Lithospermum extract from Lithospermum is a kind of naphthoquinone, which has good anti-ultraviolet and anti-bacterial function. In this paper, the effects of different treatment temperature, time and ratio of liquid to liquid on the UV resistance of Lithospermum erythrorhizon extract were studied. The optimum extraction conditions were as follows: extraction temperature 60 ℃, extraction time 2 h, ratio of liquid to liquid of Lithospermum and ethanol 1:11. In this paper, the anti-UV finishing of cotton fabric was carried out, and the anti-ultraviolet and whiteness of the fabric were taken as the main indexes. The optimum process of the anti-UV finishing was as follows: the impregnation temperature was 70 ℃, the immersion time was 2h, 1:40. Compared with the uncoated cotton fabric, the fabric UPF value of the fabric was improved from 12.31 to 83.25, and the anti-ultraviolet performance was excellent, and it had certain bacteriostatic effect on Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli.
