Fox Labs is a well known brand name in the law enforcement community for good reason. They manufacturer what many believe to be the strongest pepper spray (sometimes referred to as OC spray) on the market today. Founded in 1992, Fox manufactures a large lineup of OC sprays both in the traditional canister and keychain delivery systems.
Fox Labs Background
Fox pepper spray was made famous by its original 5,300,000 Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) formula which is by far the hottest OC spray in the industry. This is far higher than the typical 2 or 3 million SHU heat content found in competitor products. What is unique about this remarkable heat level is that Fox Labs is able to achieve this high SHU rating with only a 2% oleoresin capsicum percentage. The proof, as the saying goes, is in the pudding. Fox Labs uses a premium formula that emphasizes premium grade pepper resin quality which has a direct impact on the overall heat and stopping power of the OC spray. The cost of the pepper resin which Fox uses is is approximately 5-10 times more than their competitors.
While the law enforcement community and civilians rave about Fox’s 5.3 million SHU formula, Fox has developed another innovative premium pepper spray line called Mean Green™ which we believe is one of the most unique pepper spray products on the market today and all law enforcement and civilians should take serious notice.
Mean Green™ Pepper Spray Description
Fox Labs Mean Green is comprised of green OC formulas consisting of pepper resin rated at 3,000,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The pepper resin is so purified it is virtually clear. The quality of the pepper resin used is unmatched in the industry. Other manufacturers use low grade resin and then mix this with other additives, which weaken the overall stopping power and slows the time it takes for the pepper spray to react. Mean Green™ provides intense heat, potent stopping power, is non-flammable and has a unique, easily visible green ID dye that can take days to remove from the skin.
Mean Green™Unique Green Dye
One of Mean Green’s most unique features other than its serious heat and fast acting formula is its bright green dye. This dye makes it easy to identify the attacker for law enforcement officials or campus safety officers. This dye can take days to remove from the skin and means that the attacker will have to stay out of the public eye for many days, or risk being identified as an assailant. This will make the job of identifying these assailants much easier for police. The green dye is vegetable based and safe for human use.
Whether you are a law enforcement officer or a civilian looking to buy pepper spray for general protection to effectively stop and be able identify your attacker, Mean Green™can be an excellent option. The Mean Green™ line is available in both 1.50 and 3.00 ounce canisters (in stream and cone fog) as well as in keychain pepper spray form.
