I do not have ocd so I apologise if this is not helpful. Could you buy more natural products so you do not have to come into contact with hydrogenated oil? If I think about all the products I use, I do not think any contain that at all.

I know there're methods of making your own cosmetics. As I remember they're described in dr H.Clark books.
BTW, have you know the origin of the fear? Maybe you can start a therapy?

If you don't know origins of your fear, you can try hypnotizing.
