Default Sennelier tubes ... Toxic?

Does anyone have any insights into how toxic the colours in the large box set are or does it go on a tube by tube basis? I'm painting in the living space that I share with a toddler and only using the Pre mixed tubes, not the pigments. If possible, might someone suggest a non toxic pallette of colours? Many thanks!

It's always tube-by-tube, which is to say mostly pigment-by-pigment. I have a reasonably thorough paper on the matter at , although the information is currently five years old.
