Star Scarlett ends Oxfam tie over Israel row.
SodaStream has come under fire from pro-Palestinian activists for maintaining a large factory in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank, a territory captured by Israel in 1967 and claimed by the Palestinians.
In response to the criticism, Johansson said last week she was a "supporter of economic co-operation and social interaction between a democratic Israel and Palestine".
Oxfam took issue saying it was "considering the implications" of what it meant for the actress's role as an Oxfam global ambassador.
