No, this is too big for your purse. I used to e a law enforcement pepper spray instructor, and I would recommend a product made by U.D.A.P.(who also makes good bear spray) called the 'Jogger Fogger'. It's a medium sized pepper spray that would fit in your purse but also comes with an elastic band that goes right around your hand so you can't drop it. It works great on dogs or people.

To directly answer your question: Yes. But the label clearly states it is not intended for use on humans and can cause permanent eye damage. I would strongly suggest you first consult an attorney and possibly your local police department to determine if you would face any legal trouble for using this on people, even potential robbers. Your state may or may not permit this and I'd hate for you to face legal jeopardy when all you seek is self-protection.
