What Is The Difference Between Mace And Pepper Spray?

Mace has become the most trusted and recognized brand of Pepper Spray. It is derived from Oleoresin Capsicum OC, much like other pepper sprays on the market. In addition, many Mace Brand self defense spray products include tear gas and a UV Dye, to aid in identification of your attacker at a later time.

What Are The Effects Of Pepper Spray?

Pepper Spray is manufacture out of hot jalapeno peppers. It's the Capsaicinoids extracted from the heart of the plant, that creates a temporary hot, burning sensation to the eyes and skin. The attackers eyes will shut and water profusely. Inhaling the spray will cause the lungs to feel a burning sensation, along with a temporary feeling of trouble catching ones breath. The effects will last any where from 45 minutes to several days. Pepper spray is meant to allow a victim time to escape and seek help.

What Are The Different Formulas?

Mace Brand sprays is manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes and formulas to please everyone's self defense needs. Most Mace defense sprays contain Oleoresin Capsicum OC, or a combination of OC and Tear Gas, and a UV Dye, which can be used to help law enforcement identify your attacker at a later time, by shining an Ultraviolet light on them, lighting up dye that is invisible to the naked eye.

What Is The Proper Way To Store Pepper Spray?

You should keep your pepper spray in a cool, dry area, and store away from heat, fire or bright lights. Keep from extreme heat, or cold, as stored in your vehicle, where temperatures can range from a high of over 120 degrees F, to a low of 32 degrees F or less. Altitudes may also affect the pressure and aerosol needed to use your spray properly.

How Long Will The Can Last Before It Expires?

Every Mace Brand defense spray will have an expiration date stamped on the label. Most pepper sprays will expire in 4 years from the manufacture date. It is best to test and replace your defense spray about every two years, to ensure it is working properly and has not lost the pressurization that is required to expel the hot product to your intended target. Follow all local, state and federal regulations, when disposing of expired cans of defense sprays.

What Do You Do If You Accidentally Spray Yourself Or Someone Else?

While it is practically impossible to spray yourself, accidents do indeed happen and you will need to get the hot spray off as quick as you can.

  • Immediately wash your hands and remove any contaminated clothing.
  • Wash any contaminated skin with cool water. You may also use a baking soda solution, but do not use any salve, creams, oils or lotions. You do not want to cover the area. Hot pepper spray is much like a heat burn. The skin can blister and burn further, if the heat is trapped under creams and lotions. Just use cool water, until the burning feeling subsides.
  • Consult a physician if the burning and irritation continues for a prolonged period.
  • Wash any contaminated clothing in a bucket of water, away from other clothing that has not been exposed to the hot spray. Pepper Spray is made from the oily, hot part of the plant, so the oil needs to be defused with soapy water, and will spread to other items contained in the bucket.
