University of Utah reports 30% heat failure rate in personal defense pepper sprays

A 30% heat failure rate in personal defense pepper spray products was reported by the University of Utah in its Quantitative Analysis of Capsaicinoids in Fresh Peppers, Oleoresin Capsicum and Pepper Spray Products, owing to  the industry’s “few, if any, analytical measures to determine the concentration of active ingredients in the product and to ensure consistent chemical composition.”

Every red pepper crop can have varying heat levels.  To ensure maximum heat consistency, the producers of Frontiersman and SABRE Wild MAX bear spray are the only manufacturer with an exclusive in-house high performance liquid chromatography laboratory, an analytical measurement facility that scientifically guarantees maximum strength, every single time.
