 [emul´sĭ-fi″er]
a substance used to make an emulsion.

e·mul·si·fi·er

(ē-mŭl'si-fī-ĕr),
An agent (for example, gum arabic, yolk of an egg) used to make an emulsion of a fixed oil. Soaps, detergents, steroids, and proteins can act as emulsifiers; they stabilize two-phase systems of oil and aqueous phases.
