But excessive radiations of sunrays are unprotected and leading to painful sunburn or other skin related complication. This study evaluates on UV absorption ability of flower of hibiscus rosa-sinensis Linn as an anti-solar agent. The extract was prepared with 90% ethanol by maceration process. The method was performed by UV visible spectrophotometer in the range of 200-400nm. The finalize result of extract was reported as maximum absorbance at 200nm while good absorbance at 260nm to 300nm. The moderate absorbance at 300-400 nm.
