Cosmetics chain Rituals has distanced itself from comments critical of the government’s vaccination policy made by two prominent sisters and removed an interview with them from its website.
Lieke Lexmond, an RTL television presenter, and his brother Jetteke signed a letter attacking what they see as mandatory vaccinations of children as aid in ‘a fight against a pandemic which is not became a pandemic ‘.
The letter was part of Moederhart’s (a mother’s heart) campaign in front of model Doutzen Kroes, who said anti Covid policies were ‘worth more lives than they saved’ and called on people to ‘follow their conscience’ when (not) adopting measures.
In a statement Rituals said it supported the government’s vaccination policy and the only communication with the sisters was through the sale of their Moon Calender, which has also gone viral on social media.
The Moonsisters, who they call themselves, claim to live according to the lunar cycle they say influenced events, including the attack on the Capitol in Washington in January. The calendar, retailing at € 29.95, offers ‘favorable moments of the month’ as well as recipients and ‘inspiring quotes’.

The company earlier binasura The calendar is claimed to be ‘a load of nonsense’ and ‘flaky’ claiming that it ‘supports the Moonsisters and their overwhelming love of moon power.’
‘The moon in its eternal cycle shows that every beginning and end is connected,’ Rituals wrote on social media earlier this week.
