I have Chinese recipes, mostly for cakes, that call for "emulsifier (S.P.). Does anyone know what that is?

I have a bilingual cookbook called Joy of Cooking: Make Your Own Pastry and this is where I'm finding this ingredient. Thank you!

Surface perfectant. Helps in even dispersion of oil and water in a cake where they might have a tendency to separate. Often used in sponge cake recipes. Probably can find more info, recipe ideas on web.
