I'm afraid of anything with even mild surfactants at this point and that's the only reason I am hesitant to get CeraVe. Considering PSF's Moneygrab Foaming Cleanser did a number on my face, even with its otherwise impressive-sounding formulation, I chalked it up to the mild surfactants used for making it foam. I'll probably pick up some CeraVe anyway, though.
