Sunscreen  resources  mostly  obtained  from  plants  in  form  of  natural  substances  which  are  ability  to  absorb  ultraviolet  ray  in  the  UVA  region.  This  paper  evaluates  UV absorption ability of flowers from Clitoria ternata Linn (Fabaceae), Canna indica Linn (Scitaminaceae), as an anti-solar agent. Extracts were prepared by maceration with a mixture of distilled water and methanol (1:1). The method is performed by UV spectrophotomety in the range of 200 to 400 nm and results of all the extracts shows effective UV absorption in the given range
