Hetkinen is a Finnish word and means wait a minute in English. When the Finns are thinking something, they usually say Hetkinen.
On this day, as we live a hectic life, it is important to have a Hetkinen moment for yourself. Stop for a while and calm down. When you apply for example hand balm to your hands, it is your Hetkinen for yourself.
We honour the wisdom of Nordic nature and all that it has to offer us. That’s why we choose and source our ingredients mindfully and use the purest essential oils that both smell good and do good.
The whole Hetkinen line of products is planned to be fit for everyone regardless of gender, age, or skin type. You don’t have to spend time choosing different products. Our products at Hetkinen are suitable for everyone. And this way, we can save your time as well.
Life is short and every moment is precious.

Hetkinen is a Lifestyle & Cosmetics Company Based in Turku, Finland.
Hetkinen was founded in 2018 by designer and former sales manager, Mona Isotupa. Mona defines herself as “a mother of two children, feminist, vegetarian, animal and nature lover,” as well as being an activist against deforestation. The company drives inspiration from the Finnish forests and trees. The design approach is careful and minimalist. Everything is made in harmony with the nature.
Hetkinen’s mission is to bring people closer to nature in their busy everyday lives via high-quality product innovations. All of Hetkinen’s products are gender-neutral, vegan, and manufactured in Finland at the company’s own factory.
Hetkinen uses Finnish pine heartwood for their jars and containers. It takes a pine tree 40 years to begin to produce heartwood, so it is used sparingly & respectfully, and as such, knots or stains in the wood are not discarded. Pine heartwood is used for it’s superior resistance to rot, antibacterial properties, and because it doesn’t absorb moisture.
