One of the main means of daily facial skin care is a day cream. Based on the climatic conditions of Georgia and the specific conditions for its use, it must perform a number of functions.It must be a protective filter during sun exposure, solve specific skin problems –secure its nutrition, reduce skin dryness and dehydration when in open space, reduce the likelihood of skin irritation, reduce the number of wrinkles and fine lines, help to smooth them out, have antioxidant activity. In this regard, in the development of the cream formulation in its composition were used substances with specific activity, both organic and inorganic - by-products of the oil production from Rosa x damascena, which grows in Georgia, vegetable oils and extracts having UV protective activity and exhibiting antioxidant properties, inorganic substances, capable to counteract solar radiation by absorbing, reflecting or scattering it, and a number of other substances. Based on the data of the spectrophotometric study, the resulting cream exhibits protective activity against solar radiation in the region of 180-1000 nm.
