It is universal truth that, sunlight plays a very vital role in nurturing the life system. It is important for the production of hormone, Vitamine D and for normal activities of human being. The sunlight promotes the melanin synthesis and skin regeneration, which can be useful to avoid painful sunburn or other skin related complications. This study is carried out to evaluate fruit extract of Cucumis sativus L. (Cucurbitaceae) as a antisolar agent. The fruit extract was prepared without addition of water by simple grinding. The UV absorption spectra for solutions were obtained by scanning them in ultraviolet region from 200-400 nm. The UV scanning spectra of the 5% extract showed maximum absorbance 3.867, 3.858 with 2 absorbance maxima (? max) 214.6, 210.2 nm respectively and one absorbance 3.588 at minima 213 nm. Whereas, 10% extract showed maximum absorbance 3.931, 3.888 3.846 with 3 absorbance maxima at 221.8, 211.8 and 226 nm and absorbance 3.624 at minima 217.2 nm respectively. It is observed that the Cucumis sativus L. can be efficiently used as a antisolar agent.
