French term or phrase: conditionnements terminaux
Hello,

"Les emballages des conditionnements terminaux destinés à la vente sont en plastique recyclables."

This comes under heading "Méthodes de traitement des déchets" in a safety data sheet for a cosmetic product

I don't really get what they mean by "terminaux" here, the product contained in this conditionnement is a cosmetic cream, so I'm supposing it's the plastic tub/bottle the cream comes in, I'm presuming "emballage" is the outer wrapping or box which gets thrown away and the "conditionnement terminal" is that which is only disposed of when the user has finished his cream/lotion.

I've put: "The packaging of the actual product for sale is made from recyclable plastic." this is really vague.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Explanation:
According to http://www.a3p.org/index.php/articles-techniques-et-scientif...
Conditionnement terminal des unités pour envoi : Il s'agit de la dernière phase de fabrication qui permet de mettre en place le produit dans un étui afin de pouvoir le vendre aux pharmacies et aux hôpitaux.

So I think they are talking about the film outer packaging of the box containing the pot/tub/bottle ...
