We Work Out to Stay Healthy, Not Get Sick

Ahhh, the gym. We feel so great about the workout, we occasionally let it slip our minds that all those machines, people and sweat—in a confined area no less, can make it a breeding ground for germs. Since hitting the yoga studio is for the good of your health, not the bad, we depend on a few straightforward rules to stay in good health—and we ALWAYS have Cuccio Somatology's Yoga Mat Sani Spray Cleanser AND Fitness Equipment Cleansing Wipes on hand.

Spraying down the elliptical or treadmill before (in case the person who just finished their five miles isn't as conscientious as you) and after use (because you're nice) stops the spread of bacteria that may have grown or crept up due to excess moisture (not to mention sneezes and sweat). We recommend using Cuccio Somatology's Fitness Equipment Cleansing Wipes on everything from the treadmill to weights to Bosu balls—the microfiber cloths are free of harsh chemicals so they're safe for all types of equipment (and your body).

For studio sessions, the cleaning of mats is essential to both health and the long term care of your mat. The environmentally friendly sanitizing mat cleaner that extends the longevity of yoga mats (while creating a more balanced and uplifting yoga experience). Cuccio Somatology's Yoga Mat Sani Spray Cleanser cleans naturally so your practice is free of bacteria, regardless of perspiration or frequency of use. It's crafted with naturally made antibacterial properties and smells amazing (like Eucalyptus and Aloe Vera).

Yogahhh(hhhh)

Some of us at KTB are Pilates addicts (with strength training mixed in), while some of us are long distance runners (Boston 2020!) and still other are complete and utter yoga devotees. Perhaps not surprisingly, there is one thing that we all totally agree on—Cuccio Somatology's Yogahhh! Milk Bath is the BEST post workout treat on the market (so just drop the bowl of ice cream already).

Fitness fanatics of all stripes (really, it's not just for yogis, we promise) deserve a soak in a relaxing bath that calms aching muscles and puts the mind at peace. The beautifully fragrant Yogahhh! Milk is formulated with magnesium—one of the six essential macro-minerals that make up 99% of the body’s mineral content (it helps build bones, enables nerve function, and energy production requires it). Magnesium is also essential to detoxifying the body, loosening stiff joints and relaxing hard working muscles.

Greek mastiha is used here to excellent effect for calm and clarity, but it also helps wounds and skin regenerate, while pure buttermilk assists in nourishing the skin (nothing worse than the parched skin typical after a long, hot dip). Vanilla bean adds to the experience, lending a soothing scent that eases the mind (and makes everything smell delicious).

We are true believers in self-care—Cuccio Somatology's Yogahhh! Milk Bath is an easy and ultra effective way to hydrate and unwind.

Cuccio Somatology For the Win

Danielle Cuccio, founder of Cuccio Somatology has every single right to be proud. Her exceptional product line is beloved by yoga devotees—and now one of her products has been included in the ultra popular FabFitFun Box. Whoop! So many more people will have the opportunity to try the Yogahhh! Milk (and love it, obviously).

Cuccio Somatology's Yogahhh! Milk packs a mighty punch, especially for anyone (ok, everyone) in need of a break. This two-in-one bath treatment was created to hydrate—and soothe achy muscles and created from milk, epsom salt, vanilla be and genuine Greek mastiha. It's like self care in a snap.

A member of the six macro-minerals that make up 99% of the body’s mineral content is magnesium. Magnesium assists in building bones, enables nerves to function properly, and is required for the production of energy. It's been documented that soaking in an Epsom salt bath allows magnesium and sulfate to be absorbed through the skin. A simple Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body’s levels of both magnesium and sulfate. Soaking in epsom salt has been know to help relax muscles, loosen stiff joints and detoxify the body.

Buttermilk helps in alleviating dry and irritated skin and is a go-to remedy for sunburns, for its hydrating and calming effect. Mastiha is calming, refreshing and cleansing. It aids in skin regeneration and trauma healing. Mastiha is used as a tonic for exhaustion in North Africa and prized for clarity. Take a bath, relax, feel a billion times better.

OMG O.R.G.

It's been awhile since we've stopped to appreciate the excellence, quality and efficacy that IS O.R.G. This brand is one of our mainstays, and always there for us when our skin needs a little pick me up. Cult favourite product Mineral Peel Face is obsessed over for so many reasons (and the glow is just one of them). It's the first natural, spray-on skin and makeup prep exfoliant ever (really) which is brilliant in and of itself, but it's also full of all-natural ingredients like milk thistle and licorice root (to brighten) and Aloe vera, Jojoba oil, and Mugwort extract (to moisturize). 

A few sprays and the Mineral Peel’s all-natural enzyme formula extracts (years and years of) dermal debris and dead skin within seconds for instantly smoother, softer, radiant skin, and more even tone. It even creates the perfect canvas for flawless makeup application (no more cakey and dull makeup for us). Best of all, the peel is so gentle and non-abrasive, it can be used daily. Those Koreans are GENIUS at skincare.
