I'm relatively new to leatherworking, I've made some wearable items like masks and accessories that come in contact with skin, both from chrome tanned leather and dyed veg tan. But now I have come to a safety concern with all those in case of ingesting it.

Is any of it dangerous to put in mouth for prolonged time? I usually coat my veg tan in mix of carnauba cream, beeswax and neatsfoot oil for waterproofing, but after drying it doesn't seem oily to touch.

I would like to make some stylish leather hats for very small gentlemen that, knowing toddlers, will definitely try to eat it. Which is better option, chrome tan or veg tan with finish? If both are safe for the baby, which is better for longlivety of items?
