Default Adding Water To Butters & Oils

I really want to make my own water based moisturizer, but I'm clueless when it comes to mixing water with oils and butters, and preserving the mixture correctly. Please help!!

I use an emulsifying wax when I melt the butters and oils together then add water.

I do the same, using a hand mixer. I think it's very similiar to how to make mayo with eggs and oil.

There's a wealth of info online, regarding the type of preservatives to use with oil/water mixes, including the amounts.
