Some products are made for women only, Omega 5 oil products are unisex

Some tasks or products are reserved exclusively for women, such as breastfeeding [see discussion of male lactation below], while skin care and nutraceuticals are commonly used by both genders, and in perticular, the lines made of Omega 5 and pomegranate essence.
First, can men breastfeed?

Per Wikipdeia, the phenomenon of male lactation in humans has become more common in recent years due to the use of medications that stimulate a man's mammary glands. Though boys and men have nipples, many are unaware that they also have mammary glands. Ordinarily there is so little mammary tissue that it is unnoticeable; if the male breasts develop visibly, the condition is called gynecomastia.
Under the appropriate hormonal stimulus—that nature provides to human females when they become pregnant and give birth—the mammary glands of human males can also produce milk. The volume of milk produced is low relative to that of a lactating female. Male lactation has, in some cases, commenced without hormonal treatments as well.[citation needed] Newborn baby boys (and girls) can occasionally produce milk because of the intense hormones involved in their mother's pregnancy and the hours of childbirth; this is called witch's milk.

Male lactation is most commonly caused by hormonal treatments given to men suffering from prostate cancer. Female hormones are used to slow the production of cancerous prostate tissue, but the same hormones also stimulate the mammary glands. Male-to-female transsexuals may also produce milk due to the hormones they take to reshape their bodies. It can occasionally be a side effect of antipsychotic medication. Extreme stress combined with demanding physical activity and a shortage of food has also been known to cause male lactation. The phenomenon was first studied in survivors of the liberated Nazi concentration camps after World War II. Some American POWs returning from the Korean and Vietnam Wars also experienced male lactation.

It is also possible for males (and females) to induce lactation through constant massage and simulated 'sucking' of the nipple over a long period of time (months)[citation needed].
The phenomenon of male lactation occurs in some non-human species, notably the Dayak fruit bat (Dyacopterus spadiceus), and the lactating males may assist in the nursing of their infants. In addition, male goats are known to lactate on occasion.[1]

Spontaneous male lactation and even nursing have occasionally been observed in humans.[2]
In Why Is Sex Fun?, Jared Diamond reports of male and female cancer patients being treated with estrogen who proceeded to lactate when injected with prolactin, and suggests that mechanical stimulation of male breasts, by releasing prolactin, could result in lactation. He also mentions teenage boys lactating after self stimulation of their nipples. [3]
By contrast -- here is the story of Omega 5
Men have been using skin care for ages. Today, men’s skin care and nutraceuticlas lines, based on biblical essential oils: feature products for maintaining many men health needs, they cover:

Prostate health
heart health, and
healthy sexual function

Recognizing the Symptoms of Prostate Enlargement

Before rusing to test whetner you are able to lactate, do you know how to handle your prostate?
Are you making frequent trips to the bathroom during the night?
Do you enjoy social activities less because you always have to be near a bathroom?
Do you experience a weak urine flow or difficulty in starting urination?
If you are over the age of 50, these symptoms may indicate that you have a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). Although BPH is easily treatable, many men are unaware that treatment is available.
When you suffer of urinary difficulties (such as frequent urination, incomplete emptying of the bladder, a weak urine stream or difficulty starting urination) or if you notice changes in urinary patterns, you should see a doctor. Medications are available that, in some cases, could begin to relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of prostate enlargement within four to eight hours. The good news is that, in general, BPH does not cause erectile dysfunction and does not diminish your sex drive. The reality may also be that the uncomfortable and embarrassing symptoms of an enlarged prostate may not put you in a romantic mood. Having the sudden, urgent need to urinate can be a distraction.

When BPH symptoms affect your lifestyle, the quality of your life also may be affected. What fun is it to go to a movie, if you feel embarrassed by the need to find the bathroom a couple of times during the show? why have friends over if a lack of sleep caused by repeated nighttime trips to the bathroom makes you grumpy, or if concern about your urinary problems makes it difficult for you concentrate on the conversation?
BPH does not need to cause disruptions in your quality of life or affect your lifestyle. The symptoms of an enlarged prostate can usually be treated quickly and effectively with medications that reduce the pressure of the prostate on the urinary system. Once that pressure is reduced, BPH symptoms may improve. That's why you should see a physician.
Things Every Woman Should Know about BPH

An enlarged prostate is the most common prostate health problem among men, usually affecting men over 50

BPH is a condition associated with aging, probably due to hormonal changes

By about age 50, about half of all men have begun to develop an enlarged prostate

For men over 50, prostate enlargement is likely to continue through the rest of their lives

BPH symptoms occur when the enlarged presses against the urethra, the tube that carries urine away from the bladder

As the prostate slowly continues to enlarge, symptoms may gradually worsen, interfering with sleep, physical comfort, and routine activities

BPH symptoms vary with the individual. Some men with BPH experience an urgent need to urinate, while others may have difficulty starting

In most men, BPH symptoms can be effectively managed with medication

If left untreated, BPH may eventually curtail or slow down a man’s activities and interfere with his lifestyle – and could lead to more serious medical complications requiring surgery

BPH is a non-cancerous condition. There is no known link between BPH and prostate cancer

Why are women more than men that cellulite?
The [structure] of collagen, the main protein of connective tissue among the women has the look of a fence, whereas in men it is satisfied over a barrier. You see that the network structure is much stronger [in bold and more].
