Driven by the call to heal, Paul and Barbi Schulick founded For The Biome™ to awaken consciousness and spread a simple message: beauty is connection. The health of our skin and body, the balance of our minds, and the future of our planet are all connected, and in these tethers, Paul and Barbi find their dharma. With deep roots as meditation teachers and Paul’s formal training as a Master Herbalist, the Schulicks have been uplifting the fusion of body, mind, and nature for over 40 years. Their journey began as they pioneered the fermented whole foods and herbal space while also founding their flagship company, New Chapter. The call still reverberates for Paul and Barbi, and it beckons them on this next chapter to continue healing the entirety of our one and only biome and everything within it. 

Note From Barbi

In the words of the great Zen master, Suzuki Roshi, “The most important thing is to find out what is the most important thing.” In creating For The Biome, we had a chance to do just that. We are not only the founders of For The Biome but the founders of New Chapter, the well-known herbal supplement business, purchased by Procter and Gamble in 2012. Our New Chapter lives were formative and sustaining, so when we ventured out on our own in 2018, we weren’t quite sure where that would lead us. We were both sixty-five years old, retirement age by most standards, yet for Paul the herbs were still calling.
