The Hetkinen hand balm moisturises your hands effectively and naturally, providing protection from the drying effects of wind and cold weather. Created with shea butter and jojoba oil, the rich hand balm is particularly effective on dry and rough hands, cuticles and cracked heels, but is suitable for moisturising the entire body. The balm contains no added water, so a little goes a long way. The balm has fresh, energising scent created with peppermint oil and birch leaf extract.

The hand balm is packaged in a plastic-free wooden jar designed by Finnish Mona Isotupa, the winner of the FDS Award design competition 2017. Made of Finnish pine heartwood, the jar’s natural grain pattern evokes images of serene Nordic forests, creating a soothing sense of calmness right on your bathroom shelf or bedside table.

All Hetkinen skincare products only contain pure, natural ingredients with no parabens, artificial scents or colours, mineral oils or polyethylenes. All ingredients are plant-based, making Hetkinen natural cosmetics also suitable for vegans.
