The Kinerase skin care line has brought kinetin, N-6 Furfuryladenine, to the forefront as a potentially beneficial rejuvenation ingredient.
Kinetin is widely regarded as a gentle treatment which is used as a viable alternative to the potentially harsher anti-aging treatment options such as Vitamin A, particularly for those with sensitive, dry or reactive skin.
While there are very few clinical studies or published research on the rejuvenating properties of kinetin, N-6 Furfuryladenine, type of plant hormone, evidence indicates that this growth factor can:
Plant hormones and stem cells contain amino acids and peptides, which are powerhouse ingredients for skin rejuvenation. “These are the building blocks for cell rejuvenation, so over the past few years, there have been a variety of both animal- and plant-based stem cells in skin care products,” explains Dr. Green, a Board-Certified Dermatologist. “Stem cells naturally have antioxidant properties, and they nourish skin cells which promotes cell turnover and increases collagen production.”
The gentle moisturizing and soothing properties of kinetin are used in treatments for fragile skin after certain medical procedures like chemical peels and deep laser resurfacing as well as by Dermatologists to treat sensitive skin caused by rosacea, eczema, or dermatitis.
Look for "combination" rejuvenating treatments that contain a cocktail infused with several clinically proven active anti-aging ingredients, including kinetin for the best results.
