Sunscreens are cosmetic preparations that protect the skin from exposure to UV radiation resulting in erythema , skin burning , aging and skin cancer. Leaf of Sesbania grandiflora (L.) Pers. contain phenolic compounds such as tannins and flavonoids which act as photoprotective . This research method is experimental with quantitative descriptive analysis. The purpose of research is to know the value of SPF, transmission erythema (% Te) and pigmentation (% Tp) of acetone extracts of Sesbania grandiflora (L.) Pers. using Spectrophotometry UV -Vis at a wavelength of 280-400 nm with intervals of 5 nm. This study variations in extract concentration were made 100, 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000 ppm. The results SPF value of all concentrations is 1.9 (minimum); 3.6 (minimum); 15.9 (moderate); 56.3 (high); 133.9 (high); and 136.6 (high). The %Te value is 400 ppm ( fast tanning), 600 ppm (regular suntan) and 1000 ppm (extra protection). The value of %Tp at all extract concentrations is included in the category total block.
