Her liking towards Eastern culture provoked her interest in making oral care products based on a holistic approach catering to integrative medicine. Besides, Dr. Rupam also worked hard with her Research & Development, designing, and marketing team.

She became passionate about holistic self-care and wanted to create a platform to empower individuals to prioritize their well-being in all aspects of life. That's when she decided to transition from dentistry to entrepreneurship.


Her inspiration stemmed from observing the increasing stress and burnout prevalent in today's society. She wanted to offer a comprehensive solution that would nurture mind, soul, and body. She created a brand that focuses on promoting self-care through oral wellness practices.

What sets Merakk apart is its commitment to personalized care.

One can not only cure all oral health issues, such as bad breath, toxins, dry mouth, and oral ulcers, but oral care also saves you from chronic illnesses. Remember that your health might be affected later if you fail to take care of your oral wellness before time.

Adding more to it, Merakk’s breath spray and oil pulling for teeth prioritizes quality and sustainability. It sources the finest natural ingredients using eco-friendly packaging. Merakk is built on the principle that self-care should be accessible, inclusive, and empowering for all.
