This review was aimed to highlight the role of ZnO and TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) as textile protective agents against Ultra Violet radiation. Different synthetic methods of ZnO and TiO2 NPs that affecting their nano size and their ability to absorb UV radiation have been reported. The formed ZnO or TiO2 NPs can be applied on treated or untreated fabrics individually to provide UV protection or in combination with other materials to provide multifunctional finished fabrics. Cons and Pros of each application process in addition to comparison of the methods of preparation of ZnO and TiO2 NPs were discussed separately in this review paper.
