Press Release

The Dead Sea Pavilion in Hewlett carries products and brands that are as unique as its name. The small boutique, at 18 Franklin Ave., specializes in skin care and spa products from around the world that you wouldn’t find on the shelves of local drugstore chains or most department stores. 

The ingredients in all the body and bath products are intriguing and exotic, including butter from the African shea tree and minerals from the Dead Sea, for which the store is named. Related accessories and gift sets are also available. 

When it was established in 1995, the company was specifically geared to the online and wholesale market — until owner Joey Gilbert decided to set up a retail store in the Five Towns, which he opened about two months ago. 

“After all these years, I thought it would be nice to have a little retail shop that people could actually visit,” Gilbert said. “Plus, I live in the Five Towns, so Hewlett was a great place for it.”
