Ahava cosmetic products from the Dead Sea will no longer be allowed to be labeled "Made in Israel" when sold in South Africa, the country's trade and industry minister announced in an official notice.

Minister Dr. Rob Davies issued the notice that will require South African importers "not to incorrectly label products that originate from the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) as products of Israel."
