In 1992 Fox Labs was founded to make and market the best self-defense pepper spray products available to civilians. They recognized early on that their primary customers were women who use defensive sprays for female self-defense and men who use them for their own personal safety and personal security. They also recognized a need for improved nonlethal self-defense products for the law enforcement community. So, in 1993 they embarked on a program using new formulas for law enforcement
In their research, they quickly discovered that measuring the percentage of OC spray was a misleading way of determining the potency of a pepper spray. They concluded that the only thing that really mattered in determining effectiveness of the spray was the relative hotness as measured by the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) and the amount of ingredients within the formulas-the CRC’s as they are called. Capsaicin and related capsaicinoids (CRC’s) are really what count.
In 1998 they made a pepper spray that had 5.3 million SHU’s but only a 2% concentration of oleoresin capsicum-OC. At that point in time it was the hottest pepper spray available anywhere, which is why it was snapped up by law enforcement agencies all over the country. It also helped that these pepper sprays have longer ranges of at least 20 feet than most other competitive sprays in the marketplace.
