Shea butter and raw honey wrinkle cream is an extremely simple wrinkle cream to make at home. Making your own wrinkle cream will save you a lot of money over buying commercial products which often contain preservatives and additives to stabilize the product. This recipe makes enough wrinkle cream for about two weeks if it is applied every night before bed, but it is easily doubled. Homemade shea butter and raw honey wrinkle cream also makes an excellent gift, particularly with a customized jar or bottle.
