    it is possible to store oil based product like pomade and lip balm for 2 year without preservative use in formula.

    Pomade ingredients

    Castor oil
    Microcrystalline wax
    Avocado oil
    Coconut oil
    Essential oil

    It might taste weird but it’s unlikely to grow any microbes unless it gets moisture in the formula.

    Thanks Perry for suggestion but What kind of preservatives can be used for these types of pomade?

    Adding an antioxidant wouldn’t hurt either.
