Ram Defence Pepper Spray is as OC (oleoresin capsicum) spray. Made from nontoxic and non-flammable materials, the oleoresin capsicum is a chemical derivative of very hot peppers. When sprayed with this the attacker will feel extreme pain and burning as the spray comes into contact with the skin, eyes and mucus membranes. This irritation to the senses is a very effective way to stop or deter a physical attack. Once your attacker loses the ability to attack you will have the chance to escape and find safety. The length of the effects vary from person to person however in tests done the attacker was unable to carry on the attack for at least an hour (effects were still felt well after 3 hours later).
