Do homemade products need to be refrigerated?

I ordered some shea butter from ebay and if it ever arrives I want to make shealoe or perhaps whipped shea butter. I would also like to try the homemade [buylink=]KCCC[/buylink] recipe and maybe flax seed gel.

Should these be refrigerated? Or are they only good for a certain amount of time?

    Anything with liquid ingredients should be refrigerated. Or you could add a preservative.
    Butters and oils are okay at room temperature.

    My whipped butter/oil concoctions are perfectly fine at room temperature. The FSG and the quasi-[buylink=]KCCC[/buylink] need to be refrigerated, even with Vit E and citric acid in it to help preserve it.
