Colegate Palmolive and Dead Sea Salt

I like my shower gel. Palmolive make Thermal Spa Mineral Massage. It contains Dead Sea salt. It feels good on the skin but it also troubles my conscience.

The question is which side of the Dead Sea is the salt extracted? From Jordan or one of the illegal Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestine?

I wrote to Colegate a few months ago but never got a reply. I want to give Colegate the benefit of the doubt. But if the Dead Sea salt is stolen from the Palestinians then I won't be buying Colegate or Palmolive products again.

It will be interesting to see if there is a link up between Colegate and Ahava
