The Vendée Globe 2024 challenge
Vendée Globe is held every four years and is known as “the Everest of the seas.” A sailing race around the world, solo, non-stop and without assistance. To date, 167 contenders have taken part in the race—a mere 89 of whom have managed to cross the finish line. A reflection of the extreme difficulty of this trip around the world. Facing cold, wind, waves and the whims of Mother Nature, Diane Reid will be alone aboard her sailing yacht for close to 90 days in order to cross the finish line.
Why Savon Écolo Bio?
Because Savon Écolo Bio is unique and perfectly suited to Diane Reid’s voyage. It is ecological, designed for the body and hair, it lathers in hard, fresh and salt water, and is certified as biodegradable in 28 days by the OECD.
