Kinetin is part of a group of similar plant hormones called cytokinins. It's primary role is to extend plant life by promoting cell division and cell enlargement. It is also involved in apical dominance. Kinetin is also called 6-Furfurylaminopurine.
Clinical study results demonstrate Kinetin reverses the signs of photo damaged skin and improves the overall appearance of the skin, making it smoother and more even in color and visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The studies also prove Kinetin significantly improves the skin barrier function and helps the skin to retain more moisture, making the skin softer and smoother.
Kinetin is a cytokinin that, in clinical trials at the University of California, Irvine, has been shown to reduce the signs of aging that are due, primarily, to photo damage. An essential plant growth factor that can also be found in the human body involved in DNA tissue repair, Kinetin has also been shown to retard age-related changes in human skin cells in culture. A powerful antioxidant, Kinetin reduces the signs of aging and helps to protect the skin from oxidative damage caused by the sun. The product has under gone clinical studies similar to those done with Renova, demonstrating comparable efficacy in the improvement of fine wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, and was shown to be more effective in the improvement of skin texture. Kinetin achieved these results without the irritation frequently reported with the use of Renova.
