Default Are this wood shaving brands safe?

Hi! I've been looking for wood substrates for a while and I always get really frustrated because I can't find what kind of wood they are, so I thought that maybe you could give me some advise.

The most common brands I find in the stores in Spain are Vitakraft and Chipsi. I know Chipsi has a few scented ones that I would never buy but I have no idea if the classic one is safe.

If both of them are safe, which one would you recommend?

Chipsi classic (non-scented) are safe; they're 70-75% spruce, which is a safe softwood.

I can't find any info as to what the vitakraft shavings are made of, so I would not use them. The only softwood shavings that we know to be safe are those that are majority spruce, or at least 70%), or 100% spruce.
