English term or phrase: separate
XXX has been further developed as an eco compact. A *separate* PP mirror holder can be snapped into the lid. Once the product has been used up, the compact can easily be disassembled and the mirror can be used as a handbag mirror and the plastic components can be easily reground.

"separated" in this sentence

L'objet semble pouvoir être clipsé en remplacement du bac à poudre une fois que ce dernier a été vidé.

Le texte ne précise pas si le miroir est vendu séparément.

"Amovible" pourrait faire l'affaire aussi, mais ça ne ferait pas forcément comprendre que l'objet est déjà détaché dès l'achat.
