Lab comments:
Baggie rinse analyzed twice, small GC/MS response.
Tan powder in baggie. Sample size was too small to conduct reagent tests.
2021 Sep 24: Our experts have identified both of the substances in this sample and our lab has confirmed these identifications with certified reference standards from Sigma-Millipore-Aldrich / Cerilliant.

Unidentified #1 was a clear match for Octocrylene (CAS 6197-30-4).

Unidentified #2 was a slightly less clear match to Bis(2-ethylhexyl) isophthalate. We received the standard for this and ran it several times. It matches, nearly perfectly, the unidentified#2. On a technical note, this chemical GCs so efficiently and clearly changes in the GC column that we ran it through at several dilutions, trying to match the amount in the original sample, and saw that the mass ion m/z heights moved around a little based on the exact run parameters. We now consider this a resolved identification.
DrugsData has no explanation for the combination of these two chemicals in this 'Mystery' sample. They are ingredients in sunscreens and plasticizers. No psychoactive drugs detected.
