Background: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L) has sunscreen efficacy consisting of lycopene which can provide ultraviolet (UV) irradiation in sunlight and protect skin from UV B induces photodamage.

Objective: This work aims to formulate attractive, effective, and stable sunscreen lotion from tomato extract.

Materials and Methods: Phytochemical screening and measurement of sun protection factor (SPF) values were performed first on tomato fruit extract. Thus, lotion formulations and SPF lotion measurements have been added tomato extract. Observations of pH, viscosity, frozen liquefaction cycle to see globule size, and centrifugation were performed to see the stability of the lotion preparation, and the latter was a qualitative test for the preparation of lotions compared with the extract.

Results: The concentration of tomato extract on sunscreen lotion which has SPF value close to SPF 15 from extract is 1% and 1.5% tomato extract with SPF value 18.84 and 22.24. Physical observation of the lotion is done by organoleptic observation, pH and viscosity measurement, centrifugation, and freezing of liquefaction and qualitative test shows a stable profile for 28 days of storage.

Conclusion: The results showed that the sunscreen lotion produced had good physical quality for 28 days of storage.

Key words: Tomato; Sunscreen Lotion; Sun Protection Factor
