Damsel in Defense: 'Hardcore' Pepper Spray
Damsel in Defense: 'Hardcore' Pepper Spray

Idaho-based manufacturer Damsel in Defense offers a host of personal defense products for women, including a line of pepper spray designed to take down an attacker from a safe distance.

Chief among these sprays is the ‘Hardcore’ pepper spray, featuring 18% OC (oleoresin capsicum) and two million SHU (scoville heat units) which enables it to bring down even the most aggressive attacker. Oleoresin capsicum is the active ingredient in this pepper spray. It is derived from from cayenne peppers, which are some of the hottest peppers in the world. Meanwhile, scoville heat units “indicates the amount of OC (oleoresin capsicum) present, but more importantly the heat and thus irritation the pepper spray delivers,” according to the product listing.

This laboratory-tested spray shoots up to 16 feet and has a UV dye for identification purposes. It is lightweight (1.4 ounces), compact (4.5 x 1.5 x 1 inches in size) and features a quick-release/one-hand operation. Hardcore pepper spray is keychain adaptable. It is available in five colors: Purple, Pink, Grey, Coral and Teal. There are four other pepper sprays sold by Damsel in Defense, including “Take It AND Leave It, “Hot Lil’ Hand,” “Take 2,” and “Pouch O’ Pepper.”
