Today we’d like to introduce you to Khiya Braxton.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My name is Khiya Braxton, proud owner and founder of KrownMoss based in Pikesville, Maryland. KrownMoss was built on a personal journey. I’ve always been a healthy eater and I’ve dis-cluded any meat from my diet in the last three years. I wanted to do a detox cleanse without losing my daily vitamins and minerals. So I did some research, and I had heard about sea moss for some time.
I remember when I was younger, about 18, and caught an interview with the late Left Eye talking about this drink that the late Dr Sebi introduced to her when she was doing a cleanse, but she said it taste nasty lol. One of the main ingredients was seamoss. Forward to the present day, I came across a seven-day Sea Moss challenge on Chakabar IG page. I purchased some seamoss and made into a gel. For those seven days, I only drank seamoss in water combined with lemons and key limes, and drank three smoothies a day. In that process I accidentally made too much gel, so I thought, why not sell it. Well, long story short, I produced additional jars and they sold in less than 12 hours. Then the people asked when I was going to make more, and from this KrownMoss was born.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
True be told, this journey has not been a smooth one. I have learned a lot through trail and error but never gave up on myself or my brand. The pandemic has definitely created some challenges for me, with supplies and delivery delays due to lack of employees especially around the holidays with the increase of volume of mail and packages. A few of my client’s packages got delayed or got lost in transit and I had to reship several products. I am grateful for the patience and understanding of my clients.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Krownmoss started with just seamoss gel, which now has expanded into a holistic business base on my lifestyle. Seamoss is mother nature gift with so many life-giving benefits as rids the body of mucus, boost your energy & immune system, detoxifies the body, regulates the digestive system, aids in muscle recovery, suppresses the appetite, helps to strengthen joints & bones, and nourishes hair, skin & nails.

We believe that you are not living your best life possible unless your mind and body are completely healthy. I’m proud to say that I am building something for my children while teaching and providing the community with ways to heal the natural body, naturally without relying on industrial produced pharmaceuticals.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
What I like most about my city is the culture, the food, and music our city has so much history. What I like least is the poverty and crime within the city. I would love to collaborate with other businesses to help families in need.
