Mace Spray

While Mace Spray was an irritant similar to tear gas that could allegedly stop an attacker, the results were not as effective as people were lead to believe.

On the other hand, OC Pepper Spray has been proven to be highly effective for causing temporary blindness and inducing burning sensations and difficulty breathing (while not actually being life threatening) to the attacker The “OC” stands for Oleoresin Capsicum which is derived from cayenne peppers. Pepper sprays sold to consumers these days contain at least 10 or 15% of the OC solution, as well as 1.5 million to 2 million Scoville Heat Unit Rating (SHU), making them the most powerful self-defense sprays allowed by law.
