This personal defense spray from Mace contains an extremely powerful 1.4 percent capsaicinoid gel formula that is capable of subduing even the most determined attacker. It sticks on contact, minimizing cross-contamination and preventing the target from wiping it away. Because it doesn't create a mist of spray, it is ideal for use indoors and in other cramped environments. It also contains ultraviolet dye, helping law enforcement to identify the right suspect. The spray is effective at ranges of up to 18 feet, and contains enough formula for 15 to 25 bursts. A flip top safety cap prevents accidental discharge.
