About Pepper Spray

Self defense pepper spray is a hot burning and blinding liquid that can incapacitate an attacker by causing pain, temporary blindness, skin burning, nose irritation, throat swelling, and respiratory issues.

Pepper spray, also known as capsicum spray, capsaicin spray, OC spray, oleoresin spray, bear spray, and Mace, is made from capsicum which is derived from hot chilies and peppers.

Pepper spray is one of the best less-lethal self defense products because it can disable an attacker from distance without having to make physical contact. This allows women, police officers, and young adults the ability to protect themselves against larger assailants while maintaining their distance.

New innovations in the pepper spray industry have allowed the personal safety device to be carried as more of an accessory rather than a weapon with jewel-decorated and inconspicuous lipstick cannisters.

Moving forward, we will continue to see pepper spray developments such as smaller cannisters, more potent compounds, and more precise release mechanisms.
