At a recent visit to Kildonan Place in Winnipeg I came across a kiosk selling Seacret products made from dead sea mud. I immediately told the woman I DON”T BUY DEAD SEA products and she was surprised that I was even aware of Ahava and the controversy surrounding where these products are made. I let her explain a little more about the products so that I could examine the packaging and when I went on line I was able to do more research. Australian Friends of Palestine has been holding ongoing protests against this product since 2010 and accuses Seacret of stealing Palestinian resources to make their products.
What can you do? If you notice a Seacret kiosk in your local mall (there is one in St. Vital Centre too) express your concerns! Write a letter to the mall manager and mention it to your friends. These are tainted products and do not belong in our community.
