If you are sensitive to chemicals, why on earth would you risk a nasty chemical like spray foam in your house? I have sprayed a bunch of it with no ill effects but keep in mind, 99.9% of the time its used on a jobsite, nobody lives there and the building is still quite open when used so it has plenty of time to gas off. That and I am not sensitive to chemicals so asking people if its bad stuff when it dont bother them can hardly be helpful, can it?

With that in mind, you should be aware that neither of your options listed will be all that effective. They make sound absorbing materials that would work much better than spray foam or fiberglass insulation. Not only that, there is a good chance alot of the noise is comming from the toilet itself so even with a sound proofed pipe, the noise will still come around through a different part of the wall with no sound proofing.

If you go ahead with the spray foam, be careful. Even the "non-expanding" foam will expand a little and an area like you are talking about is much bigger than the little space around a door or window. Combine that with the fact that the drywall is weaker than a door or window you can see how easy it would be to pop the drywall. To test how weak the drywall is, put a 4 foot level across the studs on your wall and then lean in on the drywall and you can see how little pressure it takes to get the drywall to move. Thats just you pushing on a couple square inches, imagine the foam pushing on a couple hundred square inches.
