Major London Retailer for Ahava Dead Sea Salts Forced to Close; Boycott Campaign Claims Credit

After a 2-year long campaign that involved bi-weekly protests, consumer education and petitions challenging the Ahava company’s illegal theft of Palestinian land and resources, British activists are now claiming credit for the decision by Ahava’s flagship store in London to shut its doors.

The Dead Sea Salts and other cosmetics sold by the Ahava company are produced in the illegal Israeli settlement of Mitzpe Shalem, and the Israeli control of the Dead Sea and its resources are in violation of a decades-old 'Dead Sea Agreement’ between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.'
