How Do Homemade Butters and Gels Last?

I am looking to start making my own whipped mango seed butter and flax seed gel. I am not using any real preservatives, but I am using antioxidants like grapefruit seed extract and vitamin E. Since I am not using any hardcore preservatives, how long is the shelf life for these kinds of products?

    good question, i wouldnt mind knowing either, i want to make my own products as well :)
    any ideas anyone?

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
