Where I live it is VERY hard to get palm oil.  Can it be successfully replaced and if so with what.  What are the issues, loss and gains if any?  I am sure there are.

Palm oil is considered "vegetable tallow" I would point you to tallow or lard.   If you are opposed to animal fats - Cocoa butter.  Palm oil produces a stable creamy lather and the above three will do the same.  If these oils aren't available I guess I would ask if you have access to crisco  - soybean oil that is made with palm oil too.  I do use crisco in some of my bars.  I do like what it does.  Its lather is not a plentiful but there are ways to get around that.  If you are limited to oils then it may be the alternative for you.

Good luck with your soaping!
