Zeatin is a plant hormone derived from the purine adenine. It is a member of the plant growth hormone family known as cytokinins. Zeatin was first discovered in immature corn kernels from the genus Zea. It promotes growth of lateral buds and stimulates cell division to produce bushier plants if sprayed on meristems.

Zeatin and derivatives were discovered to be the primary active ingredient in coconut milk, which has long been known to actively induce plant growth.

Zeatin has been reported to have several in vitro anti-aging effects on human skin fibroblasts.
