Default Custom made background advice?

I’m looking into creating my first custom viv background with silicone and expanding foam, I’ve read all the how to’s on joshsfrogs and watched a few videos on YouTube which was very helpful I just have a few questions about what brands of silicone and foam people could recommend that are safe for my animal. Most of the videos were American so I can’t get the exact brands used in the tutorials here and I don’t want to buy something that I think is the same but is actually very toxic
Any help is greatly appreciated 🙂

I don't know what foam to use
I would use silicone that's used for fish tanks then you know it would be safe
hope this will help
never look down on people only when you are helping them up
