10 brands you'll have to give up if you're boycotting Israel

Here are 10 brands in the crosshairs of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

8. Ahava

The Israeli cosmetics company, whose name means "love," is a common target of BDS supporters. Ahava's products use minerals from the Dead Sea, which borders occupied territory, and its manufacturing plant is located in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank that is also a shareholder in the company, giving the settlement a direct financial stake. Ahava exports to 45 countries, and derives about half its sales from such exports. (Editor's note: This slide replaces a previous one, after it was brought to our attention that while some include Starbucks in calls for boycotting Israel, it does not meet the criteria set by the BDS movement.)
