Passata is an ingredient you might be more used to eating than washing with; it's commonly used as an added ingredient in flavoursome Italian cooking. In our Cream of Tomato soap it packs a full, ripe tomato punch and aroma.
Tomatoes are strained of seeds and skin to make a thick, uncooked tomato puree. Ripe tomatoes contain many ingredients beneficial to the skin, vitamins A and C, potassium and lycopene; however, 93% of this fruit is water. The refreshing, cooling and deodorising action of fresh tomatoes makes them an ideal ingredient for our Volcano foot mask.
The tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a member of the potato family and the nightshade genus, and it originates from western South America. There are now thousands of varieties, adapted to all sorts of climates across the globe.
