there are six patients with SARS-CoV-2 compared to the nine on 12 July (33 per cent fewer).
– Looking at Andalucía, as a whole, it can also be seen that there has also been a notable decrease in hospitalisations for coronavirus in the last month. There were 814 patients on the wards on 12 July, and this Friday there are 414, which represents 49 per cent less.

Both men had previously served as touring musicians on various Black Sabbath treks, including the group’s farewell tour from 2016-17.
