Currently the concern over skin cancer has presented large increase, especially in tropical countries due to the higher incidence of UVA/B radiation. Then, the use of sunscreens is extremely necessary to prevent the development of this disease. In this work nanocomposites consisting of poly(vinyl alcohol) reinforced with bio-hydroxyapatite nanoparticle obtained from the eggshell, for sunscreens application, were prepared by solution casting method. Nanocomposites prepared were evaluated for their organoleptic characteristics, microbiologic tests pH, XRD, and UV/VIS analysis.
