Lotion bars, Balms, Salves...

I have so many recipes that I have found and have now confused myself.

I am looking to make a balm for babies bottoms to create a barrier between wet diaper and bottom. I have one recipe that I kind of like (don't know why)that consists of Mango, Shea & Aloe Butters and Beeswax. Does this need a preservative in it? Possibly add some Vit E. Also I want to be able to package these in a 4 oz PET jar.

Were talking our precious babies here so I want a recipe that will be healthy to them and need to be able to get it out of the jar as well.

Any suggestions are appreciated and TIA.

If the recipe contains no water it will not need a preservative.

i would be especially careful about selling products for babies. no essential oils or rag weeds in the products. in fact, i would not sell baby products at all. what a huge responsibility. make sure you have researched and are careful and have insurance.
