The third substance or agent that produces a film between the interface of two immiscible liquids and thereby stabilize the system that is known as an emulsifying agent.Given that the solubility of the liquid depends on the polarity of the mixture of the fluids in the thumb of the rule of solubility is like dissolves like, that means polar liquid dissolves in a polar liquid only and vice versa. By two immiscible liquids, emulsifying agent is used which does not modify the chemical composition of the polarity of the liquid, but acts as a bridge between the immiscible liquids, the polar end of the emulsifier attached to the polar fluid and the non-polar end of the emulsifier attached to the non-polar end, and therefore aid in the dissolution.Therefore, the end of the emulsifier is polar and the other end is non-polar
