What is Wildfire made of?
Also known as capsicum spray, it's considered a lachrymatory agent. Meaning this agent is a chemical that irritates the eyes and surrounding skin, inducing pain, inflammation, and tears to the affected area. In using pepper spray, the short-term blindness will afford the person in danger time to escape. As you guessed, the active ingredient in pepper spray is capsaicin which is extracted from plants in the Capsicum genus. Combined with propylene glycol as an emulsifier.
Personal pepper sprays range in power depending on which of the six capsaicinoids is used. The six types are Capsaicin, Dihydrocapsaicin, Nordihydrocapsaicin, Homocapsaicin, Homodihydrocapsaicin, and Nonivamide. The proper way to measure how strong a pepper spray (or peppers) can be is called Scoville Heat Units or SHU. Capsaicin is just one ingredient of the few that blend to make up what is called capsaicinoids. The scale in which pepper sprays are measured is between 2 million to 5.3 million Scoville Heat Units. Total percentage of capsaicinoids in a commercial grade pepper spray can range from 0.18 percent to 1.4 percent.

It's best to keep in mind where you store or carry your pepper spray. Ensure it is out of the reach of any child or pet. It's also recommended that you purchase two pepper sprays. One spray should be kept aside for use in an emergency, and the other can be used in a practice session. Practice sessions should be executed in a safe area away from people and pets on a fake target that represents a predator. Setting aside some time to work with your pepper spray will ensure it will be used appropriately in an emergency situation.
