    Hola.

    An African American mother puts a chemical hair straightener in her young daughter's hair and says, "if it weren't healthy, they wouldn't make it for young kids". How would the verb "make" be translated here, and would it be pronominal?

    If it weren't healthy, they wouldn't make it for young kids.

    Si no fuese/fuera saludable, no lo haría/fabricaría para niños pequeños.
    Si no fuese/fuera saludable, no se lo haría/fabricaría para niños pequeños.

    ¿Qué opinan?

    Gracias de antemano.
