The cause

Mace brings this non-lethal self-defense product to its stores in India.

Metropolitan cities in India are plagued with horror stories of women abuse, harassment and rape. This has created an environment where women are scared and trapped. To adapt women have contrived rigid rules- “no leaving the house alone after 9pm”, “no taking taxis alone”, “no wearing shorts or skirts”- that most women adhere to not by choice but by lack of choice. Pepper sprays give women their first line of defense allowing them to transverse an unsafe world with more confidence and peace.

Mace sprays

Mace sprays are used as instruments of law enforcement and self-defense across the globe. Mace sprays are 10% solutions that contain either OC pepper, tear gas or both. OC causes eyes to slam shut, uncontrollable coughing and choking whereas tear gas causes disorientation and intense facial burning. Mace defense sprays have a unique characteristic where they contain a long-lasting UV dye which may aid in identification of the attacker. For women, mace sprays are marketed as disguised lip sticks or fashion accessories (as shown in the pictures- check out stores for more styles and colours!). This vital product empowers women to live their lives without fear! It is a product that has been long overdue in our worlds.

Note on use

To use Mace sprays in self-defense, maintain some distance between you and your attacker (so they spray doesn’t affect you). Aim the spray at the eyes/facial region of the attacker and release a 1-2 second burst of spray. Once this has been done, the attacker will be temporarily immobilized- move and seek help! The spray is effective up to a 10 foot range with upto 5 short bursts per can.
