Our sprays are natural ingredients that irritate the eye, permitting an opportunity to escape.

Mace® Brand Pepper sprays are a careful blend of oleoresin capsicum (OC) in a non-flammable vehicle. We manufacture several different formulas--many of which include UV Dye to help identify a possible assailant and tear gas for an extra punch--in a variety of models and spray patterns. Our defense sprays are formulated to be an effective, less-than-lethal means of self defense.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

QWHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT FORMULAS?

OC Pepper: Oleoresin capsicum is a naturally occurring substance derived from hot peppers. OC Pepper causes an intense burning sensation to the skin, eyes and throat upon contact. Mace® Brand defense sprays are available in different strengths to satisfy virtually every requirement.

Tear Gas: Tear Gas is a lachrymatory agent, or lachrymator, which stimulates the corneal nerves in the eyes thereby causing profuse tearing and pain, an intense burning sensation to the skin and shortness of breath. Common lachrymators include CN tear gas (omega-chloroacetophenone) and CS tear gas (ortho-chlorobenzalmalononitrile). UV Dye: As an added defense, many of our formulations contain an ultraviolet dye. The dye will invisibly mark an assailant which may aid in identification. Blended Sprays: Mace® Triple Action formula combines OC Pepper, CN tear gas and UV dye. The advantage of this formula is that it that you don’t have to hit the attacker in the face; even if you hit them in the chest the tear gas will affect your attacker.

Animal Sprays: We also manufactures products for use as deterrents against dogs and bears. Our Muzzle® Canine Pepper Spray and Bear Pepper Mace® are EPA registered products and are effective, humane, non-lethal canine and bear deterrents.

UV Dye: The majority of Mace® Brand Defense Sprays include a UV Dye. This is an invisible marking dye which may help police identify you attacker using an ultraviolet light to show that the individual has in fact been sprayed by pepper spray.

QWHAT IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY SPRAY YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE?

In case of accidental exposure to the contents of your pepper spray, follow these first aid instructions: Remove contact lenses and contaminated clothing immediately.

Flush contaminated area with large quantities of cool water or a diluted baking soda solution. 3) Expose the area to fresh air as soon as possible. Do not apply salves, creams, oils or lotions as they can trap the irritant agent against the skin and result in blisters or burns. Consult a physician if irritation persists.

Contaminated clothing should be washed or dry-cleaned, as appropriate, prior to re-use to prevent skin injury. Caution: failure to follow these instructions may result in first or second degree burns, severe skin irritation, depigmentation or other skin injury.
