Types of Pepper Spray – Brand Reviews

When Fox Labs was established in 1992 they did research with chemists and law enforcement personnel to create the premier OC spray in the industry. OC is the recognized abbreviated form for oleoresin capsicum the main ingredient in pepper sprays.

In 1993, Fox Brand pepper sprays where the first to introduce a 5% concentration of OC spray with 2 million Scoville Heat Units SHU which is a common measure of hotness in products. Other manufacturers at that time were happy with 500,000 SHU resin for their products.

In 1997 Fox Brand pepper sprays introduced a breakthrough formula that revolutionized the industry and has been the standard ever since. It is an OC spray formula using the purest resin rated at 5.3 million SHU.

It has been the standard for law enforcement agencies in United States since then. It works faster and creates maximum heat virtually instantaneously. A spray in the face of an un-compliant suspect from a law enforcement officer will get compliance in 3 seconds or less. Something that is unmatched even today.

In 2007 Fox Brand pepper sprays introduced “Mean Green” a resin rated at 3 million SHU’s. “Mean Green” provides stopping power, intense heat and uses a green dye to identify suspects or assailants.

They currently offer 13 products and range in price from $12.95 for a 1/2 ounce hard case to $49.95 for a 1 pound pistol grip dispenser. They disperse only a spray, which comes out in a steady stream or a fogger.

They have 1/2 oz., 2 oz. and 4 oz. sizes besides the one 16 oz pistol grip. The Fox 4 Ounce Fogger is one of the most popular.


Ever since their inception back in 1992 Fox Brand sprays have been the standard by which all others are measured. They react faster making the job of law enforcement officers around the world easier. They are used by corrections officers, deputies, police officers, border guards, government officials, military personnel like military police and of course discriminating civilians who don’t mind paying a few dollars more for the world’s premier defensive spray.

At 5.3 million SHU’s it is nearly 3 times more powerful than others in the marketplace.

The “Mean Green” spray uses a resin that’s rated at 3 million SHU’s that is so pure that it enables the chemists at Fox to add a green dye that enables police officers to identify assailants and suspects once they are sprayed should they happen to escape.

A unique product that no other company has is a 2 or 6 ounce grenade that can shoot separate shots or when locked and thrown will disburse in the 360 degree radius making it perfect for crowd disbursement.
