We're David and Babatope, co-founders of DABA (Btw DABA = DAvid + BAbatope). We launched DABA in 2023 after nearly two years testing formulas to develop our products. From dealing with acne during puberty to struggling with finding the right grooming products as adults, we wanted to make it possible for men like us to find the perfect solutions for their needs.

DABA was started to make it possible for men with melanin-rich to find simple and safe products that they can use to protect their most vital organ: the skin!

Our Process

At DABA, we develop products using our human-centered, science-first approach. Before developing any product, we talk to our customers to understand the problems they want to solve. Then, we look into the science to find solutions. Our ingredients are selected after a rigorous review of published scientific research. We work with our Scientific Advisors to fine-tune the formulas and ensure our products reach the highest scientific standards.
