What's Inside: PAVA

Our products fire PAVA, a synthetic form of capsaicin, known for its intense heat and irritation properties. PAVA binds to the receptors that send pain and heat signals to the brain, causing targets to experience intense burning on the skin, difficulty seeing, fits of coughing, and discomfort for up to an hour. There are no long term effects.

That’s why we only work with suppliers and manufactures who share our commitment to product safety, testing, and quality materials. HERO and its employees are located in the United States and available to answer any questions you may have.
