Kinetin, (N6-furfuryladenine) is a plant hormone that promotes cellular growth. In plants, researchers have found that kinetin displays strong anti aging effects as well as fruit flies. In fact during laboratory experiments, the life span of cultured human skin cells was drastically increased. However, researchers still don’t know if a topical application of kinetin, at any concentration, has any effect on collagen development. Further research may prove that kinetin is a powerful anti-aging ingredient, or that it’s just another in a long line of promises that deliver little.
